83 Of The Funniest Reactions To 2020’s First Presidential Debate

The first of three debates between US President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden has left a foul aftertaste for a lot of Americans and watchers worldwide. Instead of a polite and informative debate between politicians who are supposed to represent the very best the US has to offer, on Tuesday, September 29, we saw a belligerent shouting match that left a lot of Americans annoyed.

Bit of an overstatement? Not quite. According to a CBS News/YouGov post-debate poll, 69 percent of respondents said that they felt annoyed. Meanwhile, a CNN poll conducted by SSRS found that six in ten voters thought that Biden won the first debate. But plenty of people also thought that there were no real winners after Tuesday’s debacle but there was a clear loser—America.

We have collected some of the funniest reactions to the interruption-riddled debate and memes to come out of the chaos, so scroll on down, upvote your fave ones, and let us know what you thought of the Trump vs. Biden debate in the comments.

The debate wasn’t without controversy. Biden called Trump a ‘clown’ and told him to ‘shut up’; meanwhile, the President refused to condemn white supremacy and tried to walk back on his comments on Wednesday.

However, one positive thing to come out of the chaos is that the rules of the remaining two Trump vs. Biden debates will be changed. The BBC reports that the Commission on Presidential Debates said it will alter the format.

One proposed measure is to cut the microphones of the candidates if they interrupt one another. That could reduce the amount of time the candidates talk over one another and squabble instead of actually, well, debating.

The first presidential debate was watched by 65 million TV viewers. The second debate will happen on October 15 while the final bout will occur on October 22. Meanwhile, vice-presidential candidates Mike Pence and Kamala Harris will verbally spar on October 7. Can we hope for a more civil and informative debate? We hope so.

You Dont Attack Family. For me, the biggest win for Biden was that he did not bring up Trumps kids even though Trump kept attacking his son.
