The first presidential debate was anything but what some people would call well, presidential. Ninety minutes of heckling, flying accusations, and what could be compared to childish insults left Americans who viewed the debate confused, bewildered, and somewhat embarrassed.

As serious as the 2020 presidential election is, I couldn't help but notice some of the comical moments of last night's debate. Here are nine trending Tweets I saw about the presidential debate that I couldn't help but laugh at.

Editor's Note: Everything written in this listicle has been written light-heartedly with the goal to make readers laugh. This is not a serious or fact-driven news piece.

I couldn't agree more

I have to say, watching President Trump and Joe Biden go at it definitely made me want to break out the popcorn. I found myself unable to look away as the two candidates squabbled over each other, each trying to come out on top.

I wonder why?

Confused maybe, but annoyed? Nooo. How could any citizen be annoyed when the two people chosen to represent them and the future of their country argue like children at recess? President Trump and Joe Biden may have had trouble giving the other a whole two minutes to talk, but I'm sure they can run a country.

A moment of silence for the transcribers

I don't even know where to begin. To transcribe a debate is difficult, but to transcribe a presidential debate were the candidates talk over each other must be a nightmare. O brave transcribers, my heart goes out to you as you start your long unwinding journey through the words and phrases of our potential future president.

Do you blame him?

Not going to lie, this Tweet is on a whole other level. Although Chris Wallace struggled to keep calm and moderate on, I have to say hats off to him for doing his best. The fact that he didn't give up on trying to control the rants and spurs of the two candidates gives me one last sliver of hope for America. #Wallace2024 am I right?

Wait, did he just say clown?​ 🤡

This clip of Joe Biden calling President Trump a "clown" sure is one for the books. I wonder if the retired Vice President realized he would single-handedly make the clown emoji become the next new trend overnight. 🤡

Fact-checking, fact-checking and more fact-checking



Fact-checking sure does sound exhausting, but you know what sounds even more exhausting? Saying this three times fast, I hope they fact-check the final fact-checkers before fully publishing the fact-checked data.

"That was a sh*t show."

It's not too often that news anchors get explicit on live TV, but then again it's not too often that debate like this one goes down. This clip of various news anchors talking about how the debate went later in the night had me rolling. It looks like for once almost every news channel has the same take on what happened.

Smackdown alert! 

Everyone after watching this comment... 👁️ 👄 👁️

So there you have it, nine Tweets I saw about the first Presidential debate. I can't wait to see what lively Twitter content will come from the next two.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
