Republican National Committee Chairman Reince PriebusReinhold (Reince) Richard PriebusMick Mulvaney's job security looks strong following impeachment CNN's Harwood on Trump acquittal speech: 'This is somebody in deep psychological distress' Reince Priebus joins CBS News as political analyst MORE said Wednesday that he doesn't "believe a thing" President Obama says.

Appearing on CNN, Priebus was asked about Obama's comments at a press conference earlier in the day, where he said that while he wants Congress to act on immigration, he is "not going to just wait." Host Erin Burnett asked if Republicans would compromise on the issue to pass something in Congress, or if Obama would take executive action.

"I don’t believe a thing he says," Priebus replied. "So he’s been talking about immigration reform for seven years, so you’re using his words as if they actually mean something, and ask me to respond to it. He’s been talking about this when he had 60 votes in the Senate and Nancy Pelosi in the House and they didn’t do a darn thing."

The RNC chief added that "all he’s been doing for the last year is lying to Hispanic voters across the country." Priebus pointed to Obama initially saying he would act on immigration before the end of the summer, then delaying the action until after the midterm elections.

The chairman also threw cold water on the idea of compromise on the issue.

MORE and everyone that was connected to him, to now say 'Well, what are you guys going to do to compromise with the person the American people had just repudiated?' I think it’s a little bizarre," Priebus said.

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the Republican leader in the Senate, warned about executive action on Wednesday, saying it would be like "waving a red flag in front of a bull."
