Round two of the first Democratic debates Thursday night kicked off with NBC’s moderators Lester Holt and Savannah Guthrie pressing the candidates about student debt relief policies, but soon escalated to direct jabs against President Donald Trump and the candidates talking over each other as they set out to distinguish themselves.

Both Trump and conservative commentators were following along.

Trump once again claimed that he was unimpressed with the Democrats’ performance:

Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted that the Dems onstage had “gone totally nuts”:

Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren made a racist debate observation:

Conservative TV host Bill O’Reilly thought that Pete Buttigieg won the debate:

Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk delighted in the Mueller report not being brought up:

Radio host Hugh Hewitt took great pleasure in witnessing Sen. Kamala Harris’ “food fight” line. “America does not want a food fight, we want to know how we put food on their table,” she said.

Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro and Town Hall political editor Guy Benson took issue with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s air time and stance on Medicare For All:

Shapiro even added “grades” to his debate analysis a mere 36 minutes in:

Former Arkansas governor-turned-Fox News pundit Mike Huckabee managed to go Biblical as he weighed in on the Democrats talking over each other:

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain had a “better” first impression of round two of the Democratic debate Thursday night than the previous night.
