Pres. Donald Trump’s a good liar. Famously. However, whether it’s stress or dementia, he’s slipping. Even he has a hard time keeping his lies straight.
When he’s at his orgasmic rallies, Trump loves to bring up stories of praise heaped on him by friends. Recently, he began telling a story about a “Jewish friend.” You know every corrupt Republican has a Jewish friend, right? Here’s the deal: he’s telling the exact same story over and over (well, four times so far) and calls the “friend” by a different name every time.
On at least four occasions over the past three months, President Trump has told the same story about his Israel policies featuring a different person each time.https://t.co/9Yai5xbh6u pic.twitter.com/Gscgskw3Og

He’s claiming that this “friend” has praised his termination of the Iran nuclear deal. The first time we’re aware of him telling the story is in September, when he told the story without naming a name, instead opting for just “people.”
“I said to people, what is more important, the Golan Heights or the capital of Jerusalem by moving our embassy there,” Trump said. “He said, neither sir, what you’ve done in Iran is more important,” the president added.
Note how he changed the plural “people” to “he” in one breath.
The story came up again on December 7. However, this time Trump claimed that the “he” in the story was Republican financier Sheldon Adelson.
“I said to Sheldon, ‘What do you think was bigger? … Israel and the embassy going in, and it became Jerusalem, the capital of Israel? Or the Golan Heights?’ He said, ‘Neither.’ ”
On December 11, the story got told twice at two different White House Hanukkah receptions. The first “friend” named was New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
“I said, ‘Bob Kraft, which is bigger? Which is more important to the Jewish people?’ He said, ‘Neither.’ I said, ‘What does that mean?’ He said, ‘What you did by terminating the Iran nuclear deal is bigger than both.’ I think that’s true,” Trump said.
Lo and behold, four hours later this buffoon told the SAME STORY again, but this time he invoked his buddy real estate developer Charles Kushner.
“I said, ‘Charlie, let me ask you, what’s bigger for the Jewish people: giving the embassy to Jerusalem, it becomes the capital of Israel. What’s bigger? That or the Golan Heights?’ He said, ‘Neither.’ I said, ‘What does that mean?’ He said, ‘The biggest thing of all is what you did by ending the Iran nuclear catastrophe’,” Trump said.
He got an applause every time. Every. Single Time.
