For those of you who weren't able to make the second official "Trump vs. Hillary" show-down, or if you've simply given up on the fiasco, here's what you need to know:
1. Locker Room Talk
During the debate, the topic of the leaked video of Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women was presented by moderators Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper. In response, Donald Trump denies the severity of the footage, coining it simple "locker room talk". He gives a short apology, then eventually goes on to discuss the ISIS terror threat in the same breath. Athletes are appalled by his way of downplaying his lewd comments on women as a common "locker room" practice.
2. Trump's Evasions and Questionable Responses
Throughout the debate, Republican candidate Donald Trump was avoiding questions posed by the moderators. Trump diverted from sensitive topics either by rambling on about other topics or by giving vague and obscure responses. A good example of such is his response to Hillary Clinton's reference to Trump's potential involvement with Russia, where he disregards any relations with the nation by stating "I don't know Russia".
3. The Final Question
The crowd was in uproar as Karl Becker, town-hall participant, requested the two heated candidates to "name one positive thing that [they] respect in one another". Social media has been obsessed with Becker's proposal. Hillary Clinton replied that she deeply respected Trump's children, and Trump responded by complimenting her "fighter" attitude. Many people reacted to Trump's answer by comparing it to his claim in the previous debate, where he said Clinton lacked "stamina".
