CNN host and Washington Post columnist Fareed Zakaria called out Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump for BS Monday.

Zakaria was responding to a question by CNN news anchor Wolf Blitzer.

‘Every time it is demonstrated that Donald Trump is plainly ignorant about some basic public policy issue, some well-known fact, he comes back with a certain bravado and tries to explain it away with a tweet or a statement,’ Zakaria said.

‘There’s a term for this kind of thing: this is the mode of a bullsh*t artist,’ Zakaria added.

You can listen the Indian American journalist’s remarks below.

Zakaria was reacting to Trump’s remarks about Russian President Vladimir Putin in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

“I have my own ideas. He’s not going into Ukraine, OK, just so you understand. He’s not gonna go into Ukraine, all right? You can mark it down. You can put it down,’ Trump said

In 2014, Russia sent its troops into Eastern Ukraine and also annexed the Crimea.

Trump later tried to explain away his comment in several tweets.

Zakaria isn’t buying it.

‘It’s entertaining if the guy is trying to sell you a condo or a car. But for the president of the United States, it’s deeply worrying,’ he said.
