Whether this was your first time tuning in or you’re a seasoned political expert, there’s no denying the second presidential debate this year was an ugly one. While many were hoping for more thorough talk on the issues plaguing our country, the majority of Hillary and Donald’s time on the floor was spent hurling insults at one another or avoiding the questions raised all-together.
The debate began cold with no ceremonial handshake between the candidates, a rare display of enmity, though the pot was stirring long before either opponent took to the floor. Trump invited to the front row of the debate floor multiple women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct, an obvious passing-the-buck since his “P*ssy Tape” scandal hit the fan this past weekend.
Many regarded this debate as Trump’s final chance to win back the supporters he lost in droves due to his apparent advocating of sexual assault. Hillary seemed to be enjoying herself, perhaps a little too much, and her sh*t-eating grin the entire debate lost her some favor with on-the-fence supporters.
Though it’s largely debated who won this event, here’s what some of our favorite EDM stars had to say about it:
@steveaoki that debate was a HARD watch. Hate doesn't look good on me, so Donald Trump has me looking HAGGARD right now.

With over 35k deleted emails pretty sure Hillary's email adress is firstname.lastname@example.org

over and over i've been hearing #trump supporters trying to defend his horrifying comments caught on the access hollywood tape. one of the most common defenses, from giuliani to scott baio, is 'that's how men talk'. but no, that's not how men talk. i've spent 51 years as a man, and i've lived on tour buses and been around some gnarly men being, well, gnarly. and even at their roughest i've never heard men say things like 'i fucked her, she was married', and 'grab them by their pussy'. i've also never known men to brag about forcing themselves on women. why? because regardless of your gender it's horrifying and wrong to force yourself sexually on another person. it's even doubly horrifying and wrong to then brag about forcing yourself sexually on another person. which is why so many men i know are truly stunned and disgusted by the language on trump's tape. and why so many men i know are stunned and disgusted by the sean hannity's and giulani's of the world trying to make light of trump's disgusting words. trump wasn't saying, 'whoa, she's hot, i'd like to have sex with her'. he was bragging about forcing himself on someone and committing infidelity on his new, pregnant wife. so to the #trump supporters who are trying to make light of trump's language extolling the virtues of infidelity and sexual assault, you are wrong. none of us are surprised that trump has truly shown himself to be a virulent misogynist. he is the man who routinely referred to women as 'pigs' and 'slobs'. we're disgusted and repulsed, but not surprised. i think we're surprised that so many right wing republicans are trying to excuse trump's language as quotidian 'locker room talk'. we've turned over a rock, and under the rock are giuliani and hannity and trump and gingrich and their truly repulsive misogyny.
Well, it looks like we can tell who won’t be getting these DJs’ votes in November.
