With only 18 days left until the American election Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have gone head-to-head for the third and final debate in Las Vegas and, oh boy, Trump sure is looking less qualified than ever.
We’ve become accustomed to watching the Republican nominee bait, berate and straight up just yell over his vastly more experienced opponent and today was no exception.
Things kicked off much like the last debate — with no handshake — and didn’t really improve from there, although it was certainly more civilised than the pair’s previous encounters.
They started with gun laws and ended by offering their final pitches for the presidency, articulating come stark policy differences along the way.
Trump also managed to use the word “bigly”, somehow.
Here’s the moments we can’t stop talking.
Trump’s ill-informed take on abortion.
About 20 minutes in, shortly after declaring his pro-life stance and alluding to a plan to wind back women’s reproductive rights in America, Trump argued that a Clinton presidency would lead to babies being “ripped” from their mother’s bodies via late term abortions.
“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,” he told moderator Chris Wallace.
“But it’s not okay with me, because based on what she is saying and based on where she’s going and where she’s been, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb, in the ninth month, on the final day. That’s not acceptable.”
Clinton responded by saying that governments had no right to control women’s bodies.
“This is one of the worst possible choices that any woman and her family has to make,” she said. “And I do not believe the government should be making it.”
When Trump was asked about the multiple sexual assault allegations that been levelled against him.
Trump declared the 11 sexual assault claims levelled against him have been “debunked”, dismissing them repeatedly (and aggressively) as “lies” pedalled by the Clinton camp.
“I don’t know those people. I have a feeling it was her campaign that did it,” he said.
“Nobody has more respect for women than I do.” The audience then laughed. A lot.
