It’s 2020, which means if there’s a presidential debate, there’s going to be some good tweets and memes. (Even the Vice Presidential debate had some great ones, thanks to an unexpected fly by cameo.) Here’s the funniest debate tweets and memes from the second showdown.
Tonight, after a disastrous first debate, Trump and Biden faced off again… but this time the moderator had a mute button. Supposedly.
At press time, 48 million people had already voted. If you haven’t yet, we encourage you to do so we can get things moving in a better direction. You can find the opening dates and deadlines for early voting in person and by mail here.
