The 10 Best Lines From The Debate So Far

We have some bad hombres here and we’re going to get them out

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump took the stage for their third and final debate Wednesday night. So far, it’s been a more civilized affair than the first two debates, with the candidates hardly interrupting each other. And we can all thank moderator Chris Wallace for keeping things relatively under control.


But that doesn’t mean there haven’t been fireworks with the candidates taking shots at each other on issues ranging from abortion to immigration and guns.

And, of course, it seems Trump has the line of the night so far talking about “bad Hombres.” Here are the 10 most memorable lines from the debate so far:

HILLARY CLINTON:

On the Supreme Court, Clinton said she would appoint justices, “in the great tradition of standing up to the powerful.”

On the Second Amendment: “I understand and respect the tradition of gun ownership.”

On overturning Roe v. Wade: “We’ve come too far to have that turned back now.”

On Trump’s immigration plan: “I think it’s an idea that would rip the country apart.”

On Wikileaks: “This has come from the highest levels of the Russian government.”

DONALD TRUMP:

On his Supreme Court nominations: “The justices I will appoint will be pro-life, they will have a conservative bent.”

On if he’d overturn national abortion laws: “That will happen.”

On late-term abortions: “You can say that’s ok, and Hillary can say that’s ok, but it’s not ok with me.”

On immigration: “We have some bad hombres here and we’re going to get them out.”

On Wikileaks: “That was a great pivot on the fact that she wants open borders … I don’t know Putin. He’s said nice things about me. If we got along, that would be good.”

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
