Trump ironically slams Beto O’Rourke about his very active hand movements

President Donald Trump has thrown his first shot against newly announced 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke—and it was about his hands.

The president made the remarks on Thursday morning while meeting with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar at the White House.

O’Rourke’s hand movements during a video he posted online early Thursday that announced he was running became a focus of online fascination.

“I think he’s got a lot of hand movement. I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said ‘is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’” the president said. “So I’ve never seen hand movement. I watched him a little while this morning, doing I assume it was some kind of a news conference. I’ve actually never seen anything quite like it. Study it, I’m sure you’ll agree.”

The president was not alone in noticing O’Rourke’s hands in the video, but his knock on the 2020 hopeful’s hands struck many people online as ironic, considering his own hand movements during speeches are well known.

Trump has a long history of criticizing people for things he himself is guilty of.

Maybe Trump will unveil a hands-related nickname for O’Rourke soon?
