Donald Trump's boycott of FOX continues, and him opting out of last night's GOP debate (the seventh so far) created the perfect opportunity for a hearty round of Trump-mocking. Moderator Megyn Kelly, the person at the center of the FOX-Trump feud, took the first swipe, jokingly referring to him as "the elephant not in the room."

She then said: "Donald Trump has chosen not to attend this evening's presidential debate. What message do you think that sends to the voters of Iowa?" Kelly reportedly took her beef even further when she was off-camera, calling him one of the worst things you could call someone, aside from Hitler (which he's already been called): Voldemort.

Texas senator Ted Cruz took advantage of Trump's absence and pulled out his best impression of the billionaire: "I'm a maniac and everyone on this stage is stupid, fat and ugly and Ben [Carson], you're a terrible surgeon." He went on: "Now that we've gotten the Donald Trump portion out of the way, I want to thank everyone here for showing the men and women of Iowa the respect to show up." 

Florida senator Marco Rubio got in on the action, calling Trump "an entertaining guy" and comparing him to a circus: "the greatest show on earth." Jeb Bush was actually pretty funny, stating: "I kinda miss Donald Trump. He was a little teddy bear to me. We always had such a loving relationship there in these debates and in between with the tweets."
