Small hands Donald Trump says his mitts can drive the golf ball 285 yards


Does Donald Trump have small hands? Marco Rubio seems to think so. But if Trump does, the real estate mogul and Republican presidential frontrunner contends that he wouldn't be able to drive the golf ball as far as he does.

"Those hands can hit a golf ball 285 yards,” Trump said during a Friday campaign rally in Michigan.

Rubio started the line of attack -- if you can all it that -- on Wednesday in a stump -- no pun intended -- speech ahead of the Thursday night GOP debate in Detroit.

"He is 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"," Rubio joked. "Have you seen his hands? And you know what they say about men with small hands... "

The crowd about lost it, knowing the insinuation about Trump's genitalia.

Rubio finished, "...You can't trust them!"

Trump's Friday response about his small hands followed on Trump's response to the Rubio jab during the debate. Trump was more direct about in defending his manhood.

"Look at those hands," Trump said, holding them up for the camera and audience to see. "Are they small hands? And he referred to my hands -- if they are small, something else must be small. ... I guarantee you there is no problem. I guarantee you."

Alright then.
