Welcome to Trendsburgh! Every Monday-Friday at 5 p.m. (sometimes earlier), we'll give you a quick recap of what was trending on Twitter and/or Facebook here in the 'Burgh and U.S. throughout the day.
Today's trends: Monday, Oct. 10
After Sunday's testy debate, all eyes were on Ambridge to see how Donald Trump would follow up his performance.
Chris Potter reports Trump did not back down on attacking Hillary Clinton, going as far as saying she was "overrated" and following up on his promise to put her in jail should he be elected president.
This all happened after House Speaker Paul Ryan said he would not longer support or even campaign for Trump.
While Ryan did not say he was withdrawing his endorsement of Trump, some of the House members took it that way and angrily attacked him for effectively giving up the White House race.
To which Trump responded (via Twitter, of course):
Paul Ryan should spend more time on balancing the budget, jobs and illegal immigration and not waste his time on fighting Republican nominee— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 10, 2016
He later added this in a speech:
SHADE ALERT!— Candace Smith (@CandaceSmith_) October 11, 2016
Trump: Too bad we don’t have stronger leadership...you have ppl that can't fix the budget but start talking about their nominee
The RNC, meanwhile....
The Internet had all types of jokes and feelings about the debate. This, however, might be the winner (apart from Ken Bone, who gets his own entry further down)
Looks like the Penguins will have to work extra hard to repeat as Stanley Cup champs.
The Penguins captain was diagnosed with a concussion today.
"It is what it is," Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. “Injuries are part of our game, and so part of the challenge is for us to help Sid get healthy as quickly as possible."
Some Internet reactions:
Im a Flyers fan. i hate the Pens BUT if we dont let players protect guys like Crosby, the whole game suffers. What happened if 99 got hit?— Nine Finger (@JodyWarren1) October 10, 2016
Don't like the guy but not good for the game to see Sidney Crosby out with another concussion.— Claude Perron (@clp70) October 10, 2016
"Sidney Crosby diagnosed with a concussion"— Kris Letang's Ego (@Kris_Letang_Ego) October 10, 2016

crosby's trophy case fell on his head. sorry. Its really heavy and full— NHL Insiider (@MouseRat_Fan) October 10, 2016
And one we can all agree on:
I'm just as upset about Crosby being diagnosed with a concussion as I am about this election. Ugh— Iris Matijević (@iris_matijevic) October 10, 2016
The real winner of the debate? Undecided voter Ken Bone.
He questioned Trump and Hillary on energy, asking, "What steps will your energy policy take to meet our energy needs, while at the same time remaining environmentally friendly and minimizing job loss for fossil power plant workers?"
At first, the Internet was more interested in the red sweater Bone was wearing.
Once they found out *why* he was wearing it though, Bone became an instant online celebrity.
Ken Bone says he wore the red sweater as a plan B to the debate because he “split the seat of my pants wide open” https://t.co/H9eL2wi5as— CNN (@CNN) October 10, 2016
His Twitter following exploded overnight.
Just spoke to Ken Bone who confirmed he is indeed @kenbone18. Had SEVEN followers when the debate started, now at 36,000+— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) October 10, 2016
Expect to see that red sweater just about everywhere soon.
Hmm....how about it, Antonio Brown?
One writer however was not impressed (Warning: foul language used)
As for his new "stardom," Bone told The Washington Post:
“I find it very strange that I was one of the takeaways from the debate. I think there’s plenty of issues to talk about, but I’m happy to be able to put a positive spin on the political process, and keep people engaged when it seems so dreary at times.”
Alas, he's still undecided.

While you were watching the debate or something else, America's favorite Olympian to hate got engaged.
