Presidential debate: Leslie Jones live-tweeted
Dozens of celebrities live-tweeted the second presidential debate on Sunday night — the most tweeted-about debate of all time according to Twitter — but none were as committed as Leslie Jones.
After promising to live-tweet the event on Sunday, Jones posted more than 35 tweets, including numerous videos, of her reactions to the debate, which was the most contentious event of the election season thus far.
That tension started immediately, when opponents Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton did not shake hands before the debate. “Check this out, she won’t even touch this motherf—er,” Jones said in a video. “She won’t even touch him. I am not touching you, you piece of sh–.”
Jones did not hide her disdain for Trump throughout the night, calling him “f—ing jerk,” a “big dummy dumb-dumb,” a “liar,” and also questioning his debate preparation. “It sound like he gets all his info from Wikipedia!” she tweeted at one point. “Like he is so f—ing uninformed it’s embarrassing!! This is our fault! F—ING VOTE!!”
In a video, the SNL star said the debate was making her angry, “because I cannot believe this is where the f— we are right now. Look at this sh–.”
