Some Republicans' kids trolled the GOP debate



ICYMI, the latest GOP Debate was last night and it was filmed live from our very own Fox Theatre. We got to watch Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and some dude named John Kasich battle it out for a very, very, long time.

While moderator Megyn Kelly was addressing the candidates, two girls saw their moment for Internet glory and went for it.  

Following the 'dab seen round the Internet,' attention — if ever so briefly — was diverted from the squabbling happening onstage. 

For those of you unfamiliar with the dab, it's the dance that some lady asked Cam Newton to please stop doing (think of the children!), which all-but-guaranteed it would become a pop culture phenomenon.   

We're sure these girls' parents are super proud, their fellow Americans sure were.
