Wait … what? Sadly, that was in reference to the Republican presidential debate last night. I never thought I’d type this phrase in regards to such a debate but: Penis comparisons ensued. No, for real.
This is an actual headline. On CNN. In regards to a presidential election. God help us all. https://t.co/aM0jX1v5ir

Good grief. Trump is getting the headlines, but did Rubio start it? More from CNN:
“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 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 any event, two oh-so-wrongs don’t make a right. Please. For humanity: No more debate dick jokes. Did you learn nothing from Anthony Weiner? No one wants to see your junk and no one wants to HEAR about it either. Right, fellow Americans?
Political discourse and journalism at their respective bests. Proud to be an American. https://t.co/Pf8en9vt3g

Oh dear. And we thought the “yoga” stuff was weird enough.
