The real winner of the first presidential debate was Twitter. As the debate seemingly changed nothing, celebrities took to Twitter to celebrate and criticize the ninety minute shit show. So we thought a look at the best tweets would be a good way for those of you who missed the proceedings to stay informed. Look at it this way, you only missed the most watched debate in American history.

Hillary Clinton belongs in the White House. Donald Trump belongs on my show.

Good thing someone was taking notes on Trump's broken speech.

Republicans pushing for the the things that really matter.... *sigh*

And a few more stray observations.
One of these people looks like a president. The other looks like he'd dance way too close to you at a wedding.

Hillary: "I am prepared, educated and informed."
Donald: "I had something super mean to say but I am keeping it to myself!" #Debates2016
