Democrats' Reaction to Nov. 10, 2015, Republican Debate

The Democrats Took Their Eye-Rolling to Twitter During the Republican Debate

The fourth Republican debate finally gave viewers more answers than questions about the foreign and economic policies of the eight standing presidential candidates. But as the night went on, plenty of old habits remained.

Amid interruptions from other candidates and a very frequent "time's up" bell, Jeb Bush furiously argued Donald Trump on every issue, the billionaire managed to insult the only woman on the stage, and Carly Fiorina vowed to soar through the polls (the consensus this morning is that she came in second last night) and beat her Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

The Democrats didn't waste time during the live broadcast from Milwaukee. While hilarious commentary from Twitter users flooded social media, pols including Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O'Malley took the opportunity to Twitter-bash their rivals and promote their own policies on immigration, veterans, and government spending.

Meanwhile, O'Malley remembered the military LGBT community:

Clinton took a beating from every candidate on the stage, but she still got in some pretty good burns:
