Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton faced off last Sunday for the second presidential debate in this election year. In this debate the candidates were kept in check by a moderator as opposed to letting them talk freely in the first debate,  which only ensued chaos.

This debate was moderated by Anderson Cooper who is a news anchor for CNN. Some people had mixed reviews of Cooper’s moderation style.

“I feel like Cooper and the media always throw the republican candidates under the bus.” William Morris, Senior

Trump was questioned about a recent audio recording that surfaced where Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women.

Hillary commented, “he has said the video doesn’t represent who he is. But I think it’s clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is.”

Hillary was not questioned on the federal investigation on Hillary’s personal email. Some would say this is not fair.

Trump remarked, “If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation.”

Many back and forth snarks and witty remarks that diverged from the main material. Unfortunately most of the debate was slow ball, easy questions and rants that go off on tangents.

Because of this, no clear winner could be determined and the debate didn’t clear up anything.
