Video: Best headline to come out of last night’s debate

The honors, if that’s the right word, go to CNN and staff reporter Gregory Krieg, who, according to his bio, covers “buzzy political news.”

Here’s the headline: “Donald Trump defends size of his penis.”

Now the size of a candidate’s “endowment” is not usually a metric that helps voters gauge his suitability to serve high public office — at least not literally. Nevertheless, The Donald went there last night:

“Look at those hands, are they small hands?” the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination said, raising them for viewers to see. “And, he [Marco Rubio] referred to my hands — ‘if they’re small, something else must be small.’ I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee.”

Rubio in recent days revived a decades-old old insult, mocking Trump for having relatively slight hands.

“He’s always calling me Little Marco. And I’ll admit he’s taller than me. He’s like 6’2, which is why I don’t understand why his hands are the size of someone who is 5’2,” Rubio said in Virginia on Sunday. “And you know what they say about men with small hands? You can’t trust them.”

In fairness to Rubio, the leap from hand size to penis size was all Trump’s.
