As has become standard operating procedure for Donald Trump in the debates, he interrupted both his opponent Hillary Clinton and the moderator, Fox News’ Chris Wallace. Perhaps the most egregious interruption was when he dove headlong into Clinton’s time to call her a “nasty woman.” Here’s how Twitter reacted to Trump’s needless slight.
Many were quick to empathize with Clinton and attempted to make the slight empowering.

Others saw the contradictions inherent in Trump’s words.
TRUMP: such a nasty woman. a gender of which no one has more respect for than me.

"Such a nasty woman."
"Our women are not respected."

Everyone was appalled by what he said.
Trump saying "Such a nasty woman" when she's talking is like a hair away from just throwing a bucket of his piss at her.

This debate can be summed up in that one ugly interruption by the most horrible person ever to run for president: "Such a nasty woman."

If not for the fact that Trump said he won't accept the results of this election .. him calling her a nasty woman would be the headline

NY's hottest club is #NastyWoman. It has everything. Rigged Emmys. Bad hombres. Donald rejecting two centuries of American democracy.

Trump’s “nasty woman” comment had @JeffnerA yelling at the TV for literally the first time ever. She sounded like me watching football.

And of course, many of us saw the imminent merchandising possibilities.
