It is not, as a rule, charitable to poke fun at another person’s physical shortcomings. However, when that person is both a public figure and a politician who actively and continually draws on the tenets of racism, misogyny and homophobia as a campaign platform, certain concessions can be made.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, it therefore must be said, has shrimp fingers. This is not a new revelation by any means. Earlier this week, Washington Free Beacon blogger Andrew Stiles rocketed the term into the news cycle with a simple, straightforward tweet.
Good grief. With a response like this you'd think I asked Mr @realDonaldTrump abt the length of his fingers or something important like that— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) January 30, 2016
Trump was once called a “short-fingered vulgarian” by the brilliant minds of the now-deceased Spy Magazine, and for good reason. Here is a collection of the most important photos of the man who is leading the Republican presidential candidates, and the fingers that have gotten him to where he is now.
