    Hillary Clinton said Donald Trump was using “scare rhetoric” during an exchange about "late-term, partial-birth" abortion in Wednesday’s presidential debate. After Clinton explained why she had opposed legislation that banned such procedures, Trump said that in that case “you can take baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby.” (Published Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016)

    The third and final presidential debate between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton started and ended without a handshake at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas Wednesday night.

    The candidates shared their views on abortion, international trade, Obamacare, border security and deportation. 

    "I want to build a wall. We need a wall... We have some bad hombres here and I want to get them out," said Trump.

    Clinton pointed to Trump's campaign discourse regarding building a wall between Mexico and the United States. However, she recalled when he met with the Mexican president, he didn't discuss it. "He choked," Clinton said.

    #Badhombres began trending on Twitter shortly after this exchange. 

    Clinton said of Russia and U.S. relations that Putin would get along with Trump as president "because he'd rather have a puppet as president."

    "No, puppet. You're the puppet," Trump fired back, sparking plenty of puppet-related gifs and memes.

    Toward the end of the debate, Trump said he would wait to see what happened before accepting the election results.

    "She's such a nasty woman," Trump added.

    Not long after, Twitter timelines included #NastyWomen.

    Chicago activitist Marcos Mateo Ochoa tweeted, "To all my fellow #badhombres and #nastywomen remember you have the power to vote!!! #debatenight #debate"
