If you happen to be one of the many people who watched the second presidential debate last night, I think you will agree that it was a fun, carefree, joyous romp for all.
Just kidding! In many ways, this debate was even more exhausting and irritating than the first one. This is due in large part to its town hall-style format that allowed “undecided voters” (who still exist, apparently) to ask questions of both candidates, as well as the unsavory (though not necessarily surprising) news that was revealed about Donald Trump just a few days prior, which I don’t care to write down, but you can read about here.
There were bright spots, of course. Kenneth Bone, for example. Sometimes, it looked like Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were about to break into a duet. Personally, I was just thrilled that the Trump estate let my favorite member of the Trump family, Tiffany Trump, out of the basement for the night, as she looked fantastic and successfully curved her dad’s advances. Also, Trump, for whatever reason, decided that his only debate technique for the night was to, like, hover behind Clinton while she was talking. Like this:

Of course, this isn’t really a “bright spot.” Any girl who’s ever been approached by a creepy guy who, for whatever reason, just won’t go away even after you tell him “no” knows exactly how unsettling it can feel to have someone straight-up looming behind you. A body language expert actually weighed in on Trump’s lurking and called it “playground bully” behavior, which is not great in any context, but is especially discomfiting when used to describe someone who has basically admitted to sexually assaulting women. There are some good memes, however, that point out exactly how scary it is. So, check out these memes of Donald Trump looming over Hillary Clinton that, undoubtedly, are going to be the most terrifying part of your Halloween:

Trump standing directly behind Hillary, in light of his comments bragging about sexual assault, is a bad, ominous pose for him.

6. An uncanny copmparison, tbh:
Heyyyyy Donald. Can you not lurk behind Hillary Clinton like THAT DUDE in a bar who's trying to see how drunk you are? THANK YOU.

Mr. Trump is a gentleman and respects woman? Then WHY did he continuously lurk behind Hillary Clinton like a mad psychopath? #ImWithHer
