President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden set Twitter ablaze on Thursday night during the final presidential debate — but despite several political hot takes, the event didn’t appear to change many minds. 

With Election Day less than two weeks away, the showdown offered both major party standard bearers their last chance to make their case in front of a massive national audience watching and listening on TV, radio and online. 

Throughout the evening everything from Biden’s bizarre reference to Hitler to the coronavirus pandemic and healthcare sparked online dialogue. Moderator Kristen Welker of NBC News was widely praised as for her keeping things under control and might actually been the night’s biggest winner.

Liberal actress-turned-activist Alyssa Milano was among the Biden supporters who had a completely different takeaway than Woods. 

Liberal CNN’s audience preferred Biden, while the NRA declared Trump the winner. MSNBC’s anti-Trump “Morning Joe” namesake Joe Scarborough said “most people thought the debate was a wash.”
