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.
