On Wednesday, a panel hosted by CNN’s Jake Tapper railed against President Donald Trump’s unprecedented amount of lies and knocked him as a “pathological” liar.
Trump’s use of lies have been reported on in the past, however this week he intensified multiple lies including misstating where his father was born. The Washington Post claims that Tump is now “averaging 22 lies or misleading claims a day.”
“All politicians get caught lying. There’s something pathological about Trump’s penchant for lying,” CNN’s S.E. Cupp said. “You could trace it back to maybe his career as a salesman. I think he’s just deeply insecure. I didn’t know men this insecure existed outside of like Looney Tunes cartoons.”
“He’s very insecure so I think he reaches for lies to make himself feel better,” she added.
“We’re getting close to the point where the White House’s official position on the president is that facts don’t matter and the truth is relative. It’s getting worse,” political analyst John Avlon said.

‘Belligerent from the get-go’: Dem senator gives blow-by-blow account of Trump’s meltdown on Pelosi
Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) gave a detailed account of the emotional meltdown that President Donald Trump had with congressional Democrats at the White House on Wednesday.
Appearing on CNN Thursday morning, Menendez broke down how Trump started raging at Democrats from the second he entered the room.
"The meeting started off with the president walking in and slamming down his files on the table," Menendez said. "It was belligerent from the get-go... you have the president of the United States, who is supposed to bring our country together, particularly in times of challenges, [calling] the Speaker a third-rate politician."
Grieving British parents react on CNN to seeing Trump’s defense of woman who killed their son
On CNN Thursday, grieving British parents Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles were shown footage of how President Donald Trump reacted to the motor vehicle death of their teenage son Harry at the hands of American diplomatic wife Anne Sacoolas.
Trump has refused to waive diplomatic immunity for Sacoolas to face punishment for her actions — and tried to defuse the situation by arranging a surprise meeting between Sacoolas and the parents which fortunately never took place.
"Radd, as you watched all of that play out, describe the mood in the room and what you left feeling after that — after that surprise," said anchor Alisyn Camerota.
MSNBC conservative goes down in flames trying to separate Trump’s incompetence from his corruption
MSNBC conservative Noah Rothman met furious pushback when he dismissed poll numbers as insignificant showing a growing majority of Americans support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
The "Morning Joe" contributor argued that those numbers reflected the president's approval rating and would not exert any pressure on congressional Republicans, but instead place greater pressure on Democrats to make their case for impeachment.
"It's incumbent on Democrats to make this case," Rothman said. "Right now they are presenting a united front because it's still primary season. Once we get into the general (election campaign) there will be more pressure on them to explain their position, but it's incumbent on Democrats to make the case."
