The History Behind Donald Trump "Small Hands"

The Republican presidential nominee insisted that his hands are Strong and of Good size in a political debate.

The history behind Donald Trump's 'small hands' dates back to more than a quarter of a century ago when Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair referred him as a ¡°short-fingered vulgarian¡± in the pages of Spy magazine. Till today, Carter receives occasional envelopes from Trump with photos of his palm; generally they are from tear sheets of magazines. In all the photos, his palms are circled in gold Sharpie in a valiant effort to highlight the length of his fingers, and also they are marked with words in gold Sharpie: ¡°See, not so short!¡± But to Carter, the fingers still look abnormally stubby. Once he returned some pictures with a note saying, ¡°Actually, quite short.¡± However, Trump believes he has good-sized hands, because his supporters tell him, you have great hands, very strong hands. Your hands are fine and quite normal. Even in an article (Titled as: Donald Trump Gets What He Wants) published in GQ magazine (May 1984), Graydon Carter described Trump's hands as "The six-foot-two-inch frame is trim but well-nourished. The hands are small and neatly groomed." Recently, a pun ad declared: ¡°needs "a president who can grasp the complexity of the world and hold off the decline of a great nation."
