1) In a clear attempt to pander to women voters, Hillary Clinton pulled down her pantsuit to reveal that she does, in fact, have a vagina.


2) Donald Trump revealed that the secret to a successful business is not paying any taxes™ .

3) Gary Johnson could be found scalping tickets in a muscle shirt outside the venue.

4) Hillary Clinton shimmied, which we can only assume was to the beat of Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off”. Swift and Clinton have formed an alliance, as both women are infamous lying snakes.

5) In a surprising show of restraint, Donald Trump did not bring up Monica Lewinsky and instead chose to refer to the 20-year-old scandal in interviews immediately following the debate. He also cleverly hid the words “your husband is a slut” in a cough.

6) Clinton revealed her team’s latest product, Warm, Kind, and Almost Likable Clinton™ , delighting and confusing audiences across the globe.

7) Embarrassingly enough, Jill Stein showed up ready to debate, apparently unaware of her own irrelevance. “I can’t believe I cleansed my crystals for nothing,” said Stein.

8) During the debate, President Barack Obama smoked a joint and attended service at his favorite mosque, reportedly having zero fucks left.

9) Both seeking minority votes, the candidates made references to their illegitimate mixed children they are very proud of.

10) After being interrupted 436 times, Lester Holt, the debate’s moderator, shed one single tear for America.
