For the last question in the second presidential debate on Sunday night, when candidates were asked to say something nice about their opponent, Hillary Clinton said she respected Donald Trump’s children.

It’s the second time in as many days that Melania, who called her husband’s comments “unacceptable and offensive,” has been pulled into the headlines for what has been perceived as a silent protest.
Update 7:08am CT, Oct. 10: According to CBS News reporter Sopan Deb, “this was not intentional.”
