In the real world that you and I live in, the general consensus is that Hillary Clinton won last night’s debate. In the world inhabited by the alt-right and its fellow travelers, Trump crushed the evil Hillary even though she had help from a secret video screen hidden in plain sight on her lectern, possibly installed by George Soros himself.
Here, highlights from the Twitter feeds of some of the better-known alt-right Trump fans (and their fellow travelers).

But of course. How could Matt possibly discuss the debate without making at least one rape joke.
Some alt-right Trump superfans were thinking beyond the election itself:
And finally, a thought from the biggest idiot of the bunch:
Why didn't Hillary Clinton announce that she was inappropriately given the debate questions – she secretly used them! Crooked Hillary.
