Twitter was quick to pick up on the volume of Donald Trump's sniffles, Lester Holt's allegedly inadequate moderation skills and Hillary Clinton's criticism of her opponent's business policies, amidst heated arguments and future promises. Could Bollywood be far behind?
Actor Rishi Kapoor told the world that he was glued to the television as the debate unfolded at Hofstra University. He was hoping for something 'sensible':
Hofstra. Watching the Presidential Debate on CNN. No screaming please just sensible talk! pic.twitter.com/Eu29GRFFHh? Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) September 27, 2016
Preity Zinta was very excited:
She soon jumped on to the GIFs bandwagon.
TV personality Mini Mathur is obviously not a Republican Party supporter:
Love how Trump refers to third world countries like they should be gased off the planet #PresidentialDebate? Mini Mathur (@minimathur) September 27, 2016
The US Presidential debate slowly but surely gathered an unprecedented number of views for any political event in the history of the country, especially as many live-streamed it online.
Whoever they're supporting, whoever's ahead, right now it's only about the debate - left, right and centre.
