Last night’s Democratic Debate was held in Charleston, South Carolina, a state won by Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential Election.
Debate participants included Sen. Bernie Sanders, former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Tom Steyer.
There was a lot of back-and-forth during the few hours on stage, and a lot of verbal attacks were aimed at Democratic front-runner Bernie Sanders.
Even Biden threw some shade after the debate was over.
As it always does, the Internet erupted with highlights, jokes, and comments.

The easiest way to win? Don’t show up.
Tulsi Gabbard won last night’s debate by not being there. #DemDebate

CBS: What do you think of Cuba?
Bernie: It’s a dictatorship
CBS: But you said good things about Cuba
Bernie: They have high literacy—still a dictatorship
CBS: So you like Cuba
Bernie: No, they’re a dictatorship
CBS: I’m sorry this is just confusing us
