Now that we’ve talked about the serious issues that were discussed (or avoided) in last night’s debate, let’s be honest. In this era of soundbites and social media, what the people who didn’t watch will hear are the memes that are generated from the match-up. Immediately after the debate was concluded, here is some of the best from Twitter.
A couple of #NeverTrump’ers were pretty despondent.
The most uneven debate so far. Trump a complete meltdown. He might have lost the last 2 women in America still voting for him

It’s completely heartbreaking to see Hillary Clinton so outclass a Republican nominee across 3 debates

Some otherwise famous people weighed in with wisdom.
Well, there you have it. A highly intelligent, experienced woman just debated a giant orange Twitter egg. Your move, America. #debate

Brilliant closing, Don: “vote for her and you get 4 more years of Obama” – a president with a 55% approval rating.

Yes…some memes were created.
To the nasty women and bad hombres, you won this debate. Trump is toast. #Debate

In addition, there is a hashtag explosion riffing on this:
Trump’s foreign policy answers sound like a book report from a teenager who hasn’t read the book. “Oh, the grapes! They had so much wrath!”

Ed Mazza at Huffington Post has gathered some of the best responses. Here are a few examples:
“Juliet. Such a nasty woman. She made Romeo kill himself. And believe me he could have done better. Look at her.” #TrumpBookReport

“Madeleine. Lives in a house in Paris. Great city. We have tremendous property there. I’ll be dating her in 10 years” #Trumpbookreport

I guess it should come as no surprise that some of the best Trump debate analysis comes in 140 character sound bites.
