Funniest Donald Trump Tweets During GOP Debate
Well, the circus was in — ehm, I mean the GOP debate was on Fox News this Thursday night. The night got off to a running slump for ringmaster/Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump when he was booed in the first five minutes of the night (we made a Vine, just in case you want to keep reliving the moment). Things didn't get much better from there for the bafflingly successful billionaire frontrunner, who seemed more orange and confused than usual, which is truly saying something.
Trump seemed to be uncharacteristically self-aware that he was flailing, and so naturally, took to doing what he does best — degrading others until he began to pick up speed. First, he took on Megan Kelly: "What I say — and oftentimes it's fun, it's kidding, we have a good time. What I say is what I say. And honestly, Megyn, if you don't like it, I'm sorry. I've been nice to you, though frankly I could probably maybe not be, based on the way you've treated me." Then, he took on Rand Paul's hearing, and then ... well you get the gist. It was pretty much downhill (or uphill, depending on your sense of humor) from there, and Twitter experienced the early Christmas morning it had dreamed of ever since Trump implied that all Latinos are criminals.
Here, in all their glory, are some of the funniest tweets about Trump of the night.
Kind of wish Trump had entered the debate stage this way. https://t.co/oCTX01fdlt— (@cillizzacnn) #
