A full 20 minutes of Thursday night’s GOP debate on CNN had passed without an attack on or by Donald Trump. Marco Rubio had suggested that he’d leave behind the “spray tan” jokes, which didn’t seem to do him much good when voters went the polls earlier this week. Even the pundits had given up on ridiculing Trump, turning their attention to other matters, such as John Kasich’s hair.

#CNNDebate kasich really needs to ask to borrow some of the moderators hair gel. He looks like he rolled into debate after a nap.

Kasich's hair always looks like he took a nap in his closet.

#REPdebate what's up with Kasich's hair? Did they forget to wake him up earlier for this debate? Is he why they pushed it back to 9?
— James Wiley (@wileyjamese) March 11, 2016
I hate John Kasich's hair.

Who has the stranger hair: Trump or Kasich?
— Taegan Goddard (@politicalwire) March 11, 2016
I want to take Kasich’s hair home and give it a shower and a meal.

John Kasich makes enough money to stop cutting his own hair. #GOPDebate
— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) March 11, 2016
Not watching the debate but it sounds like Kasich got his hair cut at that Great Clips next to the fish market on Snelling Ave in St Paul.

Kasich's hair stylist really shanked him on the sneak tip,

Did Kasich try to spike his hair? #GOPDebate
— Eye on Politics (@EyeOnPolitics) March 11, 2016
Kasich has messed up hair and too much mascara…like a desperate 59 year old widow out on the town #GOPDebate
— Andrew Rasmussen (@Razzpunk) March 11, 2016
Someone needs to tell Kasich that he can't be cool no matter how his hair gets cut..
— Jason (@throckdawg) March 11, 2016
Nothing says "I'm blue collar" like John Kasich's unkempt hair. But nothing says "I'm not #presidential" like John Kasich's unkempt hair.

Whoever rubbed Kasich's hair with a balloon and sent him out on stage…kudos.

Theory: John Kasich cuts his hair with a Flobee. #GOPDebate
— Shane (@sbliss89) March 11, 2016
Kasich cut his own hair right before the debate in his green room I can tell
— denny (@dennymayo) March 11, 2016
Maybe Kasich should have combed his hair for this little event called a Presidential debate?
— Stephanie (@OMGrisham) March 11, 2016
So the rest of America has finally caught on to how bad Kasich's hair always looks?
— Invasive Trash Tree (@WindingDot) March 11, 2016
Kasich's hair hurts me
— AH (@aaron_hackworth) March 11, 2016
It’s a debate after all, so let’s give some time to the opposing viewpoint.
Is it just me or is there a slightly raffish spikiness to John Kasich’s hair?
— Lydia Polgreen (@lpolgreen) March 11, 2016
I appreciate John Kasich's cowlick, keeping his hair messy all the time.
— Matt L. Stephens (@MattStephens) March 11, 2016
I’m giving Kasich a provisional A on his hair styling. Big improvement.
— John Lilly (@johnolilly) March 11, 2016
Kasich’s hair looks tremendous tonight. Very modern. #GOPDebate
— daveanthony (@daveanthony) March 11, 2016
Going out on a limb to say Kasich has the best hair of any Republican presidential candidate.

Have we discussed Jake Tapper’s pocket square?
— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) March 11, 2016
No; stick to the issues, please.
