"I wouldn't have survived 5 minutes on that stage without slapping him across the face – and I don't think I'm alone in thinking that," Naomi raged
The 26-year-old issued a running commentary during the "train wreck" debate in Cleveland, Ohio, last night.
It rapidly descended into mudslinging and personal insults as Trump targeted the Biden family, namely Hunter, 50.
The president slammed Hunter's foreign business deals in one of dozens of heated exchanges.
Biden vehemently defended his son and said Trump was lying during their first presidential debate.
Trump painted Biden as incompetent, claiming he "could never have done the job that we did, you don't have it in your blood."
But Naomi shot back on Twitter, decrying Trump as the "worst president in American history" and slamming him for telling the Proud Boys – a right-wing organization – to "standby."
Meanwhile, the exasperated moderator Chris Wallace quickly lost control as Trump and Biden talked over each other – and the president repeatedly took aim at Biden's children, namely Hunter.
Trump derided Hunter's struggle with addiction and claimed he took $3.5million from the wealthy wife of the former Mayor of Moscow, which Biden vehemently denied.
Naomi retweeted a thread about her dad that she had shared last week, which described him as "a man filled with love, integrity, and human struggles."
"It’s not about his family or my family—it’s about our families," she wrote. "None of us signed up for this mess."
During the debate, Biden brought up his late son Beau and reiterated accusations that Trump called fallen troops "losers" and "suckers."
Beau spent a year in Iraq and served in the National Guard before losing his battle with brain cancer in 2015.
"Speaking of my son, the way you talk about the military – the way you talk about them being losers and being, and just being suckers– my son was in Iraq and he spent a year there," Biden said.
"He got the Bronze Star. He got the Conspicuous Service Medal. He was not a loser. He was a patriot. And the people left behind there were heroes."
"You talking about Hunter?" Trump retorted. "I don't know Beau. I know Hunter.
"He [Hunter] was thrown out, dishonorably discharged for cocaine use. And he didn't have a job until you became vice president."
In 2013, Hunter received an administrative discharge from the Navy in 2013 after failing a drug test for cocaine.
He was seeking to be commissioned as a reserve officer but contrary to Trump's statement, Hunter got an administrative discharge rather than a dishonorable discharge.
"My son, like a lot of people we know at home, he had a drug problem," Biden said. "He's fixed it. He's worked on it. And I'm proud of him."
Earlier, Trump had lambasted Hunter, claiming "he takes out billions of dollars to manage" and "he makes millions of dollars" in relation to the business he did with his firm Rosemont Seneca Partners, LLC, which Biden denied.
