US Presidential frontrunners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump exchanged bitter barbs at the second presidential elections on 9 October at St Louis.
The two took each other on on topics including Trump's lewd tape, his alleged tax evasion, Clinton's email server row and rape allegations against Bill Clinton, to name a few.
During the 90-minute-long debate, Clinton berated Trump for the 2005 video - which was circulated 48 hours before the debate. On his part, Trump lashed out at Clinton for defending her husband, former US President Bill Clinton and alleged that he had raped several women. Trump also claimed to have the support of four such women, who were present at the debate.
Here is how Twitter reacted to the second debate:
Some noticed the lack of a handshake - a marked difference from their first presidential debate on 29 September.
I wouldn't touch his hand either. ..he's grabbin genitals #nohandshake— Kathywhite (@white2961) October 10, 2016
Some users joked that like the first debate, Trump was sniffing again.
Others did not take too kindly to the fact that Clinton had compared herself to Abraham Lincoln

She has zero self awareness? https://t.co/pTcLgJJSTu
Here's a handful of reactions from both camps and neutral viewers alike:
