Rachel Maddow and Steve Schmidt discuss Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Gary Johnson.
I also think it's safe to say Hillary won
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton finally squared off in a debate on Monday night at Hofstra University, and Twitter seems to think that Clinton was victorious.
Pundits were quick to point out that Clinton appeared healthy, which should quiet rumors of not being fit to serve as president. The debate, moderated by NBC’s Lester Holt, was the first of three before the presidential election.
Trump was fact-checked numerous times by various media organizations throughout the 90-minute event, specifically being called out for claiming Clinton has fought ISIS her entire life and denying that he once said China started global warming.
“There was only one future President on that stage tonight and her name is Hillary,” one person tweeted. Another viewers wrote, “SAD performance by Trump. By performance I mean when he showed up and was himself. Hillary made history and made us proud.”
Another user felt strongly that Clinton dominated, tweeting, “She murdered him and torched the body.”
Neither candidate did anything too outlandish and the second debate should be another highly anticipated event. While most voters probably feel that whomever they liked prior to the debate was victorious, Twitter seems to feel that Clinton came out on top.
