CNN’s Fareed Zakaria: ‘This Is the Mode of a Bullshit Artist’

By Mark Joyella 

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria described efforts by Donald Trump to clarify his remarks about Russia and Ukraine as “the mode of a bullshit artist.”

Zakaria made the comment Monday on CNN’s Wolf, telling host Wolf Blitzer “every time it is demonstrated that Donald Trump is plainly ignorant about some basic public policy issues … he comes back with a certain bravado and tries to explain it away with a tweet or statement.”

“It’s sort of amusing,” Zakaria said, “but there is a term for this kind of thing, and this is the mode of a bullshit artist. It is amusing and entertaining if the guy is trying to sell you a condo or a car, but for a President of the United States, it’s deeply worrying.”

Blitzer did not comment on Zakaria’s colorful choice of words. We’ve reached out to CNN for comment.
