Thursday's GOP debate on CNN produced one of Donald Trump's most embarrassing moments on the campaign trail so far. At least for his level of self-awareness.

Marco Rubio pounced on Trump's repeated use of smear tactics, and the foundation of his campaign as an anti-establishment candidate.

You say the same thing every night: 'Everyone’s dumb, I’m going to make America great again, I’m winning in the polls, lines around the states.' Every night!

At which point Trump lost any command of his faculties he previously held:

I'm not repeating myself. I don't repeat myself. I don't repeat myself. Here's the guy who repeats himself. I don't repeat myself.

He then tried to draw attention to Rubio's oft-repeated campaign lines:

Talking about repeating yourself - I watched him repeat himself five times four weeks ago-

At which Rubio interjected, to applause:

I just watched you repeat yourself five times, five seconds ago!
