Trump has described the same conversation about Israel four times. Each time, the name of his Jewish friend changed.

Touting his accomplishments during a second Hanukkah reception at the White House on Wednesday, President Trump recalled a conversation he said he had with 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 to applause from the audience. “I think that’s true.”

It was remarkably similar to a story Trump told at the first White House Hanukkah reception just four hours prior, this time recalling a conversation he said he had with 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.”

In the video above, you can watch Trump tell the same story four times, naming different people each time.

1. Most likely, he had that conversation with none of them.

3. Trump does not have to worry about keeping track of his lies.

Trump does not have to worry about keeping track of his lies.

He just makes up new ones and carries on.
