Donald Trump has invited Patricia Smith, the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith, to attend Wednesday’s debate as his VIP guest. VIP guests are given preferential seating, and are seen on TV.
Trump is not a stranger to this type of stunt. He did something similar at the last debate, inviting 3 women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, and one woman who was raped by a man that Hillary Clinton represented when she was a young lawyer.
The New York Post said:
The mother of a Benghazi victim who blames Hillary Clinton for her son’s death will attend the third presidential debate on Wednesday — as a VIP guest of Donald Trump.
Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, a State Department IT consultant killed during the terrorist attack in Libya on Sept. 11, 2012, told Yahoo News she would accept the mogul’s invitation to the final showdown between the candidates in Las Vegas.
“I want to look in Hillary’s eyes, and have her lie to me again,” Smith told Yahoo News.
In Smith’s speech to the Republican National Convention in July in Cleveland, she directly blamed Clinton for the death of her son.
“I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son,” she said at the political convention. “Personally.”
We feel terrible for Ms. Smith, as losing a child (and her only child) is the worst thing a person can bare. But Hillary Clinton didn’t kill her son.
