Last night’s Republican Presidential Primary debate brought out all the right wing’s best and brightest candidates … for scowl-fueled mugshots come 2028.

Eight presidential hopefuls including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Former Vice President Mike Pence and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy took to the stage in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, ready to duke it out on hot-button topics including immigration, abortion, climate change and education.

Though former President Donald Trump was notably absent from the affair, sitting down instead with Swanson heir Tucker Carlson hours before he’s set to turn himself in at the Fulton County jail in Atlanta, Georgia, the debate was still chock-full of absurd moments from America’s oldest and staunchest minds.

From Christie likening Ramaswamy to Chat GPT to DeSantis taking his resemblance to an off-highway wax museum’s Homelander statue to uncanny, sweaty new heights, here are all the craziest moments from the first Republican presidential debate of the 2024 election cycle.
