When asked about the folly of inviting Gennifer Flowers to the first presidential debate, Gov. Mike Pence told Chris Wallace the real story was the Clinton camp inviting Mark Cuban, "Hillary Clinton apparently thinks this is an episode of "Shark Tank."

Say, what?

Donald Trump has run his entire campaign as if it's been one long season of The Apprentice.

Hypocrisy much?

Much of Donald Trump's TV fame came from hosting his reality show on NBC and being the King of the Birthers.

Mark Cuban is a self made billionaire, while Trump was born with a proverbial silver spoon in his mouth.

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked, "Trump invited Gennifer Flowers, who once had an affair with President Clinton, to also sit in the front row. She has accepted that invitation. Two questions. Why would Trump do that, and will Gennifer Flowers actually be there tomorrow night?"

Gov. Pence responded that it was the Clinton camp who was making a mockery out of the debate and said, "Hillary Clinton was trying to distract attention away from this moment in our national life."

Inviting Gennifer Flowers has everything to do with being a media distraction.

Wallace pushed harder and asked, "The Wall Street Journal" wrote, it shows people top concern about Donald Trump is, one, his temperament, and two, his language, especially towards women. So why would Trump even go down the road of bringing up Gennifer Flowers, who once had an affair with the president?"

As usual, every time the Trump camp is asked about something ridiculous Donald has done, they always shift to Hillary.

Pence replied, "The question really should be why was Hillary Clinton and her campaign, you know, inviting some celebrity basketball team owner to the debate to sit on the front row, someone who has mocked and ridiculed my running mate."

As opposed to being a "Celebrity Apprentice" host?

Wallace asked, "Do you really see those two as equivalent? Mark Cuban and Gennifer Flowers?"

Pence continued, "Well, look, you know, Mark Cuban has been out there saying some pretty tough stuff about my running mate. Mark Cuban knows as much about national security as I do about professional basketball."

Awww, poor baby. Mark Cuban was mean to Donald. Talk about having a thin skin.

Pence continued saying that it was Hillary that was trying to distract the nation and play games with front row seats and he said, "Donald Trump's not about that."

Yes, he is, Gov. Pence. Inviting Gennifer Flowers is all about playing games and turning one of the most import night's of any presidential campaign into a sh*t show. That's all Trump is about.

Gov. Pence did say that Flowers was not going to be there Monday night so we shall see.

"Gennifer Flowers will not be attending the debate tomorrow night."
