JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

President Donald Trump wasn’t the only conservative who claimed to be “bored” during the first Democratic debate of the 2020 presidential campaign season Wednesday night.

Echoing Trump, conservative commentator Ann Coulter sarcastically tweeted Wednesday night that she was “exploding with excitement” and made a dig at Elizabeth Warren.

Conservative pundit Michelle Malkin also made a dig at Warren while commenting on how Democratic candidates like former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) and former HUD Secretary Julian Castro incorporated responses in Spanish during the debate.

Since the President was stuck on Air Force One en route to the G20 Summit and only sent out a few tweets, Trump’s sons stepped in to keep things moving.

Even former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly couldn’t be bothered to weigh in on the debate Wednesday night. He promised his “best coverage” would come in the morning.

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt thought everyone did fine.

Fox News, for its part, played things pretty straight immediately after the debate. But Fox News @ Night host Shannon Bream pointed out that the debate started with “a call right out of the gate for structural change to our government and our economy.”

The coverage got a bit more pointed as the night went on:
