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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
