Democratic strategist, Maria Cardona and former Donald Trump campaign official Steve Cortes went off the rails in an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett on Wednesday.


Burnett questioned why Republicans continue to report on fake news.

"Why do these people say things that are not true? Just because they think Trump wants to hear it?" she said.

Cortes dodged her question. "This idea that trump loves yes-men or women is so untrue," he said.

Cardona interjected and called out the bigger issue.

"Steve didn't answer your question because their boss lies every single time his mouth opens. He has been up past 3,000 lies since the moment he took office," Cardona said.

"I love to review that list by the way," Cortes said.
