By now, you have read the think pieces dissecting debate night last night. You can read a couple of my favorite serious articles here and here. I present you a bit of a different perspective in keeping with the 'Just Mindy' vibe. Here are a few of my favorite memes from last night.
Fox News actually tried to get the candidates to play Survivor and write down who they would "vote off the island."— Citizen Free Press (@CitizenFreePres) September 28, 2023
The candidates looked at Dana Perino like she was an insane person. pic.twitter.com/rL5YD4rrdM
They even tried to end the night with a reality show 'vote off the island' moment. That was embarrassing.
Dana Perino: You have 15 seconds to write on a piece of paper which candidate you’d vote off the island.— American Girl (@AmericanGi37401) September 28, 2023
Ron DeSantis was not having it and shut that down right away.
I will vote for Vivek if he channels that Danny Zuko hair and breaks into song w/the uncensored version of Greased Lightning pic.twitter.com/MEvvX3y59a— Helena Handbasket 🐊 (@hobbes16) September 28, 2023
Vivek’s hair looks like he’s about to say, “Deadass ONG, capitalism is dank af and imma bout to glow up this country.” pic.twitter.com/ighDcKZNfN— Prison Mitch (@MidnightMitch) September 28, 2023
can someone do one of those things where every one hundred likes they make Vivek's hair 10 percent bigger pic.twitter.com/8mNjMbuG0u— Sonny Bunch (@SonnyBunch) September 28, 2023
Every 1000 likes I’ll make his hair taller pic.twitter.com/VVKfvewIoH— Dr. Richard Harambe (@Richard_Harambe) September 28, 2023
Vivek's massive hair was a treasure trove of good meme content.
Christie literally did the meme with the Donald Duck line 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/ZMxthhNENp— Greg Price (@greg_price11) September 28, 2023
How many times did Chris Christie practice his Donald Duck speech in the mirror this morning? pic.twitter.com/q1dywWKJvD— Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) September 28, 2023
Christie having a solid moment but ending it with his "Donald Duck" line. pic.twitter.com/sf4wNKQgqn— Matt Whitlock (@mattdizwhitlock) September 28, 2023
Chris Christie's newly minted moniker for Donald Trump also drew some attention. Since Trump 'ducked' last night's debate, Christie thought this nickname would be a hit. The jury is still out on that.
Mike Pence: "I've been sleeping with a teacher for 38 years." pic.twitter.com/JJ4IXd29RZ— Mostly Peaceful Memes (@MostlyPeacefull) September 28, 2023
Hope y’all are ready for some Mike Pence memes because that’s what’s on the docket for today pic.twitter.com/YEe2HAYK0C— Trust Fund Terry (@trustfundterry) September 28, 2023
Sigh. Mike Pence tries to be funny. The jokes never land.
Of course, there had to be a joke or two about Tim Scott's 'imaginary' girlfriend. By the way, Rubin is kidding in this tweet. That is actually the beloved Karol Markowicz, best selling conservative author. She is very happily married to someone who is not Tim Scott.
Tim Scott was pretty feisty tonight...— Tim Young (@TimRunsHisMouth) September 28, 2023
I wonder what his totally real girlfriend who absolutely exists and just happens to never be around due to scheduling issues thinks about that.
Has anyone seen Tim Scott's girlfriend?— Ken (@itskenssoapbox) September 28, 2023

She doesn't go here, ok!
HALEY: "Do your homework, Tim, because Obama bought those curtains."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) September 28, 2023
SCOTT: "Did you send them back?"
HALEY: "It's the State Department. Did you send them back? You're the one who works in Congress.
SCOTT: "You hung them up."
HALEY: "They were there before I showed up."
Obviously, the debate had to address the serious issues and Tim Scott and Nikki Haley did not disappoint.
"90% of the resources that we send over to Ukraine, it's guaranteed! It's a loan!" pic.twitter.com/fCtFx6obVJ— ForAmerica (@ForAmerica) September 28, 2023
During the Ukraine discussion, Tim Scott clarified the assistance was a loan. Let's be real.
My entire timeline basically agrees…. pic.twitter.com/QxGbRMGm5E— AG (@AGHamilton29) September 28, 2023
Honestly, the debate was a mess and devolved into people screaming over one another way too much. The only redeeming factor is the laughs Twitter can bring. I hope you enjoyed these as much as I did. You have to laugh or you will cry.
