President Donald Trump’s attack on former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) for “so much hand movement” while he speaks was another example of Trump insulting others for something he is known for. And Twitter was so happy to remind everyone of that.
Trump told reporters Thursday in the Oval Office that O’Rourke, who just announced that he’s running for president, uses his hands so much that it might indicate he’s “crazy.”
“I think he’s got a lot of hand movement. I’ve never seen so much hand movement,” Trump said. “I said, ’Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’” He encouraged people to “study it.”
So Twitter did and demonstrated that Trump does indeed have some of the wildest and most frequent hand gestures of any president in recent memory — from his repeated hands-wide-out shrugs to his infamous mocking imitation of a reporter with a disability.
Twitter users also noted Trump’s roaming hands, which he has boasted can grab women’s genitals.

Further to the above, I just remembered this: Trump once said he got a lot of exercise by—wait for it—moving his hands around while speaking. https://t.co/xIJOGVbHSN

At least Beto’s hand movements don’t include grabbing p%#$&, so he’s got that going for him.

This is the hand movement I’ll never forget. To many of us this when he became unfit for the presidency. pic.twitter.com/vY9iNUhPX4
