Donald Trump dusted himself off from the ugly debate on Sunday to hit the campaign trail on Monday in Ambridge, PA, and he did what he always does—talk about famous people he knows and he’s “good friends” with.

This time around it was Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, who’s the type of guy that only Donald Trump would say is a “good guy.”

Trump said exactly that, then he offered up this story that sounds like a straight-up lie:

“We played golf together. He once hit a shot that went dead right into a tree. It was a massive tree like this. The ball hit the tree so hard I swear I said, ‘Ben, within two years, that tree is gonna be dead.’ And you know what? Two years later, I should say this because we have — have a lot of tree lovers here. But two years later, that tree was dead. He is a strong guy and he’s a good guy too. Big Ben.”

Big Ben, ladies and gentleman. What a golfer. What a man.

Perhaps the feelings between the two aren’t mutual, as Ben declined to endorse Donald Trump at the GOP convention in June.
