You know what they say about big hands. Well, apparently it isn’t true, according to potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, anyway.
Although Trump is no beacon of truth, it seems he is actually onto something this time – though he was still being somewhat controversial (oh Donald, what are you like!) as he was talking about how big his penis is. A reminder at this point that this guy could be the future President of America…
According to Live Science, presidential candidate Marco Rubio made claims about Trumps ‘size,’ to which Trump responded:
And he referred to my hands, he said, ‘If they’re small, something else must be small’. I guarantee you, there’s no problem. I guarantee.
I suppose in the run up to the U.S. election, there just isn’t that much to talk about. Forget raising opinions over health care, ISIS, North Korea, domestic poverty, domestic terrorism, gun laws, racial inequality, gender inequality, and wealth inequality – what we really need to talk about is how big our manhood is. Oh, and lets build a wall around Mexico and get them to pay for it as well.
However, to be honest, Trump’s empirical evidence about his pecker may have some scientific truth in it too.
Sex researcher, Debby Herbenick, argues that there are conflicting results regarding the relation of hand size and penis size:
Some studies have found a correlation between finger length and penis size, and others have not.
But these studies look at groups of people, not individuals. Certainly, you’ll find people with big hands and small penises, small hands and big penises, and every other combination in the real world.
So, the truth is – nobody really knows. But, if this portrait is anything to go by, it seems Donald may be telling porkies…
