>> before we get to the issues, t's address the elephant not in the room tonight. last iowa debate -- >> reporter: donald trump, for once, was not center stage. >> i kind of miss donald trump. he was a little teddy bear to me. relationonip. >> reporter: but he was still very much the center off atteteion. >> let me say i'm a maniac. and everyone on this stage is stupid, fat, and ugly. and ben, you're a terrible surgeon. now that we've gotten the donald trump portion out of the way -- >> reporter: tonight trump went rogue, holding his own event for moines. >> do all the cameras like the academy awards. this is like the academy awards! >> reporter: he also raised $6 million for vet. four days to caucus night and this bizarre split-screen moment. >> i didn't want to be here, i have to be honest. i wanted to be about five mites away.
carried donald trump's rally. >> fox has been extremely nice and the last number of hours, actually -- and they've wanted me there and they said, how about now? they called a few minutes ago. how about now? started? >> reporter: on fox the last gop front-runner. his absence gave se of the shine. >> in new hampshire, i just received the support of seven out of eight of the newspapers in that state. because they see positives, they see unity, they see coming together, they see a record of change and a record of accomplishment. >> i've had more 2:00 a.m. phone calls than everybody here put together, mamang life and death decicions. >> look,, i'm in the establishment because my dad, the greatest man alive, was president of the united states. and my brother, who i adore, fantastic brother, was president. fine, i'll take it. >> reporter: center stage this time was ted cruz, now running
>> i would note the last four questions have been, rand, please attack ted. marco, please attack ted. chris, please attack ted. jeb, please attack ted. bruisingng questiti, i may have to leaea the stage. >> the biggest winner of this politically was donald trump. i think if you pick somebody on stage, i think rand paul actually did the best. >> the thing that is most important to me and calls me to run for office is i'm worried about the country and how much debt we're adding. i am the one true fiscal conservative that will look at all spending and that's the only budget. >> reporter: trump's decision not to join his fellow candidates ostensibly because he doesn't like the moderator. >> i'm not a fan of megyn kelly, think she's a third-rate repoer, frankly is not good at what she does. >> reporter: there's bad blood on trump's side no doubt about it, from the last time megyn kelly called him out in a fox news debate.
disgusting animals. your twitter account -- >> only rosie o'donnell. >> no it wasn't. your twitter account -- [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >> for the record, it was well beyond rosie o'donnell. >> reporter: this week trump retweeted this at 6:30 a.m. suggesting kelly is not exactly a credible feminist crusader. he told bill o'reilly, fox news to him. >> y y're not givingg them the portunity -- pushed away. >> you are walking away. >> in this case i was b taken advantage of by fox, i don't like that. >> reporter: it's possible trump is being strategic, using his feud with fox news and megyn kelly as an excuse. >> but i also think there was a political calculation in it, he hampshire. he knows he's ahead in all these
