The Internet collectively imploded this morning after a report from The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the actual size of Donald Trump's hands, a long and hotly-contested topic of debate this election season that led Republican candidates to discuss Trump's genitalia on live television. As it turns out, Trump does indeed have smaller than average hands—smaller than 85 percent of other men's hands, to be precise.
The Hollywood Reporter's editors came to discover that reps from Madame Tussauds Wax Museum took measurements of Trump's hands back in 1997 for a life-sized replica of The Donald they were going to display at the museum's 42nd Street location. And at 7.24 inches long, Trump's hands fall into the 15th percentile of the average man's hand length.
One of those handprints has been hiding in plain sight ever since: on a plaque on the wall as guests exit the museum. Tussauds won't comment on why they've kept Trump's hand on the wall for nearly 20 years — even though the Trump wax figure was retired from the collection in 2011.
The Great Genital Debate of 2016 started when Trump referred to Florida Senator Marco Rubio as "Little Marco." Rubio swung back during a Virginia rally in March, saying that "[Trump's] like 6'2, which is why I don't understand why his hands are the size of someone who is 5'2," Rubio said. "And you know what they say about men with small hands? You can't trust them."
THR also uploaded a very helpful graphic of Trump's hand scaled to actual size. Now you, too, can compare your hand to The Donald's, and upload your results with the #TrumpMyHand.
