PAC seeks to raise awareness of Donald Trump's 'tiny baby hands'

A new political action committee is joining the fight over the size of Donald Trump's hands.

The Oregon-based committee, called Trump Has Tiny Hands PAC, is a group of citizens seeking to educate others about Trump's "tiny baby hands," according to the committee's Twitter account — an account that appears to exist for the sole purpose of making fun of Trump's hands. 

The committee's founder, Portland activist Henry Kraemer, filed paperwork Monday to launch the committee. Among other activities, the committee launched a petition on the progressive website calling on Trump to "release (his) official hand measurements to the American public."

The size of Trump's hands has been a topic of note for nearly 30 years, after the satirical magazine Spy took to referring to the real estate mogul as a "short-fingered vulgarian." Editor Graydon Carter wrote in Vanity Fair in October that, for the past 25 years, Trump has sent him occasional press photos of himself with his hands circled and the words "See, not so short!" written in gold Sharpie.

But during last week's debate, Trump sought to put to rest any question about the size of his hands, or... anything else.
