We’re talking, of course, about his hands.

“I think he’s got a lot of hand movement…I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?” asked Trump, referencing the prodigious gesticulation in O’Rourke’s announcement video.

It’s a curious line of attack for a man whose public political career has been largely defined by his hands, whether using them to disgracefully mock a disabled reporter or to engage in a manhood-size competition with “Little” Marco Rubio, or insisting over and over that his hands are in fact very big and tremendous and not at all a deeply rooted source of shame for the superficial real estate tycoon:
