Hillary Clinton #DemDebate Memes Add Levity To The Second Democratic Debate
The second Democratic debate was a relatively somber affair on Saturday night. Three candidates — Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O'Malley — took the stage at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa to discuss issues ranging from foreign policy and the economy to their own disagreements with each other. Though an incredibly serious debate, social media was still filled with humor to lighten the mood of a rather heavy event that may stand as one of the most focused debate of the election cycles. Hillary Clinton #DemDebate memes not only provided a bit of levity but showed the many high points of her debate performance.
Particular highlights from the debate itself include Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders further reiterating that the media should be less focused on Clinton's email scandal and more invested in pressing issues affecting the country. Likewise, hearing the former Secretary of State retelling of a particularly difficult political moment that prepared her for president was especially moving. It was the killing of Osama Bin Laden that Clinton cited as a moment that was not only arduous but has better prepared her to serve as commander in chief.
