The first of two Democrats debate was considered by some as a flop, and Hollywood celebs took to Twitter to vent their frustration.
Besides being called “boring,” the Democrat debate was also plagued by “amateur hour” sound issues, confusion and chaos.

Washington Times reported that about an hour into Democrats’ first televised presidential debates, involving 10 of the party’s two dozen candidates — the second batch scheduled to speak on Thursday evening — President Donald Trump tweeted this: “BORING.”
Actually, “BORING” is a bit of a misnomer. There were some spirited moments.
For instance — and this may not qualify as spirited per se, but definitely exciting, leaning toward mysterious — one of the night’s nagger of a question, for at least the better part of the first hour, was this: Who’s the bald guy?
Well, spoiler alert: John Delaney.
Yep. The guy from Maryland. The guy from Maryland who once upon a time served as a congressman.
Favorite moments of the night:
-Klobuchar bragging about her Uncle Dick
-Beto pretending to be Spanish
-Castro claiming that dudes can get pregnant
-NBC forgetting how microphones work
-Bald guy getting yelled at every time he tried to speak

Celebrities, who have been touting this moment for months were also not impressed, and some appeared quite worried about their chances in 2020.
Actor Billy Eichner was apparently disappointed by all 10 Democrats on the stage Wednesday night, and declared that he’s “voting for Hillary” in a now-deleted tweet.
Voting for Hillary.

Breitbart reported that Hollywood was largely disappointed during the first Democratic presidential debate on Wednesday night, with reaction spanning from pillory to praise to panic.
“I already heard six candidates tonight that can see themselves out, permanently,” actress Amber Tamblyn fumed, sounding unenthused with over half of the Democratic candidates on the debate stage.

Not a promising start. Nobody came close to answering the first question, a good one: With 70% saying they like the economy, shld we make radical changes to it? Only interchangable chunks from the stump speeches. You're going to have to answer that at some point, guess not tonite

why don't we just have running color commentary from the booth and a scoreboard and throw instant replay in there too to make it all complete …? https://t.co/dldzwriC0c

I’ll start watching the debates when we’ve whittled it down to the top 100 candidates.

Candidates – please stop yelling. We’re all on the same side.

So, ok, most of them are saying something good on most issues. Well prepared sound bytes that they believe are true. But the one question on everyone’s mind while watching this is: WHO IS GOING TO CRUSH TRUMP? And the 2nd question: WHO’S FOR US AND NOT WALL ST? Whom do you think?
