While many viewers followed the fact-checkers and news outlets covering the debate for their extensive coverage of each candidate's claims towards the other, many viewers who tired of the unsubstantiated claims of the nominees took to Twitter to read some of their favorite celebrities takes on the situation unfolding on their TV screens..
The #debate was a trending topic on Oct. 19, with different points of view being brought to the table by some of the most popular entertainers in today's world.
