The 9 best memes about the presidential debate, which are obviously the best part
The second presidential debate took place earlier this evening in a town hall format at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump and Democratic Presidential Nominee took questions from real undecided voters in the debate hosted by ABC’s Martha Raddatz and CNN’s Anderson Cooper. When asked about the now infamous “lewd tape” scandal, Trump reiterated his earlier statements, calling the comments, “locker room banter” and telling the crowd that with him as president, Clinton would be in prison. Clinton called Trump out for his continual lies, sticking to her talking points on topics like universal healthcare and aid in Syria.
