Five Democratic presidential hopefuls will go toe to toe in the party’s first debate of the primary season on Tuesday night. Yes, five; beside Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders there are apparently at least three other Democrats running for president: Former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb. The debate, which airs at 8:30 p.m. on CNN, will be the first of only six Democratic debates, so you better pay close attention. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun while doing it. Although the notion of a Trump-less debate may seem strange and tedious to us now, Republican front-runner Donald Trump—due to popular demand—has promised to fill any potential entertainment void and live-tweet the whole thing. And he’s not the only off-screen personality worth watching.
Below are live tweets from top pundits and politicos. On the left-hand side of the screen you’ll see the liberal tweets. On the right-hand side you’ll get the conservative ones. Watch the spinning ensue in real time!
