Quote
"Normal," the Republican presidential front-runner insisted. "Strong." "Good size." "Great." "Fine." "Slightly large, actually."

...

"My hands are normal hands," he said. Recounting the feedback he was getting in the aftermath of Rubio's jibe, Trump said, "I was on line shaking hands with supporters and one of the supporters said, ‘Mr. Trump, you have strong hands, you have good size hands.’ And then another one would say, ‘Oh, you have great hands, Mr. Trump. I had no idea.’"

...

"I mean, people were writing, ‘How are Mr. Trump’s hands?’ My hands are fine," Trump said. "My hands are normal. Slightly large, actually. In fact, I buy a slightly smaller than large-size glove, okay? But I did this because everybody was saying to me, ‘Oh, your hands are very nice, they’re normal.’"

I absolutely love that this is a topic of conversation for a potential POTUS. I mean I don't... but I do.

He described them as "good size", "slightly large", "slightly smaller than large" and "normal".

If I was campaigning against Trump I'd just keep hitting him with questions about his hands until he explodes.

My favourite part of all of this is that the whole thing traces back to a 30 year old joke insult from Spy magazine - which was essentially a high-minded version of National Lampoon. It was never portrayed as fact, and, yet, it's one of those things that just stuck.

I didn't know that's where it came from. Thought it was original material. There goes all the respect that I had for Rubio.

I can't imagine too many people haven't seen John Oliver's analysis of Trump, but its pretty priceless.

Just read Rob Ford is sedated for his pain, I guess Dear Rob is on his way to the happy hunting grounds. Kind of makes me feel sad. All the laughes he provided were priceless.

Agreed. No matter what your opinions of him as a mayor (or even as a person), he's still a human being. Have some respect for that.

So, yeah, Donald Trump is going to be the Republican Nominee for the Presidency.

And good things are happening to the Maple Leafs. I'm not saying the two are somehow cosmically linked but I wouldn't rule it out either.

Too bad, a contested convention sounded fun (at least for those watching from the outside).

It sounded fun for those watching from the inside too.

The republican primary has just lost a bunch of its entertainment value.  Now they are just a bunch of a**holes.

I'm genuinely surprised that he's not wearing a sombrero.

How do people take this guy seriously?

It's like a big practical joke.
