Tuesday nights Democratic debate was another eventful insight into who will be Donald Trump's opponent in the 2020 presidential election.

In the second round of debates, which will run over two nights, the likes of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Marianne Williamson made the headlines after taking on the so-called moderates who are also running for office.

As always with these type of events, there were lots of tweets, reactions, jokes and memes that summed up how the evening, even if you didn't happen to watch it.

One particular moment really caught the public's imagination. At one point John Hickenlooper, the former governor of Colorado attacked Sanders, telling the socialist that his policies were 'too extreme' for the White House.

Sanders didn't take kindly to this remark and gestured his disapproval by throwing his hands up. Hickenlooper noticed this and yelled 'no, throw your hands up' which Sanders did again but with more vigour and a meme was born.

Elsewhere, there were many other memes involving Sanders and the other Democrats on stage and here are some of the best.
