The Internet High-Fived Megyn Kelly For Winning The Fox News GOP Debate

Republican Presidential Candidates Debate In Iowa Days Before State's Caucus

Thursday evening’s Fox News GOP debate went on as planned without Donald Trump, who held his own Iowa event to benefit wounded veterans (though the figures are looking sketchy). In doing so, Trump used his CNN-covered shindig to draw viewers away from Fox News, but some protesters shook things up a bit. It’s not a Trump rally without either tossed tomatoes, protesters, or both.

Over on Fox News, a mostly civilized debate took place. The adventurous GOP candidates who participated (along with moderator Megyn Kelly) paid lip service to “the elephant not in the room” by expressing faux regret that Trump did not attend. Zombie Jeb Bush said, “I kinda miss Donald Trump, he was a little teddy bear to me. We always had such a loving relationship.” Awkward.
