Watch the Craziest Moments: GOP Candidates Face Off With CNN's Jake Tapper

In anticipation of the GOP debate tonight, here's a mashup of the craziest moments the Republican candidates have had with the host in recent weeks.

Tonight's Republican debate, hosted by Jake Tapper, is a really just a culmination of one-on-one interviews.
 
1. Donald Trump refused to disavow the KKK on Jake Tapper’s State of The Union two weeks ago. He later blamed the incident on a lousy earpiece. This is their first interaction since.
 
2. Ted Cruz has no concrete answers when asked why he can beat Trump, which he still believes even after losing key states such as South Carolina.
 
3. Marco Rubio has been advised to drop out before losing Florida. On Super Tuesday, Donald Trump took seven states while Rubio took one state, Minnesota, his first. Tapper flat-out asked Rubio that night if he was in denial. The Florida primary is Tuesday, March 15, which Rubio is sure he'll win, although all signs point to Trump. No doubt this is the longest week of Rubio's life, and he’ll be sweating more than ever tonight. 
 
4. John Kasich is even more hopeless. The Ohio governor has yet to win a single primary.
 
Expect to see more of this tonight:
