Things started off civil. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump answered Lester Holt’s questions in a calm, level-headed manner. Then we passed the 20 minute mark and Trump just couldn’t resist any longer.

This MF thinks he can just overtalk the woman and the Black guy without actually saying anything. Meanwhile, facts. #debatenight

Clearly, Carrington knows how to keep things classy. That “Black guy” is the debate moderator. Then again, we get why you might not know who he is—he’s not exactly doing a lot of moderating.
omg. poor lester. #debatenight

But it’s important to note that Trump isn’t the only one who doesn’t know how to wait his turn.

This is the most aggressive debate I've ever seen. And not in a good way. #debatenight

With the way things are going, maybe we should just listen to Jim Gaffigan.
Maybe we should try 4 years without a president? #debatenight
