'Make it bigger’: Watch ‘overcompensating’ Trump exaggerate every number but his ‘golf scores and official weight’

President Donald Trump's propensity for exaggerating numbers was scathingly mocked by MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes on Tuesday.

"When it comes to Trump and Saudi Arabia, the policy is 'the customer is always right,' which is why President Trump seems to be overcompensating lately when it comes to talking up the number of jobs that are supposedly going to be created by these arms deals we've got," Hayes noted.

Hayes showed clips of Trump saying 40,000 jobs were at stake, then 450,000 jobs, then 500,000 jobs, then 600,000 jobs, then over 1,000,000 jobs.

"You ever notice that ... if there is a sentence with a number in it, Trump cannot complete that sentence without raising the number," Hayes joked.

"Donald Trump has been inflating numbers as long as anyone has been paying attention to him, from his net worth to crowd sizes to the number of jobs created by Saudi arms deals," Hayes continued.

"To the close observer, the behavior seems pathological," He continued. "With the exception of his golf scores and official weight, whenever Trump see a number, he needs to make it bigger."
