As we head into the New Hampshire primary, all eyes at the late night comedy shows were on the weekend’s big Republican debate — and especially Marco Rubio’s botched performance, in which he repeated the same slogans over and over.

Trevor Noah declared: “Sen. Rubio, it’s time for you to take a page out of Dr. Carson’s book — next time there’s a debate, take a moment, and think about not coming out. But for now, go home, get some fresh clothes — because let’s be honest, you just @#$% your pants.”

Larry Wilmore tore apart Marco Rubio’s robotic performance — and how it even extends to Rubio’s campaign ads that are meant to show spontaneous-acting locals who support him, in both Iowa and New Hampshire.

Stephen Colbert delivered a special reenactment of Ben Carson’s flubbed debate entrance.

Jimmy Kimmel also reviewed Carson’s missed entrance, and how he had blocked everyone else — or as Jimmy called it, “the five-Carson pileup.”

Seth Meyers looked over the various antics of the Republican debate — ranging from Ben Carson’s botched entrance, to Donald Trump “going full wrestling heel” on the audience.

Conan O’Brien pointed out that today will not only be the New Hampshire primary — but it’s also Mardi Gras: “In other words, two occasions where thousands of people scream for boobs.”

El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen told The Dallas Morning News that Patrick Crusius, who was 21 years old at the time, purchased a 7.62 mm caliber gun and drove some 10 hours west from Allen, Texas, to carry out the massacre.
