Jimmy Kimmel Asked People What They Thought About The Debate Before It Actually Happened

“Hillary Clinton was very…poiseful.”

1. 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.

2. This guy thought Clinton did a much better job in the debate than Trump, but he was fair to both candidates. “She made a lot more valid points but Donald Trump had his valid points as well.”

3. This guy really liked Clinton’s “poise” during the debate. “I liked her poise. She was very…poiseful.”

4. Things then took a…weird turn.

5. 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!”

I want to watch the debate this woman thought she watched, tbh.

6. This man tried to reassure those who watched Trump saying he would use nuclear weapons only if he was “real pissed off.” Don’t worry, “he’s going to have some good advisers,” the man said.

7. 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.”

You are not alone in thinking that, sir.

8. And this honest Trump admirer thought Trump “showed more leadership than expected.”

He was just being honest about it.
