Debate watchers have declared Clinton the winner of the third and final debate making this a clean sweep for her. While Clinton’s first two performances showed a modest need for improvement, as she’s not particularly known for her debating skills, she unpacked a knapsack of hurt. Not only did Clinton win the third debate, she effectively and eloquently assailed Trump.

A Real Clear Politics national poll average, showed that there was only 1.5 percent between Clinton and Trump going into the first debate. However, subsequent to a leaked audio recording, where Trump is heard bragging about sexually assaulting women, Clinton has surged in the national polls including very important swing states.

If Trump had even the slightest chance of overcoming his recent double digit deficit, it would have needed to happen during the final debate. This is the first debate since the leaked audio and it has resulted in multiple women coming forward with allegations of sexual assault and misconduct, perpetrated by Donald Trump.

Part of Clinton’s response to Trump’s views on women was that “Donald thinks belittling women makes him bigger. He goes after their dignity, their self-worth, and I don’t think there is a woman anywhere who doesn’t know what that feels like. So we now know what Donald thinks and what he says and how he acts towards women. That’s who Donald is.” Trump could not help himself from eventually proclaiming that Clinton is “Such a nasty women.”

His comment did not elicit a response at the debate but within moments social media witnessed what USA Today says “may be the fastest case of reappropriation in this election cycle.” Women took it, owned it and ran with it, with a little help from Janet Jackson’s “Nasty Boys.” Spotify is now showing a 250 percent streaming increase for “Nasty Boy” in less than 24 hours, USA Today says. Women on social media are self-proclaiming themselves as nasty and the hashtags like: #ImWithNasty, #NastyWoman #NastyWomenUnite, #MrsClintonIfYoureNasty, are nearly unavoidable on social media and Twitter:

No “nasty woman” is complete without a “bad hombre.” Trump did not leave out illegal immigrants either. In the past he’s called them rapist and murders. At the debate he stressed the need for the deportation of illegal immigrant. In the past he’s talked about the mass deportation of all immigrant without the possibility of amnesty. Even for those who have been living in America for decades in some cases. Clinton mentioned the irony, which is illegal immigrant pay more in federal income taxes than trump does. Trump’s final stance on the topic was that “We have some bad hombres here and we’re going to get them out” You just can’t make this stuff up.

What was once a close and winnable election for Trump was bungled by Trump himself. It is almost as though it couldn’t have happened any other way. America is faced with voting for two of the most disliked presidential candidates in polling history according to The Huffington Post and FiveThirtyEight. But for Trump being the man he is, Clinton could have very easily lost to a run-of-the-mill republican candidate. Some people think that Trump has been a conspiracy from the very beginning and that he has been purposely trying to lose in order to help Clinton and the democrats. It is a wild speculation, but imagining his campaign looking anymore different than it does now if he were in fact trying to lose, is obscure.
