10 things to do instead of watching the GOP debate

Before tonight’s Republican debate, we texted Hillary’s supporters to find out if they were planning to watch.

We got a lot of “no”s.

Instead of watching 15 Republicans share their out-of-touch, out-of-date ideas about trickle-down economics and blocking access to health care for women, here’s what actual voters are doing instead:


10. “I’ll be working on being a woman entrepreneur and painting my food truck to get it ready to open for business.”

— Jessie in Indiana


9. “Seeing the opening night of RICE at BAM’s Next Wave Festival, just blocks from Hillary’s office.”

— Krissa in Brooklyn


8. “Dinner with my kids.”

— Sam in Illinois


7. “Rather than listening to the Republican vitriol, I’ll be enjoying my evening with my new husband!”

— Ian and Michael in Minnesota


6. “I’m going pumpkin shopping.”

— Luke in New York


5. “I’m at an event that celebrates mentoring relationships for women with the NYC Lady Project.”

— Alexandra in New York


4. “Spending time with my best friend at Disneyland.”

— Natalie and Manuel in California


3. “Hanging out with my dog while I recover from knee surgery.”

— Cassie in Utah


2. “Thai dinner with the fam.”

— Mindy in Washington


1. “Door knocking for Hillary.”

— Olivia in Iowa
