Donald Trump Live Tweets Democratic Debate: Check Out His Most Outrageous Tweets!

Donald Trump may not have been on stage last night during the Democratic Debate 2015, but he made sure that the spotlight was on him via Twitter, Time Magazine reports. Donald Trump live tweeted the debate, and it was just as outrageous as you probably expect.

Trump kicked off the night by tweeting, “At the request of many, and even though I expect it to be a very boring two hours, I will be covering the Democrat Debate live on twitter!”

But the leading Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, didn’t seem to fazed by the fact that Trump was live tweeting.

“.@realDonaldTrump Glad you’ll be watching. It’s going to be ‘huge,'” she tweeted.

It was indeed a “huge night” for Donald Trump on Twitter. His tweets covered a wide range of topics, from Black Lives Matter to taking personal jabs at the Democratic candidates on stage. Here are some of his most retweeted tweets during the Democratic Debate (#demdebate).

Donald didn’t just tweet during the debate, he also retweeted a lot of his followers tweets, some of whom claimed that they joined Twitter just to read his tweets during The Democratic Debate.

Trump’s Twitter performance during the Democratic debate is probably a good warmup for his SNL hosting gig on November 7.

NBC News announced on Tuesday that Trump would be hosting SNL almost a year to the day before the 2016 presidential elections. The elections will be held on November 8, 2016. Trump last hosted the long running live comedic sketch show in April 2004.

During his 2004 appearance on SNL, Donald Trump boasted about how much of a ratings machine he was and plugged his then-new show, The Apprentice.

“After just one season, I am about to become the highest-paid television personality in America,” he said in his SNL monologue in 2004. “And as everyone in this room knows, ‘highest-paid’ means ‘best.'”

Little did we know that would become the Donald Trump presidential platform.

By the end of the debate, Donald Trump Twitter account had gained 60,000 followers, Vocative reports. Bernie Sanders gained 28,000 followers, while Hillary Clinton gained 10,000 followers. Clinton wasn’t the candidate with the smallest Twitter growth though; Martin O’Malley gained 2,000 followers.

This isn’t the first time that a candidate from the opposing party has live tweeted a debate. Bernie Sanders did the same thing during the last GOP debate, as this article in the Huffington Post notes

Bernie Sanders used the hashtag #DebatewithBernie to draw attention to his tweets. Sanders criticized Republican candidates like Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, and Donald Trump for their stance on Planned Parenthood, their willingness to go to war, and the topics that were hardly getting any attention, like income equality and climate change.

Although he tried to steal the show via Twitter, Donald Trump wasn’t the only highlight about the Democratic Debate.

Anderson Cooper got a lot of praise for how he moderated the debate, asking pointed questions that forced each Democratic presidential hopeful to address the issues. As CNN Money reports, throughout the debate Cooper would say “With all due respect…” and “You didn’t answer the question” to keep the candidates on track.

At one point, Cooper asked Clinton about her reported tendency to flip-flop on her political opinions based on the people she’s addressing. When, the Democratic frontrunner started to drift to talking about pay raises for the middle, Anderson interrupted her.

“With all due respect, the question is really about political expediency,” he said. “Do you change your political identity based on who you’re talking to?”

Bernie Sanders didn’t get off the hook with Anderson Cooper either. On the question of the use of military force, Sanders waffled and did not give a definitive answer. But Cooper checked him on that.

“Sen. Sanders, you didn’t answer the question. When would you authorize force?” he said.

According to the article in CNN Money, Cooper did get some criticism for giving more time to leading candidates than the others.

The New York Times reports that Clinton and Sanders received the most time to speak, with 30 minutes each. This just mirrors their performance in the polls. O’Malley and Webb got about 15 minutes each, while Chafee received 10 minutes.
