Trump's advisers thought that this was somehow a good idea. He's lost his mind folks.

Politico: Trump hosts surprise panel with Bill Clinton's accusers:

Under fire for bragging about sexual assault, Donald Trump tried to redirect by holding a surprise panel, broadcast live to Facebook, with women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct on Sunday evening, just an hour and a half before he was set to square off with Hillary Clinton in their second presidential debate.

Seated beside four women -- including Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Kathy Shelton -- Trump addressed viewers ahead of the debate, making an issue of Bill Clinton’s own sexual history as the GOP nominee faces a mass defection from within his own party.

“These four very courageous women have asked to be here, and it was our honor to help them,” Trump said of the women who then excused his comments caught on tape and released on Friday.

“Actions speak louder than words,” said Broaddrick, who alleged in 1999 that Clinton raped her in 1978 -- a claim that Clinton has denied. “Mr. Trump may have said some bad words, but Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary Clinton threatened me. I don’t think there’s anything worse.”

“I think they should all look at the fact that he is a good person,” Jones said of Trump.“He's not what other person have been saying he has been, like Hillary."

He's trying to literally turn this presidential campaign into a reality television show. I expect it to backfire on him badly.
