While a range of topics were discussed during the vice presidential debate, many Americans were most curious about what exactly Joe Biden was referring to when he called Paul Ryan's statements "malarkey."
According to Google , one of the top rising search terms during Thursday night's debate was the word "malarkey, " a word that the vice president used several times.
Biden first dropped the term in response to Ryan's statements regarding the Obama administration's policies in the Middle East.
Americans were also apparently curious about Ryan's age, with another top rising search term on Google being "How old is Paul Ryan." For the record, he's 42.
