7 Funny Women Respond to Trump's Debate Performance

7-funny-women-respond-to-donald-trumps-debate-performance

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:

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.

Silverman and Girls creator Lena Dunham were not the only ones to notice Trump's allergies (to the truth?). Comedian Chelsea Handler felt nostalgic. 

Out comedian Fortune Feimster hit the nail on the head.

Comedian Paula Poundstone commented on the overall lack of control moderator Lester Holt seemed to have over Donald Trump, in particular. 

Ellen DeGeneres didn't get too political but did urge viewers to register to vote.
