Bernstein says Trump’s lies worse than Nixon’s

Carl Bernstein, whose reporting broke open the Watergate scandal that led to former President Nixon’s resignation, said Sunday that Nixon’s lies were nothing compared to Donald Trump’s. 

{mosads}”Trump lives and thrives in a fact-free environment. No president, including Richard Nixon, has been so ignorant of fact and disdains fact in the way this president-elect does,” Bernstein said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” 

Bernstein also slammed what he called a “growing sense of authoritarianism” from Trump and his campaign. 

“Richard Nixon was nothing, in terms of lying, compared to what we have seen from Donald Trump,” he said.
