>> It's just awfully good that Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.>> Because you'd be in jail.>> Secretary Clinton->>
With his campaign teetering on the brink, Donald Trump going for broke Sunday night, lashing out at Hillary Clinton, the moderators.
>> Can I just respond to that?>> And even his own running mate in the second presidential debate. As he fought to stop the bleeding from a lewd tape that caught him bragging about groping women.>> I'm not proud of it. I apologize to my family, I apologize to the American people, but this is locker room talk.
>> It represents exactly who he is.>> A flood of Republican lawmakers have withdrawn their support for Trump over the video. Reporter Emily Stevenson was at the debate in St. Louis.>> Some Republicans have said they wanted to hear a more conciliatory tone from Trump. He would've done a better job of putting the issue away if he'd seemed more contrite, if he'd given some explanation of how his character had evolved over that time period.
But just dismissing it as locker room talk and saying everybody does it is not gonna quiet the people who are saying, this is not how people talk, this is not okay.>> Go ahead.>> Trump stalking the stage and staying on the attack.>> The thing that you should be apologizing for are the 33,000 emails that you deleted.
If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation.>> Okay Donald, I know you're into big diversion tonight, anything to avoid talking about your campaign and the way it's exploding and the way Republicans are leaving you.
>> Trump also going after Bill Clinton, setting the tone before the debate in a news conference with several women who have accused him of sexual assault.>> Bill Clinton was abusive to women. Hillary Clinton attacked those same women.>> This is the kind of thing that Americans are getting pretty frustrated with.
This campaign has gotten really dirty, there were warning about whether you should let your children watch this debate and Trump is fighting back.>> But the most gasp inducing moment of the night may have been Trump's public break with running mate Mike Pence who last week called for possible military strikes against the Syrian government.
>> He and I haven't spoken and I disagree.>> But on a night that shattered debate protocol without an opening handshake, it was up to an audience member to break the tension in the closing moments by asking the candidates to name something each respected about the other.>> I respect his children.
>> She doesn't quit, she doesn't give up, I respect that.>> Clinton and Trump meet for the third and final debate, in Las Vegas on October 19th.
