The father of the Orlando shooter Omar Mateen seated behind Hillary Clinton three rows up at Florida campaign rally. He says he's a longtime Democrat and that the Democratic Party invited him to listen to Hillary Clinton.

He wasn't invited. It was an open situation. Bad optics? Oh yeah! But there was no "invite".

Did you keep listening? He was asked if it was a (general) chain email or a personal invitation. He said he's "a member" and as a member he gets invitations; "there's nothing particular about it."

It wasn't a *personal* invitation; it was the general announcement of an event to all party members.

A person does not get seated directly behind the candidate, three rows up, in full view of the cameras and reporters without being asked to sit there. It just doesn't happen.

So are you supporting the father shooter and his remarks made shortly after the shooting?

No, I don't support his opinions.

I also do not see any facts to support anyone other than your question saying he was invited.

He shows up and someone notices. That is interesting.

Whether I agree with any of his opinions or not, I don't think he should have to hide himself away for something his son did.

No, he does not say he was personally invited by the Democratic Party.

He said he received a notice that all registered democrats received. There was "nothing in particular" about his "invitation."
