Sports world frustrated, urging people to vote on social media after first presidential debate

A chaotic presidential debate took place on Tuesday night, and the sports world had one simple message to share on social media: Vote.

Plenty of athletes, coaches and other prominent figures in the sports world took to social media throughout a wild, turbulent presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden in Cleveland, Ohio.

Many quickly complained about both Biden and Trump — who were constantly talking over each other — and Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, who moderated the event.

Trump failed to condemn white supremacy when asked directly, too — something that stunned plenty.

The overwhelming message, however, was to get out and vote.

And if any future moderators need a better way to structure debates going forward, ESPN’s “Around The Horn” host had a simple yet elegant solution.
