Yes, Donald Trump went there. And he lied, too.
TRUMP: I have to say this. He hit my hands. Nobody has ever hit my hands. I've never heard of this one. Look at those hands. Are they small hands? And, he referred to my hands - if they're small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there's no problem. I guarantee you.
In fact, Trump has been obsessed with accusations about his short fingers for almost 30 years. As Vox explains:
In 1988, Spy, a satirical magazine based in New York, coined an epithet for Trump that it would gleefully repeat for eight years: "short-fingered vulgarian."
..."To this day, I receive the occasional envelope from Trump," Graydon Carter, a founder of Spy and now the editor of Vanity Fair, wrote in 2015.
"There is always a photo of him — generally a tear sheet from a magazine. On all of them he has circled his hand in gold Sharpie in a valiant effort to highlight the length of his fingers. I almost feel sorry for the poor fellow because, to me, the fingers still look abnormally stubby."

……oh, I guess he won’t have to.
Is there anyone, even hardcore Republicans, who think the GOP candidates are not making themselves look ridiculous and gone to far with the Don Rickles insults?
