“I asked you: What do you call someone who likes to lie? You said a scoundrel,” Berman said. “Another thing you could call someone who likes to lie is a liar. Is he a liar?”
“Well, we both know that he’s telling lies. So if you want me to say he’s a liar, I’m happy to say he’s a liar,” Scaramucci replied.
Scaramucci also tried to justify Trump’s lies, saying they were similar to other falsehoods told by politicians.
Still, “The Mooch” may have had enough, because he then looked into the camera and addressed Trump personally (even though the president was more likely watching Fox News).
“You know, you’re a politician now, so politicians lie when their lips are moving, and so all these people lie,” Scaramucci said. “But you should probably dial down the lying, because you don’t need to.”
Scaramucci added. “You’re doing a great job for the country. So dial that down, and you’ll be doing a lot better.”
