Are you ready for tonight’s Presidential debate? Don’t worry, none of us are. Make sure you can’t remember any of it with this dope-ass drinking game.

Take a drink every time:

  • Hillary says “temperament”
  • Hillary mentions Trump’s taxes
  • Hillary mentions some failed Trump business
  • Hillary brings up being the first female President
  • Hillary says “Stronger Together”
  • Hillary gives an answer that is pure boring policy minutia that nobody cares about
  • Trump says “China” or “Mexico”
  • Trump uses more than two superlatives in one sentence
  • Trump says “Believe me”
  • Trump subtly alludes to any Bill Clinton sex scandal
  • Trump says “Crooked Hillary”
  • Trump talks about any of his children or wives
  • Trump dodges a question because he obviously has no f*cking idea what’s going on
  • Either candidate brings up some anecdote of an American to justify their policy position (e.g. Hillary talks about an immigrant who built a business)
  • Anyone at the debate says the phrase “Trump University”
  • Anyone at the debate mentions “Putin”
  • Anyone at the debate says “Benghazi”
  • Anyone at the debate mentions “emails” (stop after 9th drink)

Finish your drink when:

  • Trump makes some vague reference to Hillary’s health
  • Trump uses more than three superlatives in one sentences
  • Trump overtly brings up any Bill Clinton sex scandal
  • Trump tries to use terrorism to court LGBTQ+ people
  • Trump makes an offhand comment about Hillary’s physical appearance
  • Hillary noticeably coughs
  • Hillary brings up Trump’s tax returns for a second time (repeat if necessary)
  • Hillary laughs / brushes off allegations of corruption
  • Anyone at the debate mentions a reason someone is “disqualified to be President”

Finish your bottle when:

  • This debate makes you wish you were drunk
  • You just want to end it all
