On his Thursday show, Stephen Colbert mocked the first GOP presidential candidate debate, which took place in South Carolina last night with almost no big name contenders present.

In other GOP-related comedy, Colbert draws our attention to some of Donald Trump's stranger comments of the week, such as comparing gay marriage to long golf clubs (both, according to The Donald, are unnatural).
