The day of the first Democratic Presidential Debates, Republican Presidential front-runner Donald Trump announced that, thanks to an alleged popular demand, he would be live tweeting the whole "boring two hours."

At the request of many, and even though I expect it to be a very boring two hours, I will be covering the Democrat Debate live on twitter!

A few minutes before the debates began, Trump kicked off his debate analysis with a nice introductory tweet about his goals as a political commentator, as well as his opinion on the three new additions to the pool of Democratic candidates.

We will all have fun and hopefully learn something tonight. I will shoot straight and call it as I see it, both the good and the bad. Enjoy!

Should be interesting but too bad the three guys at《1% will be taking up so much time - but who knows, maybe a star will be born (unlikely)

The "three guys" he is presumably referring to are former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb.

Trump also took the time to tell his followers about changes he would make to American society should he be elected president.

Get rid of all of these commercials. #DemDebate

Then he questioned the Democrats' ability to frighten Russian President and renowned bear hunter Vladimir Putin with their debating skills.

Putin is not feeling too nervous or scared. #DemDebate

Judging from this comment and his Chafee-bashing retweets, he is not a fan of the Rhode Island Governor.

Can anyone imagine Chafee as president? No way.

Nor O'Malley either.

O'Malley, as former Mayor of Baltimore, has very little chance.

After the debate's first break, the real estate mogul took the time to criticize the candidates on stage for lacking what Trump himself has heaps of: candidness.

All are very scripted and rehearsed, two (at least) should not be on the stage.

Though the billionaire commended Sen. Bernie Sanders for an unspecified "good move," he said he doesn't think any of the candidates have true star quality.

Sorry, there is no STAR on the stage tonight!

Toward the end of the debate Trump tapped into the politics part of political commentator.

Notice that illegal immigrants will be given ObamaCare and free college tuition but nothing has been mentioned about our VETERANS #DemDebate
