The Internet Reacts To The First Presidential Debate Between Hillary Clinton And Donald Trump
Bathe in the numbing glow of the internet and try to forget that Donald Trump might actually become President.
After endless sniping, jabbing and vicious subtweeting, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have finally gone squared-off in person during the first US presidential debate.
Taking place at Hofstra University in New York, topics up for discussion ranged from cyber security to the fight against ISIS and the fraught state of race relations across the country. The personal scandals that have plagued both candidates were also raised, such as Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns and Clinton’s use of a private email server while Secretary of State.
We’ll leave the in-depth analysis of who actually won the debate for another time. Instead, let’s take a moment to bathe in in the gentle, numbing glow of the internet, which was on hand to help as laugh, if only to keep us from crying.

"To be semi-exact" should be printed on the side of the Trump campaign bus

Hillary is listening to Trump with the same smile Khaleesi had right before she burned the Khals to the ground.

It was like Hermione debating Crabbe and/or Goyle. Or maybe just one of those screaming goats. Either way, my girl won #debatenight

"I HAVE THE RIGHT TEMPERAMENT TO BE PRESIDENT," screamed the red-faced orange man at the woman. #Debate
