"Hillary Clinton was very...poiseful."

On an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, a bunch of unsuspecting people gave their opinions about what happened during Monday night's presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump — only they were asked hours BEFORE the debate actually happened.

The debate took place Monday night. On Monday afternoon, Kimmel's team went out on the street to ask people what they thought of "last night's" debate even though it hadn't actually happened yet.

But that didn't stop people from giving their two cents about Trump and Clinton's performances during the debate.


This woman was most impressed that Clinton managed to do pull-ups on the pull-up bar that Trump brought out during the debate. "I mean come on, I can barely do a pull-up," she said. "She proved him wrong!"

This man was totally not surprised when Trump yelled "Liar liar, pantsuit on fire!" at Clinton during the debate. "Wasn't that expected though?" he said. "I saw it on social media."
