Tuesday night saw the first of three presidential debates that aim to give Americans more insight on each of the two party’s nominees for the upcoming election.
While debate moderator Chris Wallace — a veteran of NBC, ABC, and Fox News — had his hands full, the internet was abuzz with reactions to the debate as it was unfolding in front of the world.
You can watch the first presidential debate in its entirety here.
