The debate night that will be discussed for generations in Political Science classes - and Women's Studies seminars - ended with Republican Donald Trump landing more punches than Democrat Hillary Clinton, and successfully deflecting attention successfully away from a two-day-old crisis about graphic sexual language that threatened to derail his White House bid. In the first debate at Hofstra University 13 days earlier, Clinton sat back and let Trump hang himself. But on Sunday her quiet patience gave him room to roam and dominate. Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who has been among Trump's most forceful defenders, summed up the real estate tycoon's performance with two words in the post-debate spin room: 'home run.' 'I think the momentum is going to switch, like that,' Giuliani told DailyMail.com, snapping his fingers. 'It was one of the biggest victories in a presidential debate, ever.' Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta called Trump 'desperate' and called him 'incoherent' in policy discussions. Neither candidate appeared in the hall where reporters waited to grill them. For Clinton, that was par for the course.

The father can be seen curled up on the floor, slowly rocking backwards and forwards but completely oblivious to what is going on around him.

A fly landed on Hillary Clinton's face during the second Presidential debate, sending Twitter into a frenzy of memes and jokes. Many of them highlighted the fact Mrs Clinton did not flinch, with some going as far as to suggest she was a robot like those in the TV series Westworld. Most of the memes about the fly's appearance at Washington University in St. Louis were poking fun at the Democratic nominee. One suggested the fly was remotely controlled by Trump's children (left). Another joked about the fly later being murdered in a fake suicide (top right) and one Trump supporter claimed the fly was trying to fix Mrs Clinton's 'broken brain' (bottom right).
'Bill raped me and Hillary threatened me!' Trump unveils FOUR Clinton 'sex victims' and sits them feet away from her at debate - to cast BOTH of them as abusers
Donald Trump took the gloves off 90 minutes before Sunday night's debate against Hillary Clinton, holding a meeting with four ghosts from Bill Clintons' sexual past - and letting a handful of unsympathetic reporters in to hear them speak. Trump introduced his coalition of the willing - Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathy Shelton and Paula Jones - in St. Louis as a press pool snapped shutters and reporters shouted questions about a new audio recording of Trump saying vulgar things about women 11 years ago. Broaddrick, an Arkansas nursing home administrator who has accused Bill Clinton of forcibly raping her when he was the state's attorney general, said that 'actions speak louder than words. Mr. Trump may have said some bad words, but Bill Clinton raped me. And Hillary Clinton threatened me. I don't think there's any comparison.'

But the footage belongs to media company MGM. Producer Mark Burnett (right), the creator of The Apprentice, is the president of MGM Television and Digital Group. He reports to MGM CEO Gary Barber.

ATMs too tall to reach, staircases to nowhere and a VERY inappropriate swimming pool: The worst building fails revealed
Phallic shaped swimming pool (bottom left), a staircase to nowhere (bottom right) and a bridge that doesn't (top left) meet in the middle. Architectural mishaps often occur when design flaws are not picked up in the initial planning phases.

His mother told MailOnline she could no longer bear to see him suffering.

The football team no one wants to play! High school students steamroller three rivals by 170-0 thanks to their mammoth 300lb players
With six players tipping the scales at more than 250lb, one high school football team had no problem steamrollering their last three opponents by 170-0. So it's hardly surprising that no one wants to go up against The Wildcats from Archbishop Murphy High School (AMHS) in Washington. The mammoth American football players are viewed as so intimidating that their next three opponents have forfeited the games because of concerns about safety. South Whidbey, Sultan and Granite Falls have all refused to face the colossal team after parents and teachers voiced fears about injuries.
Inside Angelina Jolie's new neighborhood that is so exclusive you can't even see it on Google Street View: Actress moves into Hidden Hills, where she will count Kimye, JLo and Drake as her neighbors
Angelina Jolie has moved into a mansion in the one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the world - which is so private you can't even see it on Google Street View. The actress, 41, moved her six children from Malibu into a new rental costing $30,000 a month in Hidden Hills, a gated community in Los Angeles County, California. There, her new neighbors read like a who's who of Hollywood - including Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Miley Cyrus, Drake and Jennifer Lopez. Jolie's new pad boasts more than 8,000 square feet of living space as well as two beach-entry pools, a cascading waterfall and an 800 square foot cabana. But it's the privacy that makes property in Hidden Hills so sought after by celebrities - and likely the reason Jolie, who recently made headlines after filing for divorce from husband Brad Pitt, picked it.
