Overview

The 2024 CNN Presidential Debate refers to the first debate that took place during the 2024 U.S. Presidential Election between the preliminary Republican and Democratic Presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Joe Biden, which was aired on CNN in late June 2024. Following the event, many Republican and Democrat voters questioned President Joe Biden's mental aptitude in the aftermath of the debate as concerns over his age spread widely online, as well as in reporting by the media. Memes (such as I Really Don't Know What He Said at the End of That Sentence), discourse and other reactions also emerged en masse shortly after, with many Americans expressing their apathy for the upcoming election and their annoyance at the candidate options for president.
