Politicians are already known to be awkward people. But when you cut out all the "debating" from the CNN Republican debate this week and you’re left only with all the awkward laughs, you begin to realize just how true that is. Even Donald Trump, famous as a great American entertainer, couldn’t save himself. Watch the video above if you dare, though fair warning: These cackles will stay with you.
