Drumpfs tiny hands confirmed


Co8oYFCUIAAdYw2Der Hollywood-Reporter hat den Hand-Abdruck von Drumpf in Tussauds Wachsfigurenkabinett nachgemessen und kann bestätigen: Drumpfs Hände sind kleiner als der Durchschnitt. Genau: Der Durchschnitt liegt bei 18,89 Zentimetern, Drumpfs Hände messen laut Abdruck 18,41cm. Ich glaube nicht, dass das wirklich als „tiny“ durchgeht, aber immerhin – für den Joke reicht's.

in 1997, a team of wax figure artists from Madame Tussauds visited Trump's office in Trump Tower in New York to take measurements and make impressions of various body parts — including his hands — to help them construct a life-size wax replica for the museum's New York branch on 42nd Street. One of those handprints has been hiding in plain sight ever since: on a plaque on the wall as guests exit the museum. Tussauds won't comment on why they've kept Trump's hand on the wall for nearly 20 years — even though the Trump wax figure was retired from the collection in 2011 — but it's clearly been a boon for business these past months, with scores of tourists flocking to the Times Square museum to compare digits with Trump's.

The scientifically objective results: Trump does indeed have hands just below average size, particularly for a man standing 6-foot-2. According to various human anatomy websites, the average-height American adult male (5-foot-10) has an average hand size (measured from the tip of the middle finger to the wrist) of 7.44 inches. Trump's measures 7.25 inches.
