“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 — form his repeated hands-wide-out shrugs to his infamous mocking imitation of a reporter with a disability.
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.
