Scottish beer company offering ‘tiny cans’ for Trump’s ‘tiny hands’
A Scottish beer company is offering customers in the United Kingdom tiny cans of beer made to highlight President Trump’s visit to the United Kingdom.
“Very pleased to introduce our new 330 ml cans,” Tennent’s Lager announced on Thursday. “Perfect timing for a certain high profile state visit to Scotland, as luck would have it… #GrabEmWhileYouCan.”
The picture showcases a child-like hand wearing a large suit featuring an American flag cufflink.
The Glasgow-based company is now offering limited-edition 330 milliliter cans — 11 oz. — in select stores while Trump is meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May.
Trump opponents, comedians and pundits have long taken shots at the size of Trump’s hands to insult him.
The jabs seem to have begun in the 1980s, when Spy magazine editor Graydon Carter called Trump a “short-fingered vulgarian.”
Carter wrote last year that the insult always got under Trump’s skin. He said Trump still sends him letters containing pictures of Trump with circles highlighting the length of his fingers.
Trump’s hands later took center stage during the 2016 Republican presidential primary.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) mocked the size of Trump’s hands on the campaign trail.
“Have you seen his hands? And you know what they say about men with small hands,” Rubio said as the crowd cheered. “You can’t trust them.”
The former president of Mexico, Vincent Fox, also taunted Trump’s hands, saying they were “too small” to build his border wall.
Fox even sold T-shirts featuring a baby Trump with small hands.
Protests have been breaking out across the United Kingdom during Trump’s visit on Friday.
A 20-foot inflatable blimp made to look like a diaper-clad “Trump baby” is being flown over the Parliament building in London during a massive protest.
The blimp is expected to follow Trump to Scotland while he plays golf at his Turnberry course.
One of the country’s largest newspapers, The Scotsman, issued a scathing editorial on Friday, denouncing Trump as an “appalling human being.”
