The last Presidential debate is over. We can all breathe a sigh of relief that we won’t have to listen to Donald Trump whine at Hillary Clinton about her emails anymore. We can relax on the debate front but we can’t let up on the push to make sure we don’t have Trump installed as Dictator-in-Chief. We still have to vote blue.
The Twitterverse had a lot of different responses to the third debate. The Trumpites, as they are wont to do, said awful things about Hillary. After all, like Trump, like Trumpites. Their “fact checks” pretty much equate to, “Hillary said it so that means it can’t be true.” Or false. Whatever they think makes her look bad. Sad.
On the other side of the fence… okay, our side of it… we have witty and intelligent Tweets. Yeah, we can get serious now and then but Trump tends to draw the snark from us. Here are some of my favorite Tweets from Debate Night 3: The Wreckoning
These are just General comments on the sideshow:

She looks like a President, and he looks like the kind of guy the Secret Service keeps away from Presidents.#debatenight

It's always instructive to tune to the BBC's gobsmacked coverage of our election to see just how ashamed we should be. #debatenight

Trump’s ugly — and obviously impromptu — comment about immigrants inspired the hashtag #BadHombres. I bet that’s one his people wish hadn’t gone directly to his mouth, by-passing his brain entirely. The man just has no filter.
I bet those bad hombres have some good weed

"Bad Hombres" is kind of cavalier language + context Trump uses that's devoid of stature & grace, more taunting than statesmanship #Debate

So the Hangover guys couldn't get Bill Clinton but they snagged Donald Trump. That's a hell of a cameo he just delivered. #badhombres

Towards the end of the debate, Trump just could not help himself. As Hillary was speaking he called her a “nasty woman.” His obnoxious comment was picked up on right away by the Twitterhood. It’s even a T-shirt now!

"Nasty woman" for being even slightly challenged by a confident woman. What a depressing, idiotic, insecure joke of a candidate #debatenight
— Michael Edwards (@sudomichael) October 20, 2016
Many Twitterers summarized the debate for the benefit of those who did not watch:
Nasty Woman seeks Bad Hombres for election eve party on Nov. 8. Must believe in equality, reproductive freedom, democracy. No Putin puppets.
— Jon Hutson (@JonHutson) October 20, 2016
Efficient debate @realDonaldTrump! U offended hispanics "bad hombres," women "she's a nasty woman" & democracy by not accepting voters will.

NY's hottest club is #NastyWoman. It has everything. Rigged Emmys. Bad hombres. Donald rejecting two centuries of American democracy.

I hear the bathrooms in Trump Tower are being relabeled "Bad Hombres" and "Nasty Women."

Some Republicans are actually concerned about their party. These two have been outspoken about Trump’s unsuitability on Twitter and elsewhere.
To all Republican candidates:
Throw Trump under the bus. It would be good for the party and country. And it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

There was another very-hyped show that aired on Wednesday night, American Horror Story. This coincidence did confuse some…

Twitter is always a fun place to hang out during debates and other important political events. I’ve spent nearly every debate there — both GOP and Democratic primaries and general — and it’s the only way I’ve been able to keep my sanity and soberness. You hear that, Twitter? You kept me sane. How effed up is that? See you on Election Day.
