Most, if not all, of our presidents have lied to the public at one time or another. But we’ve never had one who lies like Donald Trump lies. Bob talks about that with guest, Eric Alterman, a distinguished professor of English at Brooklyn College, who is also the Nation magazine’s media columnist, and the author of the new book, “LYING IN STATE: Why Presidents Lie -- And Why Trump Is Worse.”
