The 7 best Hillary Clinton quotes from the debate (and there were a LOT to choose from)
The second presidential debate took place on October 10th and one thing was clear: Hillary Clinton had so many perfect quotes. The woman slayed. The debate, which took place at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, was moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz. The town hall style debate between the Democratic nominee Clinton and Republican Nominee Donald Trump had the nominees answering questions from real undecided voters. The debate was memorable for many reasons, from Donald Trump brushing off his lewd comments caught on video as “locker room talk” to continually arguing with the moderators over his frequent interruptions.
The CNN/ORC poll found that 57% of people watching the debate felt Clinton won as opposed to the 34% believing Trump won. It was clear that Clinton came armed with clever attacks. She generally owned the room and the millions of people watching.
Here are some of the best quotes she gave the viewers:
When she brushed off his threat on sending her to prison with this burn:
“Good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.”
On the rise of Islamophobia in the United States:
“We are not at war with Islam. It plays into the hands of terrorists to act like we are.”
When she brushed off a series of meager threats and false statements.
“I’m sorry I have to keep saying this, but he lives in an alternate reality.”
On Trump’s supporters:
“My argument is not with his supporters. It’s with him. And with the hateful and divisive campaign he has run.”
On Trump’s refusal to apologize:
“He owes the president an apology, he owes our country an apology, and he needs to take responsibility for his actions and his words.”
Clinton’s thoughts on the lewd video:
What we all saw and heard on Friday was Donald talking about women, and what he thinks about women, what he does to women. And he has said that this video doesn’t represent who he is, but I think it’s clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is because we’ve seen this throughout the campaign.”
Clinton’s clap back on being accused of evading the question:
“Donald, I know you’re into big diversion tonight, anything to avoid talking about your campaign and the way it’s exploding and Republicans are leaving you.”
We’re lucky to live in a country where our voices matter. In just under a month, the presidential election will take place and determine the next four years of our country’s future. We all have a voice, let’s use it and go vote.
