Last Night’s GOP Debate Was Exactly What We Expected It To Be

In case you ever needed a reminder that you really can accomplish anything you set your mind to, take a look at the Republican party, specifically Donald Trump.

During last night’s laughable GOP Debate, Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio ruthlessly went after Donald Trump (who is also the frontrunner of the Republican party) after Trump unexpectedly swept Super Tuesday, bringing him one step closer to (maybe) receiving the Republican nomination. 

At the top of the debate, Trump was asked to address earlier statements made by Mitt Romney, in which the former Republican nominee called him a phony.

“Well look, he was a failed candidate. He should have beaten President Obama very easy,” Trump said. “He failed miserably, and it was an embarrassment to everybody, including the Republican party. It looked like he went away on a vacation the last month. So, I don’t take that, and I guess, obviously, he wants to be relevant. He wants to be back in the game.”

And then they got to talking about the real issues. You know, like the size of Donald Trump’s penis.

“He hit my hands,” he said. “Nobody’s ever hit my hands, I’ve never heard of this one. Look at those hands. Are they small hands? And he referred to my hands, if they’re small, something else must be small, and I can guarantee there’s no problem. I can guarantee it.”

Cruz and Rubio pretty much took the time during this debate to warn voters of what they’re actually in for when they vote for Trump, which obviously lead to more than a few comeback battles. But Trump overshadowed everybody, throwing around classic insults like “little Marco” and “lying Ted.”

Trump also refused to release the recording of an off-the-record interview he gave to The New York Times, in which, BuzzFeed alleged earlier this week, the candidate said he doesn’t believe in his own immigration plan. 

Other highlights? Something flew out of Cruz’s mouth while he was speaking, and was on his lips for an excruciatingly long time before he ate it. John Kasich tried to remind people about his experience and accomplishments as the Governor of Ohio, forgetting that experience doesn’t mean all that much in this election and that he only has 25 delegates. Trump said waterboarding was “fine.” It was truly a night to remember!
