Best Republican Tweets From the Democratic Debate
Twitter went crazy during last night’s Democratic debate, as everyone had something to say about the candidates and their plans for the country. In fact, many Republican candidates felt compelled to respond to what their Democratic counterparts were saying on stage. Mike Huckabee and Lindsey Grahm even live-tweeted their comments as the debate unfolded. By the end of the night, most of the Republican candidates got their fair share of jabs in on the Democrats, particularly when it came to Hillary Clinton.
Here’s a quick roundup of the most interesting tweets from Republicans:

This one is pretty clearly a shot at Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee, whose polling averages are below one percent nationally.
Bobby Jindal also chimed in after Anderson Cooper asked Bernie Sanders about his identity as a “Democratic Socialist.”
Mike Huckabee had several things to say throughout the debate–he had a couple bad and off-color jokes:
But later it got even weirder:
Racism exists because we have a sin problem in America, not a skin problem. #DemDebate

And finally, Lindsey Grahm just gave up:
