After the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, we asked for your one-sentence response to the debate.

Our readers did not disappoint, even though many were disappointed by the debate itself.

Here is what our readers had to say.

Doug Croft of Sterling: "Stop lying and interrupting."

Gerry Torri of DePue: "Debate format and Wallace were awful."

Kaelyn Rodriguez of Marseilles: "Welcome to our world, Chris Wallace (Love, all teachers)."

Kim Daniels of Marseilles: "Don’t have any more....please!!!"

Matt Ganz of Tonica: "I am embarrassed that our highest office has devolved to such a point, the president has promoted an environment of anger and division that bled into the debate where he wouldn’t denounce white supremacists, instead telling them to 'stand back and standby.'"

Lindsay Rubio of Marseilles: "Never in the history of political debates have we seen such an undignified, disgraceful, chaotic and combative behavior."

Terri Thibado of Dixon: "The debate is like trying to put a puzzle together that’s missing pieces."

Tim Rissman of DeKalb: "Honey, get our passports."

Kristin Whitaker of Washington: "Cage match would have been cleaner."
