The first official presidential debate was held on Monday night between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. For an hour and a half, the two hopeful candidates grappled over foreign and domestic policy, social views and their own ongoing scandals while many of us took appropriate sips of our drinks as we watched. The historic event was also viewed by many of EDM’s most prolific producers and DJs, several of whom took to Twitter during the debate to tweet their own thoughts and reactions.
Below, you’ll find a healthy mixture of both comedic and serious responses to the conversation that took place at Hofstra University. From AC Slater and Jauz to Rukes, Kennedy Jones and LUCA LUSH, everyone with a strong opinion about the candidates spoke up. Even The Chainsmokers chimed in, reminding their followers to register to vote regardless of their political leanings.
Check out reactions from all these and more below.

Hilary was well spoken, strategized and composed. Trump was there.

watching Trump debate is like watching a high school kid who forgot they had to do an oral presentation in class so they just try to wing it
