CNN anchor Jake Tapper eloquently described the first presidential debate as a “hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck.”
The reporter wasn’t the only person who felt frustrated by last night’s debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. Many celebrities took their frustration out on their social media, live-tweeting while watching.
Cardi B, who has been vocal about her political stance (she was a Bernie fan and is now a staunch supporter of Biden), posted multiple videos on her Instagram to voice her feelings about the candidates.
In one video, the rapper is seen with the anime face filter on, talking about how she was offended by Trump talking about how Joe Biden’s son Hunter struggled with a drug problem.
“I feel like that was very unnecessary especially because Joe Biden’s family has suffered through so much sh*t especially because his wife and one of his kids died in a car accident. You know what I’m saying?” the rapper asked her 76 million Instagram followers.
She continued, “So you can imagine what kind of pain and what kind of s***t his son had to turn to for comfort, just like so many Americans have had to turn to for comforting…So it was such a low blow from Trump…It was so unnecessary and gross.”
Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, posted a video on Twitter where he looks straight into the camera with a straight face and says, “This is how you do it President Trump, I condemn White Supremacy.”
Mark Ruffalo, who has always been outspoken politically, voiced his concerns on Twitter. The actor wrote, “Donald showed he has no leadership qualities, he has shown that all he can do is denigrate and lie. You can’t debate insanity. We have a lot coming our way and we need a leader who can hold it together under pressure not blow his stack. #TrumpUnhinged #BidenCalm #Debate2020.”
The Marvel actor also retweeted posts about the debate, including many that called out the President for telling the neo-Nazi organization the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by.”
Brie Larson also was feeling the stress of the debate and reminded her followers that there’s nothing wrong with changing the channel.
