Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump went head to head in the second presidential debate of 2016.

They took the stage in St. Louis at Washington University.

The debate began with questions over recent tapes released revealing Trump making lewd comments about women in 2005.

"This was locker room talk. I'm not proud of it. I apologize to my family, I apologize to the American people. Certainly, I'm not proud of it, but this is locker room talk," Trump said. 

Clinton countered that Trump's words reflect who he truly is.

"He has said that video doesn't represent who he his - but I think it's clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is." Clinton said. 

And more of Oklahoma's republicans have responded after that leaked audio. 

Senator Jim Inhofe released a statement on his Facebook page and compared Trump's comments with Clinton's past actions.    

He said what Trump said was disgusting, but that Clinton was being a hypocrite. 

"The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton to criticize Trump's past is equally disturbing as her personal failings involved expensive, well-coordinated campaigns to bully and degrade women," Inhofe wrote. 

He went on to say that the election is ultimately about which candidate presents the best policies.

In a statement released Sunday night, Gov. Mary Fallin said Trump's comments were "unacceptable."

"Both of our nation's Presidential candidates are very flawed and have made mistakes," Fallin wrote. "I am disappointed and offended by the comments made by Mr Trump 11 years ago. His comments about women were totally unacceptable."
