Trump used the phrase “big league” during the debate, but it sounded like “bigly.”
“We have millions of people that did it the right way. They’re on line. They’re waiting. We’re going to speed up the process, big league, because it’s very inefficient,” Trump said. “But they’re on line and they’re waiting to become citizens.”
Viewers at home jumped onto search engines to find out whether the word is real and not something the GOP presidential candidate just made up.
“Bigly” is in fact a word, an adjective that means large.
Social media went nuts over the word.

#Bigly has to be part of the drinking game.— Anish Shroff (@AnishESPN) October 20, 2016
Body language expert Tanya Reiman watched the debate and noted how the two presidential candidates interacted with each other.
Reiman called the debate's lack of a pre-event handshake "kind of sad," saying: "That is the proper etiquette. We have never seen this when candidates dislike each other so much they won’t even touch hands.”
She added: “These two really do truly hate each other now."
