(Newser) – The prime-time debate has been heavy on policy, but the biggest applause line of the night has gone to Carly Fiorina after she was asked to respond to Donald Trump's insult about her face. "I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said," Fiorina said, per Talking Points Memo. Trump, who previously tried to explain away the insult by saying he was talking about her "persona," didn't strike back. "I think she's got a beautiful face and I think she's a very beautiful woman," Trump replied. Earlier, however, he took aim at Rand Paul's appearance in an exchange with the senator, notes Mediaite. “I never attacked him on his looks, and believe me there is plenty of subject matter right there.” (Read more Donald Trump stories.)
