Ever since Spy magazine first labeled Donald Trump a “short-fingered vulgarian” in the 1980s, the licensing maven and presidential candidate has been pushing back, insisting with trademark bravado that his fingers are, in fact, “not so short." He has even claimed, though never in the presence of rulers, yardsticks, or tape measures, that “my fingers are long and beautiful, as, has been well-documented, are various other parts of my body.”
Now, thanks to months of exhaustive research, VF.com has uncovered photographic evidence that we believe will settle the question of Trump’s finger length once and for all. Scroll down to see for yourself. (Note: this project was underwritten in part by a generous grant from the California Baby Carrot Growers Association.)
