The Funniest Tweets from Tonight’s #GOPDebate
Following the first democratic debate that went down a few weeks back, the GOP is back at it with its third debate in Boulder, Colorado. Tonight’s debate is titled “Your Money, Your Vote” and focused on economic issues, like taxes, retirement spending and job growth.
Unlike the #DemDebate, tonight’s program includes a whopping ten candidates who will be bidding for your attention (and you know, your vote). That list includes: Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie and John Kasich. Here’s how the whole ordeal went down on social media.
In the past two Republican debates, no one said a word about equal pay. Maybe the third time's the charm? #GOPdebate

Never one to be conservative about calling someone out, Hillary started the debate with some fighting words.

Jeb Bush might be all business on top, but his footwear says otherwise.
I can't decide if I want to watch the #CNBCGOPDebate or just tap myself on the forehead with a large hammer for a few hours.

Mr. Benson made a keen observation about what time the GOP Undercard Debate took a commercial break. Is it is a coincidence that the debate is also being held in Colorado? Maybe, maybe not.
Now is as good a time as any to create some chalkboard art.
Who will dare to drink every time a moderator says "You didn't answer the question" #GOPDebate

Actor and comedian Aziz Ansari was actively tweeting throughout the evening. Our favorite tweet was definitely when he decided to share how he would handle foreign policy.
Frank Underwood is always watching, you guys.

I can't look at Carly Fiorina and think of anything but her practicing how to smile in front of a mirror for the past 3 weeks. #GOPDebate
