Memorable lines from the third presidential debate
Last night wasn’t just Game 4 of the National League Championship Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs – it was also the third and final presidential debate. Whichever one you decided to watch, by now you’ve probably heard about some of the most memorable moments from the debate. Just in case (and because it’s fun to look back over them), I’ve put together some of the most memorable lines.
“We have some bad hombres here, and we’re going to get them out.”
Donald Trump, when explaining his immigration and border control policies. Twitter had a lot of fun with this one, especially as Trump mispronounced the word (he said it like “hambres,” which means hunger in Spanish).
“If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby.”
Trump explains his view of abortion and why he’s pro-life.
“Well, that is not what happens in these cases. And using that kind of scare rhetoric is just terribly unfortunate.”
Hillary Clinton, responding to Trump’s description of abortion.
“Putin would rather have a puppet as president of the United States.”
Clinton talks about why Russia could be behind the hacking of emails released by WikiLeaks. Basically she’s saying Russian President Vladimir Putin wants Trump in power because he can control him.
“No puppet, no puppet… You’re the puppet.”
Trump’s response to Clinton’s previous comment.
“I didn’t even apologize to my wife who is sitting right here because I didn’t do anything. I didn’t know any of these women. I didn’t see these women. These women, the woman on the plane, I think they want either fame or her campaign did it, and I think it’s her campaign.”
Trump said he had nothing to apologize for in regards to the “debunked” (according to him) sexual assault allegations.
“Nobody has more respect for women than me. Nobody.”
Trump’s response to Clinton saying he liked to belittle women to make himself feel bigger.
“What I’m saying is that I will tell you at the time. I’ll keep you in suspense, OK?”
Moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump if he’d accept the results of the election, no matter what they were. Trump said twice he’d have to wait until the results were in before making a decision.
These are only a few of the most memorable moments from last night’s debacle. Who do you think won the third presidential debate?
