The very first debate of the basic election season is now history, but a lot went down Monday evening, on-stage, off-stage, and just before and right after the debate, which you either didn’t see or notice. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump traded blows on tax plans, Trump’s lack of publicly released tax returns, ISIS, racial healing, policing, jobs, and sexism. Certain, it was a total shit-storm, but all in all, a pretty predictable one particular. The intriguing stuff lies in what went on behind the scenes at the presidential debate.

Who won, you ask? Many are saying Clinton, who remained calm, stated policy concepts, and hit Trump where the media’s gone comparatively easy (on his shady tax evasions and organization practices, for instance). Trump is saying Trump won, Rudy Giuliani is sweaty and angry, and it’s to be noticed whether or not final evening will have an effect on polling in any way. But till we know, content yourself with exploring what went into the debate, what happened afterward, and what it’s totally feasible you missed although watching.

There have been no bathroom breaks, some suspect Trump was snorting coke all through (Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert, and Howard Dean all think it is completely attainable), and here’s everything else you might or may possibly not have noticed.
