CNN's Fareed Zakaria attributes President Trump's success to 'bullsh***ing'

CNN's Fareed Zakaria has attributed President Trump's success to "bullsh***ing."

On Friday night, Zakaria and fellow network host Don Lemon discussed a Justice Department report that allegedly "does not confirm Trump's wiretap claim."

Zakaria commented, "I think the president is somewhat indifferent to things that are true or false."

He added, "He has spent his whole life bullsh***ing. He has succeeded by bullsh***ing. He has gotten the presidency by bullsh***ing. It's very hard to tell somebody at that point that bulls**t doesn't work, because look at the results, right? But that's what he does. He sees something, he doesn't particularly care if it's true or not, he just puts it out there. And then he puts something else out..."

Zakaria then referred to Trump's answer when a German reporter asked about the claim that a British agency had wiretapped Trump Tower.

The U.S. president responded by saying, "...we said nothing. All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn't make an opinion on it.You shouldn't be talking to me. You should be talking to Fox."

Zakaria said of Trump in this exchange, "When pushed on it, he doesn't take responsibility. 'I wasn't saying that, I was just quoting somebody else.'"
