Debate drinking game: Drink, just drink that’s the game.
Watching the two old guys from The Muppet Show debate.

In a scene reminiscent of the point in V for Vendetta when the whole country realizes what a farce everything is simultaneously, comedians and regular humans alike came together during the first US televised presidential debate and found solace in madness. They posted on Facebook, on Twitter, on Instagram – and they had us laughing all night.
Enjoy some of our favourite jokes from comedians and humans who watched the debate.
I see we've reached the "Everyone laughing at the farce on TV simultaneously" scene in V for Vendetta. #TikTok
As is sort of our deal, we’ll start with #TeamCanada – who had a particularly strong night out:
The way I see it, there should be two takeaways from last nights debate1) The Presidency2) The Democratic Nomination
I know that everyone is up in arms about the debate last night but I do want to say it’s very on brand for America, so from a marketing standpoint it was a success.
you ain't ever been to the burbsDon't ever come to the burbs'cause you ain't understand the burbsAnd stay the fuck out of the burbsDJ Sleepy Joe.
That wasn’t a debate, that was a Facebook back and forth comment thread…
There's gonna be THREE debates??? Just give me the Rona instead
This debate is like a Legion with an open bar.????
Trump like an angry GF; can't stay on topic in an argument.
But, as it is their country after all, the Yanks had the most scathing outlook on the prospects to ‘lead’ the nation
I've already gone thru 2 gallons of Hydroxychloroquine
This “Grumpy Old Men” remake sucks. #Debates2020
Wow…I've seen more civil debate on Jerry Springer
That debate makes me long for the 4th quarter of a Falcons game.
If any white supremacists were undecided, I think Trump nailed down those votes.
Chris Wallace is that poor substitute teacher that keeps getting spit wads every time he turns around
Trump is my biggest nightmare….A heckler who became president
After all was said in done, the prevailing despair was palpable… what else can you do but laugh at it?
The next debate should be moderated by a family therapist.

"This was a train wreck."No, train wrecks are an event we want to stop and look at.
That debate had all the class of Roe V. Wade in a coat hanger match at the next Wrestlemania
In hindsight we should've had Joe Rogan moderate this shitshow #Debates2020
Debate is over and, ironically, I may actually need to shoot bleach into my system to feel clean again.#Debates2020
To live in a country of 328 million and have only these two to choose from — what an embarrassment.
