While the first debate was marked by memes and ironies related to Cabo Daciolo, in the second, the users were more interested in the clash of ideas and the discussions between the presidential hopefuls.  The confrontation between Marina and Bolsonaro was the most discussed one, reflecting the “scolding” of the former and her defense of the secular State.
