Republican debate's 'Trumpiest' moments

The first Republican debate hosted by Fox News in Cleveland was full of sassy moments, the signature style of candidate Donald Trump. We call them "Trumpisms" and there were plenty to go around.

We ranked the candidates on how much they emulated Trump during the debate, from one Trump to four Trumps (on the left side of the photos). And gave them all Trump hair.

Here were the most memorable "Trumpisms" of the night.

"Well, first, let me say I think God has blessed us. He has blessed the Republican Party with some very good candidates. The Democrats can't even find one."

"I think future generations will look back at this history of our country and call us barbarians for murdering millions of babies who we never gave them a chance to live."

"I'm the leading voice in America for not arming the allies of ISIS ... ISIS rides around in a billion dollars worth of U.S. Humvees."

To Gov. Chris Christie: "I don't trust President Obama with our records. I know you gave him a big hug, and if you want to give him a big hug again, go right ahead."

"If you think [the N.J. economy] is bad now, you should've seen it when I got there."

"It's time that we recognize the Supreme Court is not the supreme being, and we change the policy to be pro-life and protect children instead of rip up their body parts and sell them like they're parts to a Buick."

"The purpose of the military is kill people and break things."

"If it weren't for me, you wouldn't even be talking about illegal immigration."

"The fact is, since then, many killings,murders, crime, drugs pouring across the border, are money going out and the drugs coming in. And I said we need to build a wall, and it has to be built quickly. And I don't mind having a big beautiful door in that wall so that people can come into this country legally."

"Our leaders are stupid. Our politicians are stupid."

"I don't think you heard me. You're having a hard time tonight."
