President Trump — who’s bragged about his own grabbing power — accused newly-announced presidential rival Beto O’Rourke of being a little to handsy.
“I think he’s got a lot of hand movement,” Trump told reporters Thursday in the Oval Office after O’Rourke officially announced his Democratic 2020 campaign for President. “I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’”
The President urged people to check out O’Rourke’s limbs.
“I’ve actually never seen anything quite like it,” he continued. “Study it. I’m sure you’ll agree.”
Trump didn’t specify which gestures he thought were inappropriate, and a White House spokesman declined to comment
A spokeswoman for O’Rourke also declined to comment.
Trump, on the other hand, is well-known for his dexterous activities.
During the 2016 campaign, the President bragged about the size of his hands to imply that a certain other part of his body was of proper proportions. However, a life-sized bronze cast of Trump’s hands at Madam Tussauds wax museum in Midtown shows his hands are actually smaller than average.
In addition to bragging about his hands, Trump has a proclivity for using them in odd ways.
He prompted widespread outrage in the early days of the 2016 campaign when he made obscene hand gestures to make fun of a disabled New York Times reporter. The President has never apologized for doing so.
He was also once caught on a hot mic bragging about how his fame allowed him to “grab” women “by the p—y.”
Additionally, Trump often makes sweeping motions with his hands while trying to get a point across at rallies.
“Bing bing, bong bong, bing bing bing,” Trump said while throwing his hands around in a nonsensical way to describe the way political lobbying works during a campaign stop in Michigan in August 2015.
In light of Trump’s O’Rourke jab, some Twitter users speculated the President may have gone after the 2020 contender’s hands because he’s intimidated by them.
