Donald Trump Tells Presidential Debate About His Penis Size In Election's Most Surreal Moment Yet

Donald Trump has told the world about the size of his penis as the absurdity of his presidential campaign grows.

At another august debate for the Republican presidential candidates, Trump, the frontrunner, insisted his penis was not small during a spat with rival Marco Rubio that genuinely happened and you are not dreaming.

The discussion about his penis stems from the issue of whether he has small hands - surely the dumbest "issue" to dog a political candidate to ever stand for office anywhere.

The picture somehow does not capture it

Trump has apparently been sending photos to journalist Graydon Carter for 25 years to prove his hands are not small, after Carter referred to him a "small handed vulgarian" in print.

The small handed vulgarian told the Thursday night debate audience: "Look at those hands. Are they small hands?

"He referred to my hands, 'if they're small, something else must be small.' I guarantee you there's no problem. I guarantee."

It follows a surreal weak in the US election, which saw Trump win endorsements from mainstream Republicans and win seven of the 12 Super Tuesday states, despite pledging to build a wall to keep Mexicans out and ban Muslims from entering the US.

But things getting even more surreal proved too much for some.

Our colleagues in the US felt the need to add an editor's note to the article to draw attention back to the real issues:

Editor's note: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.

The hands issue has clearly riled Trump who has so proven largely impervious to his opponents' attacks. Speaking at a rally in Ohio on Tuesday, Trump said of Rubio: "He said I have small hands but I've always heard people say, 'Donald, you have the most beautiful hands.'"

Writing in Vanity Fair, Carter said: "To this day, I receive the occasional envelope from Trump. There is always a photo of him -- generally a tear sheet from a magazine.

"On all of them he has circled his hand in gold Sharpie in a valiant effort to highlight the length of his fingers."

It is unclear whether the size of Trump's penis will now become a major campaign topic.
