Call him a f***ing liar. When he lies, tell him and the world he's lying. Stop skirting around this. When he's so f***ing blatant, call him out on it. Don't ask for his source, flat out tell him he's lying and that he's a liar.

To his face? They won't even use the L-word in newspapers or on TV.

There's been a smattering of articles or tv segments calling him a liar, but nobody has ever called him a liar during a press conference or whatever. When he says flat out lies, he should be called on it. I know that most of the time he's saying s*** at speech, so it's hard to counter that, like the windmill s***, but there's been times where he has a speech outside the white house and he just gets away with whatever he says.

I understand a little bit if it's something he says once. Then it can be something he remembered wrong, or that came out wrong, or some bad information he was given. Call it a false or misleading statement, fine.

What gets me is when he doubles down on the false statement when called out on it, or keeps repeating it over and over. If there's been time for his advisors to correct him or for him to have researched it himself (lol), and there's been time for him to correct the record but he keeps repeating the false statement, you don't have to be careful about intent anymore. At that point he's definitely lying and should be called a liar.

Pundits and online publications will call him a liar, but some media is really reluctant to.

They call him a liar all the time. Watch cnn or msnbc some time, they do it almost every night.

Where did you even come up with this thread? It’s so absurd that it borders on parody
