The candidates for the GOP presidential nomination duked it out on Saturday evening in New Hampshire in a debate just days before voters would select their candidates in Tuesday's primaries.
Twitter users took to social media to hilariously weigh in on the debate, from its awkward opening in which candidates Ben Carson and Donald Trump apparently didn't hear their names being called, to the content, which included everything from immigration to foreign policy to women being required to sign up for the draft.
From the debate's hilariously awkward opening:

Ted Cruz's college room mate, filmmaker Craig Mazin, also took to Twitter to weigh in on the candidates, including Cruz who he famously despises.
Comedian Patton Oswalt also watched and weighed in on the debate, tweeting or retweeting the following:
