New Yorker writer Ryan Lizza appeared on CNN Monday and accused President Trump of making “shit up.”
Lizza said, “People have watched presidencies in the past and dealt with presidents who have said things that aren’t always true, we have a way of processions that, we understand when things are shaded but with this president, on a daily basis, he just, he makes shit up. He lies.”
“Why is that? Why is that different from previous presidents when he gets a question like that from a journalist, his immediate thing is just to make something up. And then when he’s presented with the facts, he says ‘oh, somebody told me that’ and backs down immediately,” he continued.
Former Trump campaign communications staffer Jason Miller also appeared on the segment, saying, “the answer is basically given in the question, where they want to go.” He added: “[Trump’s] not answering it in the way you want him to answer it.”
