LOS ANGELES — Here’s what social media took away from the second presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
1. There was no Handshake.
No handshake! Press room just broke out into an extended “oooohhhh.”— Tamara Keith (@tamarakeithNPR) October 10, 2016
2. The economy…just kidding, “The Fly.”
A fly landed on Hillary as she talked about Trump. At least she wasn’t talking about no fly zones.
3. Some saw a debate, but others saw a duet when both candidates had their mics up.
4. Abraham Lincoln was name dropped.
Hillary Clinton was asked about being two faced for a comment she made to Wall Street banks about having public and private positions. Clinton brought up Lincoln in her response.
This debate is the second-worst thing that ever happened to Abraham Lincoln— Casey Newton (@CaseyNewton) October 10, 2016
5. What about jailing your opponent?
Trump threatened to investigate and jail his opponent. He’s a shirtless horse-riding pic away from being Putin. #debate— Mari Brighe (@MariBrighe) October 10, 2016
Not saying that’s true, but you can never miss an opportunity to remind the world about Putin’s finest photo shoot.
6. Who won the debate?
According to social media: Ken Bone. The man who asked the question on energy was the highest trending name on Twitter after the debate.
And that’s what makes America great.
