Presidential Debate Reactions: Celebs Sound Off on Obama-Romney Part 2

by at . Comments

Barack Obama showed up for his first presidential debate of 2012 last night in Hempstead, N.Y., to the delight of his many celebrity supporters on Twitter.

Unfortunately, this was his second presidential debate with Mitt Romney, who cleaned his clock the first time and wasn't exactly backing down Tuesday.

Here were some of the many celebrity Twitter reactions, in 140 characters or less:

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: That debate was better than a real housewives reunion.

Mary J. Blige: "Great Job on debate Mr. President! I never lost faith in u!"

Jill Biden: Lucky for me, "Jeremy" was one of my drinking game words. #Debate

Chris Rock: CNN Reports that Obama will end the debate by holding up Bin Laden's head w/ his birth certificate in Bin Laden's mouth. #debate #debates

Sarah Palin: We had a really good presidential debate tonight, and I hope every American is energized to get out and vote in three weeks. I also just want to give a quick thank you to everyone who supported Bristol & Mark. I know how much they appreciated the support. Now Bristol can head home just in time to enjoy Alaska's new fallen snow!

Eva Longoria: Mitt Romney just completely lied on his stance on contraception - he would put your boss between women and their doctors. And: Landslide victory for Obama. We saw one President for all Americans on that stage tonight, Barack Obama. #Forward

Sarah Silverman: Then give more people the opportunity to BE a two parent family & make gay marriage legal u s--tty person

Jared Leto: Please vote obama so Romney doesn't make us all go to sunday school. And: @JohnnyBNerdy not as simple as that Johnny. But I'm happy to pay more taxes to help all.

David Arquette: "I went to the Olympics"  - Mitt Romney

Bill Maher: If the tea party is still voting for this immigrant loving, non tax cutting, birth control loving protectionist they care only about winning

Joy Behar: Romney's plan for immigrants is to make them so miserable that they will beg him to self deport #current2012

Patton Oswalt: This isn't so bad for Romney. He can easily win this without single moms, immigrants, the middle class or all women. #debate

Sandra Bernhard: please do not bring the religious crap into it, you went to France as a missionary you are so detached from what people feel or need in this country women students working class people you have contempt for those struggling 47%

Russell Simmons: great night for Barack! Tomorrow morning, let's get to work! 21 days to win this election! #TeamObama

Michael Moore: Best line of the night: Obama: "Can you say that again, Candy?" (when Candy told Romney he wasn't telling the truth about O and Libya)

Josh Malina: "Don't forget to vote" was a weird closer. Why don't you just add "... you fucking idiots?" #MocktheVote

Ivanka Trump: Both the #President and #Governor ended strongly. What did you think of the #debate.#Election2012

Eliza Dushku: Nice finish #POTUS !

Who won the second presidential debate?

Who will you vote for November 6?


Each time you far left wing people display a political article it is always biased against Republicans. If anything good comes out of this it will hopefully be that all Republicans will quit supporting your networks, your advertising and any celeb that takes a left Wing stance! Now that would be labeled success.


Such an unbiased article, lol...
Whatta joke it is when gossip sites try to seem political.


Obama spoke and was extremely cocky. Obama spoke for much longer than Romney but Obama has once again not given anywhere near the explanation as Romney has given as far as his plans for the future. I don't know of one person personally that can stomach another 4 years from the under qualified socialist.


Why is it so hard to find a celebrity who thinks? Why is it so hard to find a celebrity who realizes that thinking is not their forte and who therefore shuts up? Why do so many Americans listen to these bloody fools?


For all of you people who think Obama is doing such a good job. Have you taken time to ask yourself what exactly has he done to help the American people....
Oh yea I forgot... he's raised gas prices, taxes, unemployment, and the DEFICIENT. Go ahead a keep voting for Obama and don't cry when we are all out of work.

@ Sandi

I believe you mean "deficit" not deficient. And actually the president has little to do with lowering gas prices. The president doesn't have nearly as much power as people seem to believe. Although, unemployment has actually gone down since Obama took office. If you're going to talk shit about our president, the least you could do is actually know what you're talking about. Obama 2012, because I don't want Romney to send women back to the dark ages and leave our country burning when he leaves office.

@ Samantha

Nicely said Samantha!
DEFICIENT?? Really.. my god.. LOL


Hey hollywood gossip, just an FYI, Jill Biden's twitter that u referenced is a parody account. Initially I thought it was really her, read recently its not which explains some of her tweets. While they're hilarious & sarcastic, I often wondered how her tweets didn't cause controversy, now I know bc it's not her!


Why can't these "celebrities" mind their own business and do what they are overpaid to do...."act". Stop dispensing their views on politics, religion, values and morals. Too bad they don't get paid like the middle class...they would actually have to sweat for a living.


Please Mr. Obama give civil service personnel a raise. If Congress, Senate can get one why not us we all work for the same person. The government.
