In a world where President Trump has made 4,229 false or misleading claims since taking office, it makes sense to take his penchant for untruths for granted.
But Fox News hosts are worried that President Trump has spun a web that will inevitably trap him, wondering on Monday's Outnumbered how the president could possibly manage not to eventually perjure himself before federal investigators.
Trump is reportedly still mulling the terms of a possible sit-down interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as investigators probe whether his campaign was involved with Russian interference in the 2016 election. Host Dagen McDowell wondered aloud: "How in the world could he ever cooperate and sit down with Mueller for an interview knowing that if you tell one lie to Bob Mueller, he will move to file charges?"
Unfortunately, there is no "but it was just one little lie" clause that would protect Trump from being found guilty of lying under oath, and several hosts agreed that it looks increasingly like "the Mueller team is setting a trap for the president" on that technicality.
Guest Jessica Tarlov, a Democratic strategist, chimed in to point out an innovative solution to the problem. "He could not tell a lie, that's always an option here," she said. Watch the moment below, via Fox News. Summer Meza
