Excuse Me Trump, What Does Your Penis Have To Do With Politics?

In case you missed it, it was a circus last night at the Republican presidential debate in Detroit.

Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump nearly turned the GOP debate into a "literal dick-measuring contest."

It was a vulgar and absurd debate that literally hit below the belt as Trump bragged about the size of his manhood. In fact, one site even declared, Trump's penis the winner of the GOP debate. Sigh.

For context, Trump was responding to rival Marco Rubio's insinuation that he has small hands, and as a result, a small penis.

Trump was eager to speak up and defend the size of his hands and his member. He said, "he referred to my hands, 'if they're small, something else must be small.' I guarantee you there's no problem. I guarantee."

Oh Trump, thou doth protest too much. Why are you trying so hard to overcompensate to prove your 'greatness' and masculinity?

But I have no intention of arguing one way or another if Trump's manhood is above average or not.

Imagine female leaders on stage talking about who has the biggest boobs? Can't picture it? Of course not.

I think most of us were simply stunned that it was even a topic of conversation at all. It begs the question, why the hell is he bringing this up on stage at a debate?

While at first one may laugh at his entertaining and shocking admission. You can't help but roll your eyes and think 'WTF? Why is he even talking about this? Is this really happening?'

You would expect such a silly declaration as a spoof on Saturday Night Live, but not on stage in front of millions of viewers.

A word of advice, Trump: no one wants to hear about your manhood. The size of your manhood or how well your manhood works. Ew.

Your penis has nothing to do with making you qualified to be a great leader, to win the Republican nomination, or the presidential election.

Imagine female leaders on stage talking about who has the biggest boobs? Or female leaders reassuring viewers that they have no issues down there. Can't picture it? Of course not, because it wouldn't happen.

The male Republican candidates should leave the bawdy jokes and innuendos for the locker room. Or better yet, not mention them at all.

This is about electing a leader, not about the size of anyone's manhood.

This farce has gone on too long. The sophomoric Republican debates have gone from bad to worse and last night's "Cock Fight" debate simply catapulted the candidates even further down in the credibility and respectability department.

This is about electing a leader, not about the size of anyone's manhood.

Stick to talking about politics, policies and your stance on national and international issues. As Trump hurls insults and hits below the belt, he is taking the other candidates down with him.

Hillary Clinton summed up many viewers' sentiments perfectly last night.

I know many fellow Canadians are scratching their heads at U.S. politics right now. Many can't comprehend the nasty politicking, the personal attacks and the juvenile, obnoxious rants taking place during their campaigning. Thank goodness our leader is the anti-Trump.

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

For the record, Trump, the true measure of a man isn't about the size of your hands or manhood. No one gives a damn about your body parts. What matters is the kind of man you are, what you say, what you do, what you stand for and how you treat people.
