Before they even took their first commercial break at Thursday’s Fox News Republican presidential debate, front-runner Donald Trump bragged about the size of his manhood.
Moderator Bret Baier questioned Sen. Marco Rubio about how the GOP campaign has devolved to the point where the Florida Republican even called into question the size of Trump’s hands — and by extension his “package” — at a recent Roanoke, Virginia, rally.
Rubio’s response was that the real estate developer had personally mocked reporters, debate moderators and every other candidate during the past year.
“If there’s anyone who has ever deserved to be attacked that way it’s Donald Trump,” he said. “I would much prefer to have a policy debate. I hope that’s what we have tonight.”
Trump jumped into the fray.
“Look at those hands, are they small hands?” he said displaying them. “And he referred to my hands — if they’re small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there’s no problem.”
Watch the clip via Fox News.
Howard Kurtz, host of Fox News Channel’s “Media Buzz,” was one of many who tweeted an observation. Needless to say, Trump’s comment set off a flurry of responses:
Trump, parrying Rubio slam on small hands, becomes first presidential candidate in history to refer to the size of his package #GOPDebate

And here we are. Less than 10 minutes in and Trump is boasting about his penis. Will there be bumper stickers and buttons to match?

Trump: at least 7.5 inches

I hope, against experience, that TV people will use some discretion on replaying Trump’s “hands” comments. #GOPdebate

Gonna be weird when Hillary runs rings around Trump at the debates and he wins anyway, thanks to a killer “Check out my hands” answer
