One Response to Trumps tiny hands, but what else? – Liam Pringle

  1. Mr. Jackson says:

    In the first case, the second premise could be ascertained, but even then only to a degree of probability….

    The second one needn’t begin with whether or not Trump tells the truth (which may make the argument stronger). You could connect the argument back to the first set of premises, and acknowledge that Trump has apparently proportional-to-his-body sized hands. Again, if a correlation between hand and penis size could be ascertained (within a margin of error), one could conclude the truth of Trump’s debate boast.
