Super Tuesday comes once every four years and no matter which election cycle one is in, provides hefty chunks of entertainment.
2016 was no different. In fact, thanks to the fact that Trump seems almost a serious Presidential contender, entertainment was all but guaranteed.
Eventually, Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won big, but before the results were out, the other candidates gave us enough to laugh, cheer or get our snark on about.
Not a great night for the man by any stretch of the imagination. Yes, he won his first state in the elections, but not nearly enough to revitalise his campaign. But even though there was only doom and gloom, Rubio did throw in a great quote:
My favourite has to be: "Donald is not going to make America great, he's going to make America orange." (Rubio) #USElection- Ifrah Arshad (@iffiex) March 2, 2016
He should mebbe listen to these guys:
When tonight finishes with Cruz way ahead of Rubio, will anyone suggest Marco should stand aside?- Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) March 2, 2016
It certainly is panic time for the GOP.
"GOP establishment in panic mode, donors planning effort to deny him victory." -- headline morning of Trump's swearing-in, probably- Ryan Lizza (@RyanLizza) March 2, 2016
The New Jersey Governor did have the best moment of the night. At least for watching from afar. Take a look:

In the past few hours, there have been quite a few tweets on Texas senator Ted Cruz and the Zodiac killer. Here are two:
