Heading into Sunday night's second 2016 presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis, all eyes were on Republican candidate Donald Trump in the wake of his offensive comments recorded during an appearance on the set of "Days of Our Lives" for a 2005 cameo.
Political observers and many American voters, including outraged conservatives, have condemned Trump's sexist remarks and questioned whether he can effectively recover from the issue over the final month before the Nov. 8 election.
Twitter was quick to rule on Trump's handling of the barrage of questions served up to him by Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz.
Locker room talk = things that sexual assaulters say?— shonda rhimes (@shondarhimes) October 10, 2016
When Trump says it's just "locker room talk," he's defending the very culture that normalizes sexual assaults on women.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) October 10, 2016
Donald just gave all of his answers he had memorized , to the first question— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) October 10, 2016
By the end of the debate Trump will wish he had stayed in the locker room.— the dead author (@thedeadauthor) October 10, 2016

Donald Trump's 'debate prep' was actually a panel of women accusing Bill Clinton of sexual assault https://t.co/156M7d1nzq— TIME (@TIME) October 10, 2016

It's safe to assume no presidential candidate in US history has explicitly threatened his opponent with a trial if elected. #debate— Colin Moriarty (@notaxation) October 10, 2016
