... They all said, ‘Sir, cut him loose. He’s killing us.’ The senators, very loyal senators. They’re very loyal people. ‘Sir, cut him loose. He’s killing us, sir. Cut him loose, sir.’ I must’ve gotten half of the senators. I said, ‘No, I can’t do that. It’s unfair to him. And it’s unfair to the family. He didn’t do anything wrong. They’re made up stories.’ They were all made up stories. He didn’t do anything wrong. ‘Cut him loose, sir.’ I said, ‘No, I won’t do that.’ ...

But they had me down the day before Washington Post, ABC poll, down 17 points. I called up a real pollster. I said, ‘What is that?’ ‘Sir, that’s called a suppression poll. I think you’re going to win Wisconsin, Sir.’ I said, ‘But why do they make it four or five points?’ ‘Because then people vote.’ But when you’re down 17, they say, ‘Hey, I’m not going to waste my time....
This is classical Trump, he repeats the fantasy that he has and he tells people that other people have said these things to him. Some people do this as a coping mechanism but they don't say it to other people. If you have ever thought or said to yourself the things you wished you had said, that is what is going on here.
...Two months ago, we had a massive crowd come down to Washington. I said, ‘What are they there for.’ ‘Sir, they’re there for you.’ We have nothing to do with it...

Also people lie and say they responded to something, I told them this or that. Lying about such things is normal though I don't know how frequent this kind of lying is. But Trump's lies cross the line when he fabricates people saying things to him they didn't say. It's like calling up gossip magazines claiming he was John Barron, Trump's agent, and describing Trump in fantastical ways.
The 'tell' is all the "Sirs". He always starts fake quotes with "Sir".
