Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday night participated in the third and last presidential debate at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. This was the last chance of either candidate to make a closing argument before millions of voters.

Twitter users watching the debate reacted with wit, exasperation, disbelief and support for the candidate of their choice, and finally, celebrated the end of this year’s debates. Users also praised Chris Wallace, a Fox news host for his moderation of the debate.

Here are some of the most interesting tweets from the night:

On the other hand, angry Trump fans sided with their candidate of choice, attacking Clinton over a variety of issues.

Twitter users reacted with characteristic humour and outrage over Trump’s comments on abortion.

Replying to a question, the Republican candidate had said, “If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month you can take the baby, and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Based on what she’s saying, and based on where she’s going and where she’s been, you can take the baby, and rip the baby out of the womb in the ninth month, only the final day. And that’s not acceptable.”

Twitter blew up, responding with sarcasm over Trump’s lack of understanding of the abortion process.

Several users came out in praise of Chris Wallace, the host of a Sunday show on Fox news, who was the moderator of the debate.

And finally, everybody seemed relieved that the 90-minute debate was finally over.
