IN THE WEE hours of this morning, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton faced off against one another in Hofstra University for the very first presidential debate. (Didn’t manage to stay up? Here’s what you missed.)

If you weren’t watching it with Twitter, then you weren’t doing it right.

Here are the night’s best tweets and memes.

3. “Well actually…”


4. The drinking games didn’t go so well…

5. The whole thing was reminiscent of The Office

6. And Hillary Clinton was definitely Jim Halpert

7. “Friends?”

8. Sometimes you just have to make your own fun

9. Meanwhile, this Toronto politician was inundated with tweets from Americans asking him if they could move there
