One woman in the audience has truly stolen the show.
It was an explosive one...President Donald Trump's Miami town-hall forum this evening was far from dull, to say the least.
Now, the event was originally scheduled for October 9th...
via: GettyBut was hastily canceled over coronavirus fears.
Subsequently, today's date, October 15th, was selected for the second debate...
via: GettyBut it was established almost instantly that tonight's event was to be held virtually following Trump's positive COVID test.
However, President Trump wasn't too keen on this idea...
And he demanded that the debate be restored to its original, in-person format, before adding that he would refuse to take part in any virtual debate entirely.

Meanwhile, the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, was putting together his own plan to appear in an ABC News town hall in Philadelphia...
via: GettyWhich is the very thing we have been watching this evening.
But, never one to miss out on an opportunity to attack his opponent, Trump decided to take part in NBC's Miami town hall event...
via: GettyAt the exact same time as Biden's ABC appearance.
Trump's NBC forum kicked off in Miami with Savannah Guthrie.
via: Twitter / NBC NewsAnd it didn't take long for things to become very heated.
The President was firm in "denouncing white supremacy" when asked about it...
via: Twitter / NBC NewsAnd it's clear it struck a nerve as he began viciously interrupting Guthrie when she was questioning him on these sensitive topics.
We all know that Trump came under fire in the last debate after he failed to denounce white supremacists and the Proud Boys...
via: Twitter / GOPSo of course it was bound to be brought up tonight... and immediately, Trump was on the defense.
He was also grilled on his recent retweets containing false conspiracy theories...
To which he defended himself by degrading Guthrie by saying she was "so cute." Not cool, Mr. President.
Trump sneered, “So cute” at Savannah Guthrie, just in case women forgot how much contempt he holds them in. https://t.co/uDXQwFCgLj— Sarah Reese Jones (@Sarah Reese Jones)1602813827.0
But it seems that Trump still has some very loyal supporters...
via: GettyAnd some seem to be a little bit too loyal.
During the Q&A part of the forum, in which potential voters were able to directly speak to the President, a woman named Paulette was pulled up from the crowd.
via: TwitterShe seemed to be a little bit giddy to be on TV, but it turns out that it was just because she was in the presence of such a "handsome man."
Paulette, who was dazing at Trump, said:
via: Twitter"Good evening, Mr. President! I have to say, you have a great smile!"
Trump seemed smitten and thanked the besotted woman...
via: TwitterBut the internet certainly didn't agree.
People were creeped out, to say the least!
And it was all very awkward and uncomfortable to watch.
Imagine having seen so few people in your life that you think Donald Trump is handsome. https://t.co/vWphYVYhXm— Stacey Pulwer (@Stacey Pulwer)1602811161.0
Is this woman okay?Well, that is what many people are now wondering!
Was it really necessary, though?
Many feel that Paulette's childish swooning is totally irrelevant during a Presidential Debate... especially one that is so tense, too!
@NBCNews Meanwhile, @JoeBiden is talking about criminal reform, renewable energy, the need for bipartisan consensus… https://t.co/aOuIB2ayX7— John Thanks the Phoencians (@John Thanks the Phoencians)1602810742.0
And there was another Trump follower who shook up the internet.
This lady who sat behind him and nodded emphatically - at everything he said.
