Florida Senator Marco Rubio was campaigning in Salem, Virginia on Sunday when the Senator made a clever small penis joke about Republican presidential front-runner, Donald Trump.
First, Rubio addressed the billionaire’s attack on his so-called “sweating” problem, saying Trump “doesn’t sweat because his pores are clogged from spray tan.”
Then Rubio hit trump with this zinger:
“Donald Trump isn’t gonna make America great, he’s gonna make America orange.” he said.
After going after “The Donald’s” odd complexion, Rubio then made this observation about Trump.
“Now the other thing he says, he’s always calling me “little Marco.” And I’ll admit he’s taller the me, he’s like 6’2, which is why I don’t understand why his hands are the size of someone who’s 5’2,” said Rubio.
The Florida senator then hit Trump south of the border with a classic penis joke.
“And you know what they say about guys with small hands,” Rubio said with a smile, prompting stunned laughter from the crowd.
After a brief pause he added: “You can’t trust ’em!” The crowd responded with applause.
Here’s the YouTube video.
That wasn’t the first time someone has gone after Trump’s fun sized digits. Over 30 years ago, Graydon Carter, who’s now a writer for Vanity Fair, wrote an article in which he described Trump as a “Short-Fingered Vulgarian.” Carter recently revisited his feud with the billionaire, writing:
“Like so many bullies, Trump has skin of gossamer. He thinks nothing of saying the most hurtful thing about someone else, but when he hears a whisper that runs counter to his own vainglorious self-image, he coils like a caged ferret. Just to drive him a little bit crazy, I took to referring to him as a ‘short-fingered vulgarian’ in the pages of Spy magazine. That was more than a quarter of a century ago.
To this day, I receive the occasional envelope from Trump. 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. The most recent offering arrived earlier this year, before his decision to go after the Republican presidential nomination.
Like the other packages, this one included a circled hand and the words, also written in gold Sharpie: ‘See, not so short!’ I sent the picture back by return mail with a note attached, saying, ‘Actually, quite short.’ Which I can only assume gave him fits.”
The writer’s story about receiving packages containing article clippings from the mogul makes perfect sense given Trump’s strange morning routine. Here’s a YouTube video telling you more about that.
Rubio’s small digit attack is just another example of how Trump’s managed to make his opponents play his game. Regardless of who wins the GOP nomination, it’s clear that Trump’s opened a new door for future politicians, and that door leads straight to the lowest level of political discourse.
