PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Lincoln Chafee was all over social media Tuesday night as he took part in CNN’s Democratic presidential debate, however the reaction may not have been what he was hoping for.

Rhode Island’s former governor went toe-to-toe with front runners Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, and noticeably struggled with questions from moderator Anderson Cooper.

Chafee’s performance was widely panned in the media, and the response on social media was less than kind, to say the least.
