At the beginning of the debate, Trump apologized for lewd remarks he made during a 2005 video that surfaced last week. He called it "locker room talk" before pivoting to terrorism and "bad things happening" in the world. John Locher/AP

Also sitting in the audience were, from left, Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathy Shelton. Less than two hours before the debate, those three -- along with Paula Jones -- appeared in a Trump news conference to speak out against the Clintons. Willey, Broaddrick and Jones have previously accused former President Bill Clinton of inappropriate sexual behavior. Shelton's rapist was defended by Hillary Clinton as a young lawyer. That man was convicted of a lesser charge and served 10 months in jail. Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images
