that's not it
you'd say something like ''stop __(insert word)___'' in an argument
it's when someone brings up something to make themselves sound better
sorry for the rubbish description

it's like when you interject an argument to prove the point that you're better than them

Self aggrandizing or grandstanding.

Or maybe blowing your own trumpet, although they say that's impossible unless you remove a rib.

ok wait so Imagine two people having an argument, and you butt in to say something like 'I completely agree with person 1, I'd never do something like that, I'm not a two-faced ***** like some people ' , and then person two would tell you to 'stop _____ '
