US election: Trump, Clinton trade insults in nasty debate

Donald Trump dismissed his predatory remarks about groping women as “locker room talk,” and took a swipe at Hillary Clinton’s husband Bill over past sexual misconduct in a fiery second US presidential debate on Sunday.

The Democrat Hillary Clinton, facing a deeply wounded candidate with one month to go before Election Day, pushed back by saying Trump’s lewd comments, caught on a hot mic, merely showed his true self.

With tens of millions of Americans tuning in for the televised showdown, the Republican nominee may have been expected to show contrition as he seeks to move beyond the crisis triggered by the tape’s release.

Instead Trump levelled a blunt attack at former president Clinton — present in the audience — asserting that he has a history of abusing women, and inviting several of his accusers to attend the debate.
“If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse,” Trump insisted. “Mine are words, his was action,” he said, claiming that there has “never been anybody in the history of politics in this nation that’s been so abusive to women.”
Clinton refused to take the bait, saying she took the advice that “when they go low, you go high.”

In the tense opening minutes of the showdown, Trump also clashed with Clinton on her private use of emails while secretary of state, warning that if he becomes president he will order the Justice Department to launch a special investigation into the issue.

When Clinton responded that it was “awfully good” that someone with Trump’s temperament was not leading the nation, he shot back: “Because you’d be in jail.”

Trump is facing a make-or-break moment after his lewd boasts, which he made in 2005 and which became public Friday, brought sweeping condemnation from within his own party and calls for him to step aside.
Pressed by the debate moderator who asserted that he had bragged of sexually assaulting women, the billionaire Republican lashed out:
“Certainly I’m not proud of it. But this is locker room talk.”

Trump’s Democratic rival fired back that he has spent much of his presidential campaign denigrating women and minorities.
“This is who Donald Trump is, and the question for us, the question our country must answer is that this is not who we are,” she said.

– ‘Desperation’ –
With his campaign in chaos, Trump has stepped up his attacks on former president Clinton, asserting that he has a history of abusing women.
In an extraordinary step, Trump convened a press event just moments before the debate that included several women who accuse him of sexual harassment and rape.
Introduced by Trump as “very courageous women,” his invited speakers included Paula Jones, a former government employee in Arkansas who sued Bill Clinton for sexual harassment, and Juanita Broaddrick, also of Arkansas, who claims that Clinton raped her in 1978.

The debate came at perhaps the most pivotal moment of the 2016 presidential race, with Trump needing a dramatic boost if he is to claw back ground against Clinton, who has surged in the polls since their first debate on September 26.
Clinton’s campaign has dismissed Trump’s sensational targeting of Bill Clinton as an “act of desperation.”

“Republicans are leaving you,” Clinton told him on the debate stage, saying his campaign was “exploding.”
punch report.

Donald Trump is unbelieveable..OMG!
Will Americans vote him in?na wah!


  1. I really wanted him to win but I don't really think with all these tapes degrading women coming out now if he stands a chance.

    1. It's just annoying when he never answers his questions. First 2mins goes to attacking Hilary and then when he is told his question again,he just yarns dust.
      Hilary is a politician so you don't expect less from her answers.
      Till oct19th and nov8.

    2. @Blossom you really wanted him to win? Smh*

  2. It's very clear he'll never make a good president, the only reason he's been rising in the polls is because of gender, because his opponent is woman.

    Your comment will be visible after approval.

  3. Hillary Clinton is an enabler and a criminal.

  4. Na wa ...Americans sabi keep records o.

    You don't even know what these people can do.
    They secretly love the bad person.

    1. Donald shit keep talking about Bill and Emails. So fucking childish, stupid and crying spoilt baby motherfucker!
      I will never in my life vote or donate a dime to elect any republican candidate.They're racist and they don't like black people.

  12. What Donald said on that tape is not far from what almost every normal guy talks about. In fact,people that talk so much sometimes have little or no action. A lot of us are guilty of this. Too bad he got caught.

    1. Thanks for this. I just love your submission.

  13. Pls Americans vote in someone who will make migration easy oooo! I wish to relocate my family to US next year.

    He ended the debate by endorsing Hilary­čśé
    "She is a fighter and never gives up!"

  16. He's winning ... Take it or leave it.

  17. The way Nigerians in Nigeria carry American politics for head when most don't even participate in Nigerian elections is ridiculous.

    1. Ehhnn, leave it like that, it's more intelligent, and we want to learn from intellectually sound people...

  18. Let this election come and go, in this case, there's really no worthy candidate, just a case of 2 bad eggs...

  19. With Trump in the White House United States will have more enemies than anticipated.. Trump is a man that talks carelessly without reasoning. America doesn't need such man as a president,he's just a chameleon.
