We all know that Trump has a big mouth, but what about the issue he seems most concerned about this election season: His hands?
Today, The Hollywood Reporter has discovered his hand size: 7.25 inches, which is officially a bit smaller than the average length for adult males, 7.44 inches. According to The Federalist, they’re actually smaller than 85% of men’s hands. The Hollywood Reporter has also provided a print out for you to see how your hand size compares to Trump’s.
During the Republican primary, arguments over hand size began after Marco Rubio (who Trump calls “Little Marco”) said, “I’ll admit it, he’s taller than me. He’s like 6’2”, which is why I don’t understand why his hands are the size of someone who is 5’2”. And you know what they say about men with small hands? You can’t trust them.”
Trump shot back saying, “Look at those hands, are they small hands? And [Rubio] referred to my hands — ‘If they’re small, something else must be small.’ I guarantee you, there’s no problem. I guarantee.”
Since then, the Trump Has Tiny Hands PAC, which was on a quest to discover the true size of Trump’s hands, has been created. Rumors that his hands were cast in cement molds during the opening of Chicago’s Trump International Hotel and Tower in 1998 were investigated, but the handprints were missing.
Luckily, The Hollywood Reporter found Trump’s hand size at Madame Tussauds New York. In 1997, artists for Madame Tussauds took measurements and imprinted many of Trump’s body parts, including his hands, to build a life-size wax replica of him for the museum. The handprint can still be seen on a plaque on the museum’s wall next to the exit.
It appears that his hands are even smaller than the amount he’s received in campaign donations.
