The Best Twitter Reactions to Last Night’s Debate
Arguably, one of the most fun and exciting parts about any debate is keeping up with Twitter where people are all fired up and blasting their opinions into the dark void that is the Internet, hoping that someone out there finds them relatable enough for a generous retweet.
But with this debate, we all really feel slightly hopeless, and Twitter at this point has become a comforting happy place. Just knowing you’re not the only one finding this debate outlandish and fucking ridiculous is nice.
So here’s a list of Twitter’s best reactions to the debate, which pretty much summarizes what we were all feeling last night.

Dear God, the words law & order shouldn’t strike so much fear in my heart as a law abiding citizen but I am so damn scared of Donald Trump

A lot of people are saying Trump is on coke, which is ridiculous. People on cocaine love to talk about their specific plans for the future.

Hillary Clinton belongs in the White House. Donald Trump belongs on my show.

This is probably my personal fave of the night (ya know, because Jenna-fucking-Friedman took over our Twitter last night):
Stop calling her “secretary” you misogynistic dick. #DebateNight
