In the final moments of the final 2016 presidential debate, Donald Trump interjected to call Hillary Clinton “such a nasty woman.”

In a campaign that’s been marked for months by a trading of insults and unpleasantries, the “nasty woman” comment may have been the most direct and piercing. It was also the most commented-on moment in the third debate on social media.
How do you go from:
"nobody respects women more than me" to "such a nasty woman" #Debates2016

Hillary is nasty. Good that Trump pointed it out.

His refusal to accept the elections and "she's such a nasty woman" comment will be all the news tomorrow. And he did it to himself.

good and bad moments for both but he lost control at end when calling her a nasty woman – that's not how you boost #s among a demo you need

It doesn't give me pleasure to relate to Hillary, but I am an extremely nasty woman.

I'm still wondering what was the excuse for the "such a nasty woman" crack. Unprovoked and miscalculated. #debates2016

What voters that he doesn't already have does Trump think he wins by saying "such a nasty woman"?

Trump calls anyone who offers the slightest criticism "nasty." It's the funniest thing how thin-skinned he is.

In another highly quotable, highly commented-upon moment, Trump referred to “bad hombres” during the portion of the debate dedicated to immigration.
'Bad Hombres and Nasty Women' could be the title of a mediocre erotic novel
