If the 2016 presidential candidates are good at one thing, it’s being derailed by everything from inanimate objects, to protesters, and even other candidates while they try to get their point across. For viewers, the 2016 election cycle has been one of the most exciting, if not harrowing, elections in recent memory. Most people would blame all the excitement on Donald Trump, who’s managed to maintain his stranglehold on the conservative party despite his unpopularity with its leaders, but he’s not the only candidate who’s decided to let their freak flag fly. Either because of, or in spite of Trump’s WWE attitude towards the campaign cycle, there seems to have been more mudslinging and name calling in 2016 than in any other year. In fact, during some of the larger GOP debates it felt like Chris Christie was going to crack a steel chair over Marco Rubio before cutting to a promo about how he’s the champion of New Jersey. This list compiles some of the most cringeworthy moments of the 2016 candidates losing control of the conversation.Some of these videos of candidates letting their campaigns completely spiral out of control are so hard to watch that you’re going to need to take a break and maybe watch kitten cuddle party to break up the nonstop train wreck footage that’s assembled before you. And if you’re worried that this mess isn't being bipartisan enough, don’t worry, there's plenty of footage of Hillary and Bernie losing their cool and completely shutting down, too.
