The insults are coming fast and furious in the second presidential debate in St. Louis, with threats of imprisonment and attacks on fitness to office. Below are the seven harshest insults of the night so far between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Trump refers to Clinton as “the devil”

“All you have to do is take a look at WikiLeaks, and see what they said about Bernie Sanders and between superdelegates and Deborah Wasserman Schultz,” Trump said, “I was surprised to see him sign on with the devil.”

Trump calls Bill Clinton the worst abuser in political history

"There's never been anybody in the history of politics in this nation that's been so abusive to women. So you can say it any way you want to say it, Bill Clinton was abusive to women," Trump said, as the former president sat in the audience. "Hillary Clinton attacked those same women and attacked them viciously. Four of them are here tonight."


Clinton calls Trump unfit to serve

“You know, with prior Republican nominees for president, I disagreed with them on politics, policies and principals, but I never questioned their fitness to serve. Donald Trump is different.”

Trump says he’d jail Clinton

“It's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” Clinton said in response to Trump’s vow to appoint a special prosecutor to go after her.

"Because you would be in jail,” Trump shot back.


Trump tells Clinton she should be ashamed of herself

“For you to say that there was nothing wrong with you deleting 39,000 e-mails, again, you should be ashamed of yourself,” he said.

In response to Trump bringing up Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, she retorted, “Okay, Donald. I know you are into big diversion, anything to avoid talking about your campaign and the way Republicans are leaving you.”


Trump calls Clinton a hater

“She has tremendous hate in her heart, and when she said 'deplorables,' she meant it,” Trump said, adding, “she’s got tremendous hatred.”
