Donald Trump often tells ‘sir’ stories in which they can never be fact-checked, and he never uses a name to back up his version of events. CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale explained Trump’s sir stories last year: “Lots of people do call Trump “sir,” of course. But the word seems to pop into his head more frequently when he is inventing or exaggerating a conversation than when he is faithfully relaying one. A “sir” is a flashing red light that he is speaking from his imagination rather than his memory.” Well, this isn’t exactly a sir story, but it’s pretty close.

Trump held a super-spreader MAGA rally in Greenville, NC, today and suggested that “someone” asked him the other day who is more famous than he is.

“Someone said to me the other day, ‘you’re the most famous person in the world by far.’ I said, ‘no, I’m not’ … they said, ‘who’s more famous?’ I said, ‘Jesus Christ,'” Trump said.



And of course, the crowd cheered.

Twitter users weighed in:

In the middle of answering a question about the ongoing trade war with China last year, Trump turned from reporters, looked to the heavens, and proclaimed, “I am the chosen one.” After a backlash ensued over his remark, Trump claimed that he was joking. I don’t think so.
