At Thursday evening’s Fox News GOP debate, four candidates remained — Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and John Kasich — and they couldn’t be more different from each other. Each sought to convince more voters before five states (Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, and Nebraska) cast their primary or caucus votes this weekend. These guys provided more than enough action on their own, so no one missed the absent Ben Carson, but he never got much air time anyway.
Plenty of madness went down in this debate, including Donald Trump talking fondly about his penis. In addition, Bill O’Reilly may have been drunk, and Ted Cruz may have swallowed his own tooth. Once again, the candidates took each other out despite trying (very hard) not to do so. Of course, Megyn Kelly enjoyed sparring hard with Trump after winning the last Fox News debate when he backed out like a coward. Kelly is still the same lady who grilled Trump on his “disparaging” remarks about women and got threatened in the process. This time, she really let Trump have it.
Even when Kelly briefly let up on Trump, the other guys picked on him, so he was on the defense for the entire evening. Kasich left him alone, but Cruz and Rubio gleefully tag-teamed him. Trump couldn’t cope and gave his opponents nicknames as a defense mechanism. The most awkward moment happened right here with these fist bumps.
