Joe Biden had some pretty choice words for President Trump last night during this year's first presidential debate, and reactions have been strong...
As we all expected, things were quick to turn ugly last night...
via: GettyTrump V Biden was never going to be a civilized affair, but the scenes that unfolded last night were nothing short of brutal.
Tensions between the candidates have been bubbling for some time now...
via: GettyAnd, last night, it seemed that their mutual feelings of resentment finally reached a boiling point.
And, in a moment many weren't expecting...
via: GettyBiden suddenly lashed out at President Trump when he continued to speak over him.
While many have criticized Biden for his unprofessionalism...
@MSNBC Finally someone said to Trump what I’ve wanted to say to him for the last four years!— Doremus Jessup (@Doremus Jessup)1601429358.0
Now, there were many eye-opening moments from the ninety-minute debate.
via: GettyFor example...
Trump was asked to condemn white supremacist groups...
via: GettyBut instead chose to focus on the left. He said: "Sure I'm willing to do that, but almost everything I see is from the left-wing. I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace." And, when asked to give this group of people a name, he responded with "Proud Boys." Proud Boys, a neo-Nazi organization, appeared to use Trump's "stand back, stand by" call in a new logo posted on Telegram shortly after the debate.
The President did provide some good news with regards to a coronavirus vaccine, however.
via: GettyWhen Biden pointed out that 200,000 Americans have died during the pandemic as a result of the President's "lack of plan", Trump retaliated by insisting that "millions would have died if Biden was in charge." He then added that the US is "weeks away" from a vaccine, and his administration had done a "great job."
Biden's son, Hunter, was then dragged back into the firing line.
via: GettyThe President brought up Biden's son, claiming the mayor of Moscow's wife gave him millions of dollars and raising questions over his links with Ukraine. He also mentioned Hunter's drug problems.
Clearly, his words about Hunter hit a nerve with Biden.

The insults continued to flow.
via: Getty"Everything he's saying here is simply a lie, everybody knows he's a liar," Biden said during an exchange about healthcare.
And, of course, President Trump didn't take them quietly.
via: GettyNot to be outdone, Trump got in plenty of digs as well, firing at his opponent: "There's nothing smart about you Joe. Forty-seven years, you've done nothing."
But, out of their many valiant attempts to slander one another...
via: GettyThere was one moment that stood out amongst the rest.
Now, not everyone was too impressed...
@chrislhayes @NicolleDWallace Yes that made me cringe! So unprofessional...where was the question that @JoeBiden was going to like?— Aleta Devaney (@Aleta Devaney)1601435113.0
However, on the other hand...
@kurtbardella @JoeBiden @realDonaldTrump I apologize. I don't know the question. Just hearing Joe say those words made my fukin night.— CEH (@CEH)1601442062.0
Because, as you may have already heard...
via: GettyBiden actually called Trump "the worst president this country has ever had."
Reactions to his statement have been strong...

The remark came after Chris Wallace referenced a New York Times report showing that Trump paid just $750 in federal income tax in both 2016 and 2017...
via: GettyThis was due to a nearly $10 million tax credit connected to a hotel project in Washington, although Trump insists it's "fake news."
Trump claimed he had actually paid ″millions of dollars in taxes.″
via: Getty″Is it true that you paid $750 in federal income taxes?″ Wallace asked of Trump. ″Show us your tax returns,″ Biden interjected.
Trump replied the public would ″see it as soon as it's finished,″ and that he ″[doesn't] want to pay tax,″ but that his tax decisions have been smart.
via: TwitterBiden replied saying that Trump ″takes advantage of the tax code″ and that he would eliminate the tax codes as president and invest in people who ″need help.″
″Why didn't you do it over the last 25 years?″ Trump asked.
via: TwitterBiden responded: “Because you were president screwing things up. "You’re the worst president America has ever had, c’mon."
Trump shot back that he had ″done more in 47 months than you’ve done in 47 years, Joe.″
