Donald Trump And Hillary Clinton On Stage Was The Stuff Of Karaoke Dreams

Their song choice, however, was the topic of much... debate.

Posted on

On Sunday around 9 pm, candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton assumed positions on stage that looked like, yes, a classic karaoke duet!

That 2am karaoke duet at the local dive bar. #Debate

It would be one of America's most epic karaoke nights, and people were ready for it.

"You're the one that I want" "You're the one I want" "Oooh ooh ooooooh" "Honey" #debate #karaoke

I guess if people will watch a watermelon explode, they'll watch anything, right?

But, as with all debates, there were disagreements over what the two rivals might have chosen for their song.

Doing "I got you babe" for Debate Karaoke was just weird.

Some thought they'd flip through the book and choose a modern classic... But as we know, Beyoncé is more of a Hillary gal. So unlikely.
