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.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
