Between hurling insults at each other, both Joe Biden and Donald Trump were allowed the time to sway undecided voters.

But behind the scenes, things might have been just as bad.

Eagle-eyes viewers have spotted a very "awkward" interaction between Donald Trump and his wife in which she appears to have ripped her hand away from his grip. And of course, everyone's doing their best to explain what must have happened.

Last night, Donald Trump and Joe Biden met for the last presidential debate less than 2 weeks before election day.

After months of mounting tensions, Trump and his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, faced each other for one last time.

The debate took place at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee...

And was moderated by NBC News correspondent, Kristen Welker.

It was crucial for both Trump and Biden...

Because, though Biden has a significant lead in the national polls, the gap between him and Trump is gradually reducing in the battleground states.

However, the evening ran a little differently from the other debates.

Remember the first presidential debate, wherein Trump and Biden incessantly spoke over and interrupted one another?

It was utterly shambolic, wasn't it?

via: Getty

And the second debate fared no better.

Following President Trump's coronavirus diagnosis, a virtual debate was pitched...

But, of course, the president refused point-blank to do this. So, in a historic first, the second debate was canceled and both candidates went on to attend their own town hall events - on different channels, at the exact same time. 

And, in order for the third event to actually take place (and in an orderly manner...)

The Commission on Presidential Debates came up with a new rule.

The ninety-minute debate was divided into fifteen-minute segments...

via: Getty

And at the start of each new topic, each candidate had 2 minutes of uninterrupted time during which the opponent’s microphone was firmly switched off.

Both campaigns agreed to the new rule...

via: Getty

And, as has been done before, the moderator ensured that equal amounts of time were given to both the speakers over the course of the ninety minutes.

Of course, anticipations for this crucial event were high...

via: Getty

Mainly because this is Trump's last chance to salvage the little reputation he has left.

But, almost instantly...

via: Getty

The president seemed to be struggling with the debate's new "no interruptions" rule.

I mean, we all knew this would happen, didn't we?

via: Getty

Admittedly, Trump allowed Biden to have his say (though this may be thanks to his muted microphone).

But his face really said it all.

via: Getty

Trump doesn't have the best poker face in the world and gave away his struggle with silence last night.

And, of course, people were quick to point it out online.

Twitter users have been laughing at Trump's "hilarious" attempt at keeping quiet as Biden speaks.

Facial expressions aside, over the course of the debate, several topics were covered.

Including the coronavirus pandemic, the environment, immigration, social issues, and foreign policy.

The exchanges were sharp, to say the least.

And some even pointed out how much of a calmer performance Trump gave compared to the previous debate.

But it seems as though the drama had already unfolded even before the candidates got to their podiums.

via: Getty

So, we all know that before the event begins, both of the nominees stand by the side with their spouses for some quick photographs, and all seemed to be going well.

Biden and his wife, Jill, exchanged hugs as she walked off...

However, it was a different story on the other side of the room.

Eagle-eyed viewers had spotted the most awkward interaction between Trump and his wife.

via: Twitter

Despite the fact that the couple were stood holding hands, as Melania walks away, she tears her hand out of the grip of her husband's. But according to the video, it seems as though he wanted to continue to hold it.

She doesn't even look back at him before striding off the stage.

via: Twitter

And people couldn't help but point out how unaffectionate their relationship seems... Yikes.

Here's the full video so you can have a look for yourselves:
