Whether Fox News’ faulty live stream failed you or you merely abstained for sanity, we’ve crammed the best 60 seconds of the first GOP debate into the video above. Trump did Trump, flummoxing moderators who tried not to laugh; the mention of a gay wedding got unlikely applause; and there was even the occasional real question and real answer.

All told, it was one of the more entertaining debates in memory, and that was before Chris Christie and Rand Paul starting yelling at each other about terrorists. Enjoy the recap above.
