Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign will be inviting the mother of one of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack’s victims to sit in the front row as a VIP guest during the third and final presidential debate Wednesday evening.
According to Yahoo News, the invitation to the debate was accepted by Patricia Smith, mother of slain State Department IT specialist Sean Smith, who has placed the blame for her son’s untimely death at the feet of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.
“I think I’m going to be in the front row. But I’m not sure,” Smith said when asked by Yahoo about her attendance at the debate and what she hoped to accomplish. “I want to look in Hillary’s eyes and have her lie to me again.”
Just imagine how Clinton might react to that. She’s not as cool under pressure as her husband; she could easily become rattled enough to do or say something that would destroy her entire campaign.
Indeed, Smith has maintained for years that Clinton lied to her about what happened that fateful night in Benghazi, most recently speaking about it at the Republican National Convention, where she bluntly stated, “I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son. Personally.”
Trump campaign adviser and surrogate retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn also spoke to Yahoo about the decision to invite Pat Smith to the debate, expressing the hope that Smith’s presence would compel Clinton to be truthful to the American public about her State Department’s failings in regards to the Benghazi attack.
“Hillary said ‘What difference does it make’ — the difference was four lives were lost in Benghazi, and the families have still never had a solid answer from Hillary Clinton as to why we allowed this to happen,” stated Flynn. “Hopefully Wednesday these families will get their answer.”
It will most certainly be interesting to see how this all plays out Wednesday, as Smith’s presence on the front row at the debate will no doubt be noticed by Clinton.
It is quite possible that, should Smith be able to make solid eye contact with Clinton, she could very well rattle her and completely throw her off her game plan, providing an opening for Trump to land significant blows in the all-out political brawl.
