Block your crazy uncle on Facebook and break out those Doritos you like to stress-eat: The first debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has finally arrived!

No sane American would sit through this thing with a BAC level of 0.0; in these apocalyptic times, you might as well drink as though you are about to be marched to the gates of Hell by a vengeful demon.

Okay! Do you have an ice-cold 30-pack of your favorite beer? Are you sitting with friends and family who are comfortable seeing you at your worst? Then let's get started!

Take a sip if Donald Trump says the following words/phrases:

Take two sips if Trump: 

  • Claims¬†he was against the Iraq War from the start
  • Claims he was against the Afghanistan War from the start
  • Claims he would have prevented 9/11
  • Claims he would have prevented a war that never actually happened
  • Refers¬†to America as "a third-world country"
  • Brags about the size of¬†his crowds

  • Completely whiffs on a foreign leader's name

  • Says that he will be a good president for women because he has "hired many of them"

Finish all of your beer, then go to the store and get more, and continue drinking until you enter a coma that lasts until November 9, if Donald Trump:


  • Is judged by TV pundits to have won the debate because he remained upright¬†for 90 minutes, spoke in English sentences,¬†refrained from hurling a sexist insult at his opponent, and¬†"looked presidential."
