As the second Presidential Debate came to a close tonight, one audience member asked both candidates to do something a little different … give one compliment about the other.
Hillary Clinton began and complimented Donald Trump’s children.
“I respect his children. His children are incredibly able and devoted, and I think that says a lot about Donald,” Clinton said.
Donald thanked Clinton for the compliment about his children and announced his admiration for her fight and drive.
“I will say this about Hillary, she doesn’t quit, and she doesn’t give up. She’s a fighter, and I respect that,” Trump ended.
Many commentators and viewers are siding with Trump as his compliment seemed sincere and actually an attribute to Hillary, herself. Hillary on the other hand seemed to take the easy way out and compliment his children. Many feel since Hillary’s daughter Chelsea and Donald’s daughter Ivanka are very close friends, this was a “too easy, low-hanging fruit” compliment.
What did you think of this respectable end to the debate?
