Donald Trump massively trolls President Obama with his VIP debate guest

In today’s edition of Stars! They’re Just Like Us, CNN reports that Donald Trump invited President Obama’s half-brother, Malik, to attend Wednesday night’s third and final presidential debate in Las Vegas. That’s cold, Donald!

Along with Obama’s Kenyan-born half-brother, the Trump campaign also invited Patricia Smith, whose son Sean died in the Benghazi attacks, and who has accused Hillary Clinton of personally “murdering” him.

But the debate invite pettiness is bipartisan: the Clinton campaign has again invited Mark Cuban, the billionaire Trump nemesis, who sat in the front row for the first contest in Long Island. The Dallas Mavericks owner, who endorsed Clinton, has long been a Trump antagonist.

Meg Whitman, the Hewlett-Packard CEO and a longtime Republican who has also endorsed Clinton, will also attend the debate as a guest of the former secretary of state, her campaign confirmed to CNN.

But this is all (maybe?) an improvement from the second debate, where Trump’s campaign invited four women who have accused the Clintons of sexual assault and misconduct to sit in the front row.

Thank God we only have one more of these.
