"Has no one at #CNN production heard of a cough button?" Rob Lowe wondered on Twitter

Hollywood was watching Tuesday night as the Republican presidential hopefuls faced off in their fifth and final debate of 2015 at The Venetian in Las Vegas.

Josh Groban, Mia Farrow, Patrick Schwarzenegger and more stars took to Twitter to offer their two cents on the candidates’ debate performance – and it seems many of them were not impressed.

Farrow summed up the debate in three choice words: “Bewildering depressing awful #GOPDebate.”

Schwarzenegger speculated about Carly Fiorina‘s motives for talking technology: “Did Apple Pay @CarlyFiorina for all those tech comments lol.”

Chrissy Teigen may or may not have reignited her Twitter war with Donald Trump:

Josh Charles yearned for a different Bush to take the main stage:

Michael Ian Black suggested some alternative nonpolitical jobs for the hopefuls:

Groban cracked some corny jokes:

And like many others, including Rob Lowe, he wondered who was coughing:

It turned out to be former neurosurgeon Ben Carson, as confirmed by his campaign.

The revelation seemed to baffle Lowe:

And as for Trump’s “good friend” and supporter Tom Brady – well, he’s staying out of it.

When asked on the Dennis and Callahan radio show whether he supports Trump for president, the Patriots quarterback replied, “Can I just stay out of this debate?”
