Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a former Democratic presidential hopeful, brought the real talk on Twitter during the first presidential debate.

Sanders tweeted about the importance of the debate early Monday evening:

He also shared his expectations for Republican nominee Donald Trump:

Sanders called out Trump for his hypocrisy on manufacturing jobs abroad:

Sanders also called out Trump’s past claims on climate change, which Trump denied ever making:

And that was just in the first 20 minutes of the debate.
