The GOP Debate. It came, we watched, it blew our minds! Donald Trump is like teflon...nothing sticks to that guy. Marco Rubio was a surprise standout. Jeb Bush looked pretty old. Scott Walker was boring.

He might, because he's the Wolf of Wall Street we all hate to love, and he likes it that way. Underneath all the pomp and that sweet, sweet combover, Trump's got the one message we all secretly wish was coming out of every other candidate's mouth.
