In the second presidential debate, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump argued over women, Obamacare, emails, tax provisions, Syria, Russia and energy policies in Missouri on Sunday night. Many political commentators have called this the “ugliest” debate. The debate started off with coldness with the candidates skipping their traditional handshake. Both the candidates indulged in slander and described why the other was not fit to be presidential candidate.

* When asked about the 2005 tape that was released on Friday, where Trump bragged to sexually assaulting women. Trump replied, “This was locker room talk. I’m not proud of it. I appologise to my family I appologise to the American people, certainty I’m not proud of it but this is locker room talk. You know, when we have a world where we have a world where you have Isis chopping off heads…Can you imagine the people that are frankly doing so well against us with Isis and they look at our country and they see whats going on. Yes, I am very embarrassed by it. I hate it. But its locker room talk and its one of those things. I will knock the hell out of Isis we are going to defeat isis.”
