Rubio attacks Trump's small hands

Rubio attacks Trump’s short fingers


Marco Rubio is attacking rival Donald Trump over one of his biggest weaknesses: his short fingers.

Rubio pointed out Trump’s “small hands” in comparison to the billionaire’s height at a campaign rally on Sunday night.
“You know what they say about men with small hands … you can’t trust 'em!” Rubio said.

Comments on Trump’s fingers have been known to set him off.

In a November 2015 column for Vanity Fair, editor Graydon Carter detailed how the Republican front-runner responds to criticism about his fingers.

“Just to drive him a little bit crazy, I took to referring to him as a ‘short-fingered vulgarian’ in the pages of Spy magazine,” Carter wrote. “That was more than a quarter of a century ago.”

In 1988, Spy magazine referred to Trump as the "short-fingered vulgarian" in nearly every story.

Trump defended himself in the New York Post, saying “my fingers are long and beautiful, as, has been well-documented, are various other parts of my body.”

Carter wrote that he still receives occasional photos from Trump in response to the criticism decades ago.

“On all of [the photos] he has circled his hand in gold Sharpie in a valiant effort to highlight the length of his fingers,” Carter said. “I almost feel sorry for the poor fellow because, to me, the fingers still look abnormally stubby.”

10. Rubio seems to be honing his act for his next career: standup comedy.

It's horrifying to think these characters are running for President of the United States.
