CNN’s Chris Cuomo audibly groans when Rick Santorum says he ‘doesn’t know’ if Trump has ever lied

Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) went down in flames in an epic Wednesday morning interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo. The claims from the Pennsylvania conservative were so egregious that it even prompted Cuomo to groan and bring up the former senator’s faith.

“I think that is one of the lesser situations here,” Cuomo began. “There is bad decision making on display here and swampy by definition. If what the president’s mandate was partially about was draining the swamp, getting rid of the people who will choose preference over power

, why stand by this guy? The Morocco example alone. Somebody setting up a trip to Morocco and they get hired as a lobbyist.”

“That is a political argument and a fair one to have,” Cuomo noted. “But what we saw was public sentiment was increasing about the [Affordable Care Act] while you guys were trying to destroy it, because people were realizing what would happen to their prices. Now it is coming home to roost.”

“What do we see in this administration?” he asked. “And Rick, you can push back but it is just a fact. The Washington Post did an analysis of, let’s put up some graphic to help with the numbers. In 466 days, this is like the lie-o-meter, the president has made a record number of false claims.

You will say, ‘Well, we have never measured it this way.’ Chicken and egg, my brother. If you give me 3,001 misleading, outright lies and often ugly about things that our democracy is supposed to protect, you’re going to get heat.”

“Oh come on, you’ve got to be better than this,” Cuomo said. He went on to described it as being like a child called out for lying, who answers that their parent lied to them too.

“We don’t say that to our children, Rick,” Cuomo noted. “Why justify it with the president of the United States? Why give him cover?”
