As CNN was concluding its coverage of the Republican National Convention on Monday, host Chris Cuomo defended the lopsided number of "fact checks" the liberal network conducted for the RNC compared to the Democratic National Convention last week.

Cuomo argued Republicans and President Trump deserve the exorbitant amount of fact-checking due to how much more they lie when compared to Democrats.

"Again, well, who are people going to believe? We'll see who makes the better case. And yeah, you can fact-check it to death. We could fact-check this convention all night. People were saying you didn't fact-check the Democrats," Cuomo told fellow host Don Lemon. "They are not lying, the way Trump does. Do politicians lie? Of course, both parties engage in it. Yes, I'll give you the full ‘Guilfoyle.' But not like Donald Trump. Nobody lies the way this man does, has, and will that I've ever seen in politics. So — he's lying to you."
