VIDEO: ABC’s Republican debate intro is as awkward a TV moment as you’re ever likely to see

Live to the nation.

US network ABC hosted a debate between the main players in the Republican presidential field last night and it produced TV gold at the very beginning.

The seven candidates; Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump, were all individually introduced on stage.

However, a few of the candidates didn’t hear their names when called and a bit of a pile-up built at the side of the stage. It’s actually really funny and very cringey.
