Sorry, Donald! Scientists say finger size really does matter

Just a little tip for aspiring politicians: Size really does matter.

Finger size, that is.

The size of Trump’s manhood has been a hot debate topic of late, ever since rival GOP contender Marco Rubio said that Trump’s small fingers mean he’s got a small something else.

It sounds like total junk science, but there is a correlation between hand size and penis size — it’s just not the correlation you’d expect.

According to a 2011 study in the Asian Journal of Andrology, guys with shorter index fingers than ring fingers are better endowed than guys with bigger index fingers.

The study was conducted on men who were hospitalized for urological surgery. While the men were knocked out, scientists — with consent, of course —  measured their junk.

Strange as it may sound, there’s actually a scientific explanation for this bizarre correlation.

Prenatal testosterone levels affect both penis size and finger length, the researchers note.

The politicians’ public penis parley began last month at a Rubio rally.

“He’s always calling me ‘little Marco,’” the Florida senator said.

“I’ll admit he’s taller than me. He’s like 6-foot-2, which is why I don’t understand why he has hands the size of someone who’s 5-foot-2. Have you seen his hands? And you know what they say about men with small hands?”

The crowd roared in approval and Rubio waited for them to quiet down and added: “You can’t trust ’em!”

On Thursday, Trump fired back at Rubio’s attacks on his package during a debate.

Despite Rubio’s cover-up that the comment reflected on the candidate’s trustworthiness, Trump said the implication was that “if they’re small, something else must be small.”

He continued, “I guarantee you there’s no problem.”

If Spy magazine founder and current Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Graydon Carter is right, though, there may be.

Back in the 1980s, the groundbreaking magazine referred to Trump as a “short-fingered vulgarian.”

The thin-skinned businessman won’t let that jibe go and to this day still sends Carter pictures of himself with his hands circled in gold Sharpie and a message, “See, not so short!”

Three decades later, Carter stands by his assertion, as he explained in a 2015 Vanity Fair column. The nominee’s digits, he says, are “actually, quite short.”
