The election season is finally drawing closer to its end, with less than a month left before decision time on November 8. On Sunday night (Oct. 9), millions of viewers tuned into the second presidential debate between Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Though many Americans focused on the candidates’ responses during the town-hall-style Q&A, the Internet waited anxiously for the night’s mostly perfectly meme-able moments, flooding Twitter feeds with funny captions and re-purposed photos from the event.
Check out the best memes from the presidential town hall debate below.
The world meets Ken Bone
Internet stardom is pretty easily attainable, as recently learned by Ken Bone — the man who stole the spotlight when he stepped to the mic during the town hall debate to ask: “What steps will your energy policy take to meet our energy needs while at the same time remaining environmentally friendly and minimizing job layoffs?” The Internet immediately turned Bone, clad in a bright red sweater, into the newest Twitter sensation. Here rapper Hoodie Allen remixes Young Thug and Travis Scott single “Pick Up The Phone” to squeeze Ken Bone’s unique name into the lyrics.
