Okay, if anyone else did this, you’d immediately have his brain checked for tumors … or prion disease … or unexploded ordnance.  But when Donald Trump does it, most people just shrug.  Yes, we have a president whose word is literally worthless. Isn’t that fun?

Here’s the latest, from The Washington Post:

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.”

Okay, self-serving and stupid, but not pants-sh*tting crazy.

Wait for it …

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.”

So he had the exact same conversation with two separate people? Unlikely, but …

Uh … hmm …

Four days before the Hanukkah receptions, Trump spoke about a conversation with Republican financier and casino magnate 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.’ ”

And in September, Trump referred to having a similar conversation with “people.”

What the ever-living f*#k? How is this real?

You can see the video of Trump’s “recollections” here. It’s simply extraordinary.

Of course, I happen to think the best thing Trump has done for the Jewish people is inviting a pastor to a Hanukkah celebration who thinks all Jews are damned to hell. Second place? Demanding that all retail clerks say “Merry Christmas!” to their faces — whether they like it or not.

Because that’s respect, haters.

* resident is just batshrt crazy he doesn’t care about that it’s all about optics’s. I’m sure that he would volunteer to strike a match to light a menorah let alone have a clue when it comes to his “Jewish friends “. I’m sure that he probably doesn’t have any Jewish friends except for the ones that handle his money




If the ass said absolutely nothing about Jews or any other group of people defined by their religion or ethnicity he would be doing them a huge favor!
