Tuesday night's Democratic primary debate drew a large crowd to Las Vegas, but most of the world sounded off on Twitter, including GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, Mike Huckabee, and other Republican contenders.

Gathered below are the GOP's top tweets from the night, where they corrected the record, panned the rival politicians, and even told a few jokes.

Capitalism — CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Sanders if he is a capitalist, to which he replied, "Do I consider myself part of the casinos capitalist process? No, I don’t." Clinton, in turn, stated similarly that "we need to reign in the excess of capitalism."









Gun Control
— Bernie Sanders was the only Democratic candidate who defended the Second Amendment, saying that his rural constituents feel differently than urbanites. Clinton, O'Malley, and the others are for stricter gun control.





Foreign Policy
— The Democratic candidates were asked about their views on national security throughout the evening, and each time it drew a strong response from the GOP candidates.













Clinton's private email server
— Ahead of the debate, everyone was waiting to see what Sanders, O'Malley, and the other Democratic candidates would say about the months-long scandal. When all was said and done, none decided to criticize what she herself called a "mistake," and Sanders even defended her, saying people are tired of the issue. The GOP candidates were not about to let it slide, however.








Black Lives Matter — Asked if "black lives matter" or do "all lives matter," Sanders and O'Malley said that "black lives matter," while Webb said "every life" matters. Hillary was not asked the question.










Summing up
— One notable candidate offered his closing thoughts on the night.
