Twitter was awash with President Donald Trump’s lies early Saturday, thanks in part to conservative attorney George Conway.

The lawyer helped the #PresidentPinocchiosTopLies hashtag trend on the social media platform after Preet Bharara ― the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York who was fired by Trump in 2017 ― asked followers to identify Trump’s “most demonstrably provable intentional lie as POTUS.”

Conway, who has become a fierce critic of the president despite his wife Kellyanne Conway’s role as White House counselor, suggested it would be “a 500-way tie.” By The Washington Post’s reckoning, Trump has so far told more than 12,000 lies since taking office in January 2017.

There’s going to be a 500-way tie.

Conway shared some examples of Trump’s tallest tales:

But okay—how about when he claimed that he didn’t say “Tim Apple,” but actually said “Tim Cook Apple,” really fast, which, of course, he didn’t, and then when everyone laughed at him because it was on tape, he said he intentionally said “Tim Apple” to save time.

There was the insane lie Trump told in front of the Pakistani PM that PM Modi of India had asked Trump to mediate Kashmir, which no Indian gov’t would ever do. India flipped out, basically calling Trump a liar.

Then there was the time, in the course of lying his ass off about some internal campaign polls, Trump told George Stephanopolous that “I like the truth. I'm actually a very honest guy.”

“We could spend days doing this,” Conway tweeted, before posting this “all-in-one” supercut to prove his point:

Here’s an all-in-one.

Conway later posted the Pinocchio-themed hashtag and it predictably took on a life of its own:

"I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."#PresidentPinocchiosTopLies
