Mariska Hargitay Slams First Presidential Debate

Law & Order: SVU superstar Mariska Hargitay is speaking out after the first 2020 Presidential Debate aired Tuesday night.

The 56-year-old took to Twitter to express her frustrations about the debate, and let's just say, our queen did not hold back.

I think I speak for many SVU fans when I say — WHERE IS OLIVA BENSON WHEN WE NEED HER?!

Mariska Hargitay is, without a doubt, one of the most beloved TV stars of all time.

You don't star in a series for 21 (going on 22) seasons without becoming a friggin LEGEND in the hearts and minds of Americans everywhere!

So when Mariska took to Twitter last night to air out her grievances in regards to the first 2020 Presidential Debate, the 56-year-old did not hold back.

Nearly an hour and a half into the debate, the actress summed up many viewers feelings by tweeting "This is a disgrace."

Just 8 minutes later, Mariska had clearly had enough.

"Trump STOP" she wrote, gaining support from fans on social media.

"I don’t usually talk to my tv, but I’ve been yelling at Trump to 'shut up' since the debate started lol," agreed Twitter user @MaleficentMid.

In regards to the President continuously interrupting candidate Joe Biden, Mariska suggested they "cut his mic."

Who would have thought we'd end up wishing this debate was a Zoom call?!

That mute button is a LIFE SAVER!

Finally, Mariska left her followers with a message of compassion and hope for the future.

"The abuse of power, the yelling, the racism...Trump’s 'display' tonight may have been extremely triggering to people and I just want you to know that I see you," she tweeted.

"Please take care of yourselves tonight. And tomorrow, with a rested mind and a fuller heart, please make a voting plan."
