It’s not often that we’re able to witness love blossom on live television. I’m talking, of course, about Donald Trump taking the stage for the second presidential debate, and that same debate chair taking his heart.

It happened right before our very eyes, and some of you probably didn’t even notice. Well, then it’s a good thing I’m here to recap it for you.
