Donald Trump: Do this man’s fingers look like “cocktail franks?”

Lawsuits and insults are what Donald Trump would threaten every time Spy magazine would take a shot at him.

Instead, most of the time he had to watch with gritted teeth as they repeatedly called him a “short-fingered vulgarian,” a 28-year-old characterization that retained so much traction it reemerged during Thursday’s Republican debate.

Spy’s Graydon Carter delighted in repeating the phrase “just to drive him a little bit crazy,” he wrote in Vanity Fair.

Vanity Fair went on to probe the long-standing feud between Trump and Spy magazine.

Despite his claim in 1989 that the American people were clamoring for him to run for president, Spy cited a poll that said about 4 percent of people wished he’d run.

In April of 1991, they relish in calling him a “deadbeat short-fingered vulgarian,” in a caption, never calling him by name.

Vanity Fair went on to have it’s own fun with Trump vertically challenged fingers in a photo spread that calls out his “cocktail frank” fingers, his “five chicken-tender-like appendages.”
