Heading into the weekend, how about a real rib-tickler to go along with that half-price Happy Hour beverage? On today’s With All Due Respect, guest host Donny Deutsch actually said of Hillary Clinton “she does not lie.” Hope you didn’t spit out that drink!

As soon as “does not lie” left Donny’s mouth, he had to start semi-backtracking: “well, we’ve seen instances as far as the email where she was not forthcoming and she actually did lie, but on a day-to-day basis as part of her campaign DNA it’s not in there.” How ironic of Deutsch to claim that lying is not in Hillary’s DNA. The most famous line on Hillary’s losing struggle with the truth came from the late, great William Safire, who called Hillary a “congenital liar,” i.e., baked into her DNA, Donny.

Safire’s line was from way back in 1996, when Hillary was just a promising neophyte in the lying game. She has since added a ton of untruths to her resume: this article details seven recent ones.

DONNY DEUTSCH: I said an interesting thing this morning, hopefully it was interesting, on Morning Joe. I said Hillary at some point, because she’ll say you’re lying and he’s going no, I’m not. She should say, all right, everybody at home, Google, right now, 100 million people, let’s all Google together. And I think we do have that ability because he just blatantly lies and just is not called on it. So it’s going to be up to her, not Lester Holt.

MARGARET TALEV: Whose the pressure on most, I guess more on her than Lester Holt because she’s actually trying to win a race, right?

DONNY: It is because she does not lie. I mean, well, we’ve seen instances where, in terms of, as far as the email, she was not forthcoming and she actually did lie. But on a day-to-day basis as part of her campaign DNA, it’s not in there. He has actually used lying as a strategy.
