At the third and final debate on Wednesday night, the studio audience was told to stop laughing when Donald Trump said he had respect for women.

Yes, this is a man who said it was fine for famous men to grab women "by the pussy", has made creepy references about a 12-year-old Paris Hilton and defended himself against sexual assault allegations by saying "believe me, she would not be my first choice".

In fact, here's an exhaustive list of sexist things Donald Trump has said.

But Trump's not one to dwell on the past, or the truth... or any semblance of reality.

As Hillary Clinton pointed all this out at the debate in Las Vegas, Trump interrupted:

Nobody has more respect for women than I do. Nobody.

A while later, once the audience's chuckling had finally died down, Trump interrupted Clinton once again, as she was talking about her policy on social security.

She said: "My Social Security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald’s, assuming he can’t figure out how to get out of it. But what we want to do is replenish the Social Security Trust Fund..”

To which Trump replied:

Such a nasty woman.

Yes, well done Donald. No one has more respect for women than you...
