NBC's Saturday Night Live did a tremendous job of spoofing the latest Republican presidential primary debate that appeared on the Fox Business Network last week.

They skewered almost all the candidates including Trump's birther attack, and Ted Cruz' idiotic "New York values" answer, which included his penchant for delving into pop culture TV shows and telling the audience what he really meant by it all.

“I think most people know exactly what New York values are. And frankly, they are not the rest of the country’s values,” he said. “Instead of celebrating Christmas, New Yorkers celebrate a pagan holiday called ‘Festivus.’ Instead of watching American football, they challenge each other to masturbation contests. In New York people don’t say ‘hi’ to their neighbors. They say ‘Hello, Newman.’”

Told he was describing episodes of “Seinfeld,” Cruz replied: “Believe me, if I could say liberal Jews, I would.”

I do have to admit that Jay Pharoah's Dr. Ben Carson, always cracks me up the most. Just looking at his set up before he speaks has me rolling.
