hillary clinton versus donald trump. who packed the biggest political punches and who won the night? >> you called it the gold standard. >> well, i -- >> you called it the gold standard of trade deals. >> and you know what -- >> you said it's the ft >> and then you heard what i said about it, and all of a sudden, you were against it. >> well, donald, i know you live in your own reality, but that is not the facts. >> overwhelming reaction from social media and the morning's headlines, straight ahead. plus, it's described as the worst bombing syria has seen in five years. and an overwhelming moment and tribute to a fallen teammate. "early today" starts right now. good morning. i'm frances rivera. >> and i'm ayman mohyeldin.
>> i called these visine mornings, a little less sleep. >> and the nation wakes up this morning taking stock of the first head-to-head debate between hillary clinton and donald trump. and headlines across the country say it all. for example, the "washington post" -- attacks fly as clinton puts trump on the defensive in the debate. >> and from "usa today" -- the return of fiery trump. "associated press" -- clinton gets under trump's debate. >> and "daily news," face of the nation, trump covers himself in bumbling blabber. >> and temperament heart of the clinton/trump debate. >> an overnight poll shows clinton as the clear winner, 62%-27%, as both battled fiercely over taxes, terror and race. >> you called it the gold standard. >> well, i -- >> you called it the gold standard of trade deals. you said it's the finest deal
about it, and all of a sudden, you were against it. >> well, donald, i know you live in your own reality, but that is not the facts. donald was one of the people who rooted for the housing crisis. he said back in 2016, gee, i hope it does collapse, because then i can go in and buy some and make some money. well, it did collapse. >> that's called business, by the way. we have no leadership. and honestly, that starts with secretary clinton. >> all right, you have two minutes on the same question to defend tax increases on the wealthiest americans. et of this evening i'm going to be blamed for everything that's ever happened. >> why not? >> why not? yeah, why not? >> but the most contentious moments in the debate came between not the candidates, but between them and the moderator, nbc's lester holt. >> stop-and-frisk was ruled unconstitutional in new york because it largely singled out black and hispanic young -- >> no, you're wrong.
>> mr. trump, a lot of these are judgment questions. you had supported the war in iraq before the invasion. what makes your -- >> i did not support a war in iraq. >> 2002 -- >> that is a mainstream media nonsense. i was against -- wait a minute -- i was against the war in iraq, just so you put -- >> the record shows otherwise. >> the record does not show that. >> trump told nbc he believed holt did "a great job." however, it was trump's response on his facebook's top moment of the night. >> my question was -- >> no, no, you didn't hear what i said. >> -- why is your judgment any different than mrs. clinton's? >> well, i have much better judgment than she does, no question about it. i also have a much better temperament than she has, you know? i have a much better -- she spent -- let me tell you -- >> here was one of clinton's most talked about moments, following trump for his previous comments on women. >> she doesn't have the look,
to stamina, but this is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs and someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers -- >> i never said that. >> -- who has said women don't deserve equal pay unless they do as good a job as men. >> somebody who works as hard as the fact-checkers. they had a busy night after several months. nbc counted some 20 lies and half-truths throughout said millions of jobs will be lost when ford moves its car manufacturing to mexico. united autoworkers union tweeted -- fact check, ford is not moving jobs out of michigan. our agreement services agreements for effective plants. and then trump said murders spiked across new york city and that stop-and-frisk helped tamp down violent crime in the city,
decreased nearly 97% in new york city since 2011. crime, murder and shootings have decreased significantly during the same period. and when trump originally said he opposed the war in iraq, which politifact says is false. twitter is celebrating last night's face-off as the most tweeted debate in history. and for a breakdown of how the event played out on social media, we go to nbc's gigi stone woods. gigi? >> thank you, ayman and frances. you're absolutely right, it is nowff debate in history. and the two candidates as polarizing and as headline-making as trump and clinton, it is easy to see why. according to google, these are the highest moments of search interest for both candidates with interest spiking when trump referred to climate change and when clinton steered viewers to her website, which had live fact-checking. then there was trump's stop-and-frisk moment, his response on cyber attacks and his answer when it came to the war in iraq. on facebook, the top issue of
economy and crime. here is twitter's top tweeted moments from the 90-minute debate. trump's temperament response, his comments on stop-and-frisk and his exchange with clinton over isis all making the top three. ayman, frances? >> gigi, thank you very much. and while the debate ended with each candidate promising to accept the eventual winner, after the debate, trump walked into the debate spin ro telling the crowd he handily won the night, vowing to square off against clinton next month, while clinton followed up her performance by stopping by a local watch party, urging supporters to step up their game ahead of election day. nbc's tracie potts is live from the debate site at hofstra university. tracie, good morning to you. how are the candidates following up the performances today? >> reporter: so, frances, it's back to the battlegrounds and it's back to the base. last night was all about trying to get those undecided voters in the middle, but today with these
