Presidential debate stirs up heated response on social media over job creation ideas

whitehouseThe Internet’s abuzz today with social media reactions to last night’s first presidential debate. The event spurred the “most tweeted debate ever” for Twitter according to spokesman Nick Pacilio.  Andy Stone, a spokesman for Facebook said the debate generated 73.8 million likes, posts, comments and shares.

While many comments were focused on the issues of taxes, ISIS, the economy, and crime, we found a lot of uncommon ground on the subject of job creation.

In fact, our timeline began blowing up with a bevy of mixed reactions just seconds after asking  fans who they thought would bring more jobs back to the U.S.

First came swings from Trump supporters:

comment-1

comment-2

comment-3

But then we heard from Hillary supporters:

comment-5

comment-4

comment-7                                                   The post also sparked several side conversations:

piss-on-the-poor

lockup

tie

In the end, an overwhelming majority of respondents favored Trump’s ideas for job creation. And for the undecided few, they’re leaving it up to us, and of course, the Gods.
