Celebrities Weigh In on Debate With Tweets About Horses and Bayonets
This week's final debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney before the Nov. 6 election was focused on foreign policy, which a majority of Americans may not think is as relatable as social or national economic issues. But as with "Big Bird" from the first presidential debate and "binders full of women" from the second, the final debate had a viral zinger (and possible Halloween costume) of its own: "horses and bayonets."
In response to Romney's comments about the navy, Obama said, "You mention the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military has changed." In mere minutes, the hashtag #horsesandbayonets was trending on Twitter, with celebrities also chiming in on the popular phrase and other issues from the debate. We've rounded up some of the funniest tweets from famous men and women (and Sesame Street characters) about the final presidential debate — check them out now!
