For the first time in US history a moderator won a presidential debate. For many, it was a tragedy yesterday to watch the presidential debate between the incumbent US President Donald Trump and the former Vice President under Obama, Joe Biden. While Trump tried again and again to distract from the topic and depict Biden badly and interrupt him, Biden remained calm and called the citizens directly to vote. There’s been a storm of Tweets on Twitter ever since. We’ve picked out the best Tweets for the debate!
Um, I guess I’ll vote for the guy who didn’t tell white supremacists to stand by?

Here’s the big takeaway from the debate:
Trump was asked to condemn white supremacists, and not only did he refuse to do so, he told them to “stand back and stand by.”
You know, as if he is their leader.
That’s the takeaway.

Listening to our President downplay this pandemic which killed both my parents is fucking infuriating.

I know it happened a couple minutes ago which feels like a lifetime ago in this debate, but: Biden looking directly at the camera and saying his son had a drug problem like many do and he loves him anyway was a really powerful moment that will resonate and stick with people.
