List Rules Vote up the most groan-worthy and pandering one-liners by Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

If there’s one thing that live 90-minute unscripted conversations in front of millions of people prove, it’s that not everyone is built for improv. The first Presidential debate of 2016 is finished and the reverberations of bad Hillary Clinton debate jokes, and Donald Trump/s suspicious sniffles are still ringing through the American electorate’s ears, and much like dutiful friends who just attended a disastrous improve show – the nation deserves a drink. The worst one liners from the first 2016 Presidential debate are all over the map. Some felt canned, others were definitely thought up on the spot and bit too wordy, and the worst were downright confusing. Keep reading if you have zero desire to maintain any semblance of sanity.

Some of the worst Presidential debate lines feel like they were quickly scribbled by an staffer and handed to each nominee out of sight of the moderator before being mangled by either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. There’s really no winner or loser when it comes to one liners at the debates, and at the end of the day everyone has to realize that their candidate isn’t as funny or as skilled with a soundbite as they hoped. For a complete rundown of bad Donald Trump jokes at the debate and comical observations from Hillary that wouldn’t make a step mom laugh, steel yourself.
