Republican Debate, Donald Trump

The second Republican presidential debate Wednesday night was a hotbed of emotion, from Carly Fiorina giving the ultimate burn to Donald Trump insulting pretty much everyone. But it turns out it was the Donald who couldn't contain his excitement, surprise, shock, etc. from the audience.

When host Jake Tapper asked the real estate mogul's competitors about whether or not he had the proper temperament to be president, his face couldn't hide his horror, disbelief, satisfaction and more emotions that could be summed up using one simple tool: an emoji.

Tapper quoted Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana, who said he didn't want "such a hothead with his fingers on the nuclear codes," and that's when Trump's face went wild. From raised eyebrows to a smirk, he covered it all. Trump even channeled his best head tilt, which he then combined with an open-mouthed look of disgust. We have to admit it: This kind of thing takes sheer talent. 

The Vine video has since gone viral (obviously), with people tweeting and adding their own glorious commentary. "20 minutes into debate and chill and he gives you that look," wrote one Twitter user.

Even though this video happened to catch all of Trump's amazing looks in six seconds, his face gave the performance of a lifetime throughout the entire evening.
