President Obama and Mitt Romney clashed over foreign policy in their third and final debate, and once again Twitter was on hand to grade the bout in real time.
Aziz Ansari, Alec Baldwin, Michael Moore and Dane Cook weighed in with the best laugh lines of the night and helped turn Obama's analogy about the navy being like "horses and bayonets" into an instant meme. Celebrity responses tended to be liberal, as show business tends to be a left-leaning enterprise and Clint Eastwood has yet to discover Twitter.
But Donald Trump was on hand to take the fight to the president and famously undecided voter Lindsay Lohan was even able to forget her latest tabloid scandal and tweet out 140 characters to congratulate the candidates. Talk about America coming together!
Here's a look at the best celebrity Twitter reactions to the debate:
The Pentagon just turned to Monday Night Football.
"Hypothetical question, let's say Israel calls you up and they say 'we need all your hummus.' What's your move?" #BetterDebateQuestions
Mitt is all over the place. Why doesn't he just whip out a flag, pull on a drum majorette outfit and sing America the Beautiful.
So relieved Obama showed up tonight
OK, one last try: We have fewer Andrews Sisters and Ritz Brothers than we did in 1944. So glad we're done with THAT!
I dated a girl with tight sanctions. #debate
Romney for gender equality in Middle East--not so much with equal pay and women's rights at home. #debate
There is nothing specific about a plan to "go after the bad guys" #debate2012
Ok, I tried! That Smug... Lyin'... Caught in his own shit & STILL Just LYING!! Just looking to pad his resume!
If 'attacking' is calling mitt Romney on his shifting positions at EVERY TURN then please, attack.
Dear Romnesia -are your investments through Bain Capital in China consistent with your political position on China ?
@MittRomney looks much calmer, and Obama should stop nodding his head backwards and forward.
