Sunday night’s epic Trump v Clinton debate had all fireworks of a WWE match and the no-holds-barred vitriol of an everything-at-stake Roman gladiator fight to the death, and the line of the night, given by Donald Trump, made it abundantly clear to Hillary just what IS at stake – for her at least.
The line came about 20 minutes in, when Trump responded to Hillary Clinton’s “it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.” with a droll “Because you’d be in jail.”
The line drew the first applause of the night and seemed to loosen Trump up who, before then, had been on the defensive from Clinton’s attack on his recent “locker-room talk” and past scandals.
Needless to say, Twitter went wild!
Hillary: We can't allow Trump to be President….Trump: Because you'd be in jail. #debate hahaha!

I just jumped out of my chair on the "because you'd be in jail" comment. I'm also pretty sure I woke up my children. #Debate.
