Since the election of Donald Trump, few questions have divided the press more than whether or not to call the president a liar. New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman reignited that debate when she sent out this tweet last weekend saying, "Trump told two demonstrable falsehoods this AM," referring to immigration policy and an off-the-record press briefing. Many attacked Haberman, asking why she didn’t call what Trump said “lies,” plain and simple. Emily was joined by WGBH's Adam Reilly, Lylah Alphonse of the U.S. News & World Report, Dan Kennedy of Northeastern University, and former CNN White House correspondent Dan Lothian.
