Second Presidential Debate: The last question was everything

- On a night filled with negative banter and downright nastiness, one guy found a way to turn the tone of the second presidential debate around. Karl Becker got the microphone for the last question of the night, and then everything changed. 

In a question directed at both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton-- who didn't shake hands at the start of the debate-- Becker asked this: "Regardless of the current rhetoric, would either of you name one positive thing that you respect in one another?"

And in that moment, the room erupted with applause. Then, both candidates answered the question. Clinton went first, complimenting her opponent on his children. When it was Trump's turn, he said Clinton is a fighter who doesn't give up.
 
Social media immediately reacted, cheering Becker on for ending the debate on a positive note.
