even less debatable

Rolling Stone lists "the most WTF moments from the most WTF debate of the most WTF election in U.S. history." Here's my favorites:

Moderator Anderson Cooper: "You called what you said locker-room banter - kissing women without consent, grabbing their genitals. That is sexual assault. You bragged that you have sexually assaulted women."

Trump: "I don't think you understood. This was locker room talk. I'm not proud of it. ... But this is locker-room talk. When we have a world where you have ISIS chopping off heads, where you have frankly drowning people in steel cages, wars and horrible, horrible sights all over, so many bad things happening. We haven't seen anything like this. The carnage all over the world. Can you imagine the people that are frankly doing so well against us with ISIS. And they look at our country and see what's going on. Yes, I'm very embarrassed by it. I hate it. But it's locker-room talk and it's one of those things. I will knock the hell out of ISIS. We're going to defeat ISIS."

Trump's "bad things/ISIS" dodge isn't quite as reflexive as Rudy Giuliana's "a noun, a verb, and 9/11" formulation, but it's close. Here's another winner:

On Trump's plans for Clinton if he becomes president

Trump: "I'll tell you what, I didn't think I'd say this, and I'm going to say it, and hate to say it: If I win, I'm going to instruct the attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there's never been so many lies, so much deception. Never been anything like it, and we're going to have a special prosecutor.

Politico calls him out in their list of Clinton's 2 errors, and Trump's 13:

And on the biggest question of the night -- how Trump would answer for leaked audio in which he described his technique for making unwanted sexual advances on women -- Trump largely got away without answering at all.
