Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden on Tuesday sparred in the first of the three scheduled presidential debates ahead of elections (and here are the key takeaways). And on social media, people shared photos of the various drinking games they had lined up for the debate.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the 90-minute showdown occurred with a limited and socially distanced in-person audience. The debate began at 9 pm EDT at the Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.
Keeping up with a tradition that is as longstanding as the idea of the presidential debate, many Americans geared up with their own drinking and bingo games to play during the debate. Many shared photos and videos of their games.
Here are some examples:
