At 53:30 in this ‘What Really Happened Show’, a man with a medical background questions how the rabbi in the San Diego synagogue shooting could have had lost his index finger, and then be flailing it during the press conference. The pain would be unbearable from the throbbing. He says:
“I broke my finger once, and it was excruciating pain. You’re just guarding it, the throbbing, and it’s terrible. [He was ] waiving it around, giving interviews, laughing and stuff with his two fingers blown off his hand. It’s ridiculous.”
He goes on to say the doctor who did CPR, whose wife was killed, didn’t even recognize it was his own wife whom he was doing CPR on until a ways into it. How is that possible?

I can personally attest to this myself. I badly tore my own finger once, and can say there is no way I could have done what this rabbi was doing, even with strong meds. He doesn’t even wince. This seems impossible.
Here is the video of the rabbi’s press conference, given the day after on 4/28/19.
At 8:12, for example, he talks about how he wrapped his hand in a prayer shawl, and then waives his hand around, as if there was no pain at all. He even then shakes it strongly, and then scratches his head (as if that itch was more important than the pain in his finger). The throbbing would be immense!

“It’s a miracle that I’m alive and talking to you,” Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein tells Chabad.org from his hospital room, where he was recovering from the gunshot wounds he suffered during the terrorist attack at Chabad of Poway on the morning of *April 27*. … Doctors couldn’t save his right index finger, which had to be amputated. Surgeons spent four hours attempting to save his left index finger, which was also badly injured.
Lying to Gentiles is standard practice, taught in the Talmud, as long as they don’t get caught:
Talmud Encourages Jews to Deceive Non-Jews — “Pretend to rejoice with them in order to hide your hatred” — Talmud denies the Gentile status as a “man,” so they are also excluded from being the Jews’ neighbor
