What a show!

Our heads are still spinning from that Fox News Republican debate, so we'll just leave you with a round-up of some of our favorite tweets from the Republican slugfest.

First, there was Happy Hour. At least that was the euphemism assigned to the 5pm debate/candidate's forum for the bottom seven Republican candidates:

Finally, the main show:

Of course there it was all Trump-a-palooza over on Twitter:

Even Sen. Bernie Sanders got in on the game

And the one tweet that encapsulated the entire night came from an old GOP debate stage veteran:
