Well, whattaya know. Turns out it wasn’t the size of Donald Trump’s hands–or other appendages–that we should have wondered about. Instead, it’s the fact that he may be a genius at erecting buildings, but not much when it comes to what resides below his belt line.
A report from Politico quotes a section from the 1993 biography “Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump,” in which this was revealed:
“Want to know where Trump inherited his entrepreneurial bent? Gwenda Blair traces it to his grandfather, who ran a series of restaurants in the Klondike that featured some of the best food in town, as well as private areas where ‘sporting ladies’ could ‘entertain’ miners. Who was really doing the deals that made Trump famous? Wayne Barrett will tell you the only signature that really mattered on a contract belonged to Trump’s father, Fred. What broke up Trump’s first marriage? Harry Hurt III writes that Ivana ‘confided to female friends that Donald had difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection.’”
Wait a minute! What was that? Trump’s first marriage broke up because he couldn’t manage to maintain an erection? Hmm…that might explain all the bragging about how rich he is. It might also explain why he felt a need to say that he was up to par in the lower regions despite his tiny hands.
As you might guess, Trump was not pleased with Hurt’s assertion. Hurt recalls:
“Prior to the publication of my book, he and his lawyer, Jay Goldberg, came to scream at the folks at Norton, mainly about Ivana’s divorce deposition… And finally Donald got so frustrated, he jumped up and he pulls a tape recorder out of his coat pocket. He said, ‘I’ve been recording all this,’ and our little lawyer looked at him, and Goldberg just turned like this napkin, white. ‘You’ve been recording this and you didn’t tell us? That’s not right.’ And I’m going, ‘Yeah.’
“They walked out and I said, ‘He can’t sue us now. He’s not going to sue us because they just shot themselves in the foot.’”
Can you see the attack ads that Super PACs supporting Hillary will run as a result of this? And even if they don’t, they can always institute an unofficial whispering campaign that will keep the issue front and center all the way to Election Day.
Maybe Trump says Hillary is always playing the “woman card” because his own deck of cards is not stacked very well.
