Forget Trump’s tax returns (okay, don’t): One new SuperPAC wants his hand measurements.

Americans Against Insecure Billionaires With Tiny Hands PAC, a parody political action committee, has released real– yes, real —ads in Washington, D.C. that demand the Republican nominee to release the exact size of his hands.

“It’s a dangerous time for Americans. We need a president who can grasp the complexity of the world, and hold off the decline of a great nation,” a somber-sounding narrator says.

“If the White House phone rings at 3 a.m., will his little hands even pick up the receiver?” one voter from the ad asks, as a set of baby hands stumbles over a phone. “How can he create jobs if his hands are too small to shake on the deal?” another voter wonders.

Tough questions like these demand answers.
