said it was not a good idea to go after miss universe at 3:00 in the morning and ask people to look up sex tapes. but i thought he might be listening to mike pence. visit knowledge meant that he and mike pence had not even discussed an important foreign policy issue and more portly, him and saying, i have not talked to him and i disagree with him. there was a guest in the room. p in the room. gas >> and of republicans, the main question is what donald trump meltdown completely and would we haven't completed conflagration tomorrow. do have the sense cap has survived the debate? do you feel he is done enough? you will still be the person who hillary clinton is running against a week from now? >> i think he is definitely going to be the person she is running against. the expectations were so low for donald trump. especially on top of the weekend he had. lot of republicans
11:01 pm
abandoning him. i do not think he stuck that tonight with the stunt people before the debate began. i think the stunt was very bad. >> you are seeing the clintons getting ready to make their departure from the debate. you can see bill clinton about to jump in that car and exit the debate site. senator, my question for you is whether you had a sense, and i think there are a lot of republicans here who are critical about him. he had a difficult time the first 30 minutes, but after that he seemed to exhibit greater preparation for the debate than he did the previous debate. he seemed to have done some degree of research. to sidneyeferences blumenthal, a variety of places where you can get a sense he had been studying. did you think so? >> once again, very low expectations, very low bar. i will admit he said the same
11:02 pm
phrase over hand over hand over again but he did throw in a new research points but at several points he failed. he did not understand the chinese deal. clearly, she had a better grasp of energy policy. foreign policy, he showed weakness. another widespread perception was secretary clinton was on defense for a decent check the night in the middle of the debate. do you think she held up relatively well which is taking tough questions from the audience, the moderators, and donald trump? >> i think she held up very well. i think there really was a contrast. i think people forget that donald trump, whereupon used to donald trump saying the same things over and over again. i'm great, i am wonderful, i will get along with m pidgin, i will defeat isis. it will be great. i don't think people realize a little substance there is. it is like we don't realize he does not say much. not say much tonight. >> would you think will be talking about tomorrow?
11:03 pm
you have been in a fair amount of debates. usually there are two or three things we chew over for the next 24-48 hours. what will we be doing the about an aftermath of this debate? >> the defiant, desperate, tacky attempt at a stunt before the debate. putting the women in the front row. trying to somehow unsettle hillary clinton. i think people will be talking about that. i do not think that helps them with republicans, by the way, that are really cautious about having anything to do it this guy now. it was also it was -- tough, offensive, and the whole thing about him not even talking to michael pants. -- two mike pence. think there is a chance missouri will be in play? >> missouri is in play. >> missouri is in play at the
11:04 pm
presidential level? >> it is. >> thank you for being here. >> we're going to cut to mark halperin right now. if we can get him in the spin room. he is out there trying to get some guests. what do you think about, john, in terms of what the senator was just saying? do you think hillary did enough tonight, particularly i was surprised that she really did not ram at home on women, especially the videos. john: i don't think hillary was at her best tonight. again, these moments, curiously theatrical. people were still distracted by donald trump sniffling. i thought it was worse tonight than it was in the first debate. i think the notion of trump claiming he was going to throw his opponent in jail if he became president of the united
11:05 pm
states was a pretty dramatic moment. i believe with mark elsewhere in the spin room. mark halperin out there. man, partner. he usually doesn't have a trouble talking. >> it does not upset me to see her, it disgusts me. but yeah. he is such a bio person. -- vile such a bio peson. >> who got you out tonight? >> i think it was breitbart to give me the invitation. [indiscernible] >> an extraordinary moment in the spin room to have someone who is coming here to accuse the
11:06 pm
former president of the united states of sexual assault. she has done it in the past, but to come and do it as part of the republican nominee campaign is extraordinary. emotional for anyone watching to see the kind of accusations being made. started making accusations about physical acts versus donald trump's words. it is quite something. the spin. trump in room here. there is a lot emotion hand and intensity here. let me go back to you. john: that was market alpern in the spin room -- that was mark halperin and the spin room talking to when either broderick. to --king to one knee talking to juanita' >> i don't think trump did
11:07 pm
anything tonight to separate himself from the comments made on friday. he was more prepared tonight. he had positions on the obamacare. he actually had the beginnings of a foreign policy on something like syria. he was able to talk about taxes. it was a more policy-centric debate in the middle lower than people expected. there was nothing that really would have gotten independent voters but he was not think car crash that people expected. he will be able to move on tomorrow. question that looms is the question of mike pence. trump'sht tonight of performance was bad enough, the question was, would mike pence big -- stick with him. bondsy accounts, transfer was poor but not disastrous. but he threw mike pence under the bus. from mikesome report
11:08 pm
pence's camp that they are apocalyptic. lactic -- apoplectic. what does mike pence do tomorrow morning when he wakes up and thinks about the way he was treated by donald trump in front 79, 80 million people? >> i want to remind you the moment we are referring to is when donald trump basically said in an incredibly decisive way, i do not even talk to mike pence about syria and i disagree with what he said as a policy. that was quite a moment i think and we will have to watch whether he can move forward. has already been morally censured about this video and how he can move or word. >> we saw the dismissal of mike
11:09 pm
pence is a running mate and we saw donald trump take a position on syria which is at odds with the addition that mike pence put forward at the vice presidential debate. defending the sure sign onstage? we will get a lot of discussion tomorrow because it is obviously a huge foreign policy issue and an issue on which donald trump contradicted his running mate and it will be an issue with a lot of republicans. >> the top-tweeted moment of the debate was the exchange on syria. halperin. back, mark >> the top-tweeted moment in the debate and the most tweeted debate in history, we put so much emphasis on the first debate and how big the audience would be but all the debate over the weekend, at least among twitter followers, this was a bigger debate than the first debate. peoplealked about trump when he went to the spin room.
11:10 pm
their attitude is, they won the debate. i think they are right, they live to fight another day. he put the brakes on what could've been effectively the end of the campaign. >> i will ask you this, we thought the trump performance was not horrible, but he did throw mike pence under the bus. what does mike pence do tomorrow? >> he will probably have a hard-to-heart with donald trump about that. he has put up with a lot more than that. >> megan murphy, mark halperin, and me, we would like to say thank you to twitter, our exclusive partner with tonight's debate. be sure to tune into to our show "with all due respect," tomorrow. i say from megan, mark, me, sayonara. ♪ >> tonight's presidential debate

11:19 pm
the debate even started i was in a room with him as well as his traveling press corps watching him with three of bill clinton's accusers and he went politically nuclear against the clinton machine. he pushed back, he fought back, he brought up numerous accounts of their infidelity as well as accusations against the clintons that have well-storied over the years and he went after them hard. the word i am heard from the trump campaign people i'm speaking with those they feel hillary clinton clinton was quote unquote rattled. of course, whether or not this does anything to stop the bleeding, to stop the republicans who are denounced they jumped in to see over the 48 hours remains to be seen by clearly donald trump showing tonight he is not going to back down and he is not jumping out of this race. >> right, kevin. in hong kong as well, when you look at the currency market, one of the parameters we use. markets determining whether
