It's no secret Donald Trump is not a ladies' man. He has insulted countless women, such as Arianna Huffington, whom he's called a "dummy" and a "liberal clown," and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake, whom he called "a joke."
While many viewers spent the first presidential debate cringing in fear, terrified of what a Trump presidency might mean for women's reproductive rights and the wage gap, female entertainers and comedians on Twitter gave their best lines to the public.
Saturday Night Live cast member Leslie Jones, who was recently cyberbullied by members of the alt-right, led by gay troll and Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulos, spoke for many when she said:
I'm so confused. He is just talking and talking saying nothing omg help it's like having a convo at a party you want to run from!

Comedian Sarah Silverman, who was once a Bernie Sanders supporter, took to referring to Trump as "baby," and not in the romantic way. At one point Trump had some nasal issues going on, causing him to snort and sniffle.
To be president of this country you need tremendous STABINA. Blow your nose Baby #Debates2016

This sniffle is the new Durst burp

Silverman and Girls creator Lena Dunham were not the only ones to notice Trump's allergies (to the truth?). Comedian Chelsea Handler felt nostalgic.
Trump’s sniffle makes me miss Hillary’s cough. #Debates

Out comedian Fortune Feimster hit the nail on the head.
Everyone is saying Trump has the sniffles. Is he dying? Oh, that's right. We only accuse women of being weak when they have pneumonia.

Comedian Paula Poundstone commented on the overall lack of control moderator Lester Holt seemed to have over Donald Trump, in particular.
#Debate Trump just tried to send Lester to his room.

Ellen DeGeneres didn't get too political but did urge viewers to register to vote.
They say 100M people are watching these #debates. If you’re interested enough to watch, I hope you’re interested enough to vote. We need you
