The Top 8 Lines From The Debate So Far

The candidates on terror, sexual assault and yes, sending each other to jail

Have we ever seen a debate like this before? Allegations of rape, threats of putting the other nominee in jail and questions about whether the other candidate is a racist. And that’s in the first half of the debate alone. Perhaps “highlights” is not the best word in this situation. So, here are the most memorable lines from the debate so far:

“No, I have not,” Trump, when asked if has ever sexually assaulted a woman.

“I never questioned their fitness to serve. Donald Trump is different,” Clinton, comparing Trump to past Republican presidential candidates.

“This was locker room talk. I’m not proud of it. I apologized to my family and the American people,” Trump, on the video leak from 2005 showing him talking about groping and kissing women.

“Because you’d be in jail,” Trump on promising to appoint a special prosecutor over Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

“He clarified what he meant,” Clinton, on her husband calling Obamacare a “disaster” during a recent campaign stop.

“Before you solve it, you have to say the name,” Trump, on radical Islamic terror, when asked by a Muslim attendee at the debate on what he’d do about Islamophobia.

“We’ve had Muslims in America since George Washington. … My vision of America is one where everyone has a place … We are not at war with Islam” Clinton, responding to the same questioner about Islamophobia.

“Captain Khan is an American hero and if I were president he would be alive today,” Trump, on his past criticism of the Gold Star Family parents of the soldier who died serving in Iraq.

”A lot of what Donald Trump says about Muslims is used by ISIS to recruit soldiers,” Clinton, on Trump and ISIS.


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.
