Sunday night’s debate premiered with high anticipation as Donald Trump’s latest controversial comment about being able to grab women by their genitals has landed him in the hot seat. Not only has Mr. Trump’s inappropriate comment alienated few independent voters, this comment caused a mass exodus of his fellow party members jumping ship and rescinding their endorsements.
