Bad Hombres! Twitter Loses Its Mind Over Trump’s Newest Debate Quirk
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump went toe-to-toe Wednesday night in the third and final presidential debate. Even though we’ve been down this road before, people on social media still had plenty to say.
To start, they couldn’t help but survey the scene.
Many seemed to be a bit sick of all the election craziness.
And people had a lot to say about, well, what Trump had to say. For example, when he was discussing illegal immigration and deportation, he said: “We have some bad hombres here and we’re going to get them out.”
As you can imagine, Twitter had a field day with that one.
And of course, many were already anticipating the SNL cold open that’s sure to come.
And obviously, there’s already a parody Twitter account.
Others agreed with Trump on banning bad “ombres.” (We want them banned too, so we rounded up the best ombré hair colors — when they go low, we go highlights.)
Trump was clearly trying to insult Clinton when he called her a “nasty woman” during the debate. But it looks like the phrase has already been reclaimed on Twitter:
Some pretty famous Twitter users mined more social media gold from Clinton’s comments on Trump’s rigged election claims.
“Every time Donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims whatever it is rigged against him,” Clinton said, mentioning Trump’s protests over the FBI investigation into her emails, the court system and the Republican primary.
“There was even a time when he didn’t get an Emmy for his TV program three years in a row and he started tweeting that the Emmys were rigged,” she added.
Speaking of tweeting…
Then there was the debate over Trump’s use of the word “bigly” — or is it “big league?” Twitter just wasn’t sure.
Instagram was also alight with debate reactions, including some from celebrities like Lena Dunham and Eva Longoria.
