WATCH: Trump Snubs Reporter’s Question – ‘Do You Regret All Your Lying?’
President Donald Trump on Thursday’s press conference quickly snubbed a reporter’s question if he regrets all the lies throughout his presidency for three and a half years.
“Mr President, after three-and-a-half years, do you regret at all, all the lying you’ve done to the American people?” asked SV Dáte, the Huffington Post’s White House correspondent.
“All the what?” Trump replied, rather baffled.
“All the lying. All the dishonesties,” Dáte said. “That who has done?” Trump asked. “You have done. Tens of thousands of them.”
After a brief pause, Trump ignored Dáte and moved on to the next question.
“For five years, I’ve been waiting to ask him that,” Dáte tweeted later the day.
For five years I've been wanting to ask him that.

Dáte also spoke with Guardian to talk more about the bold question that he asked Trump.
“I don’t know why he called on me because I’ve tried to ask him before , and he’s cut me off mid-question. Maybe he didn’t recognize me this time,” Dáte told Guardian. “You know, he has this group of folks that he normally asks questions of.”
The Washington Post has reported that the president made over 20,000 “false or misleading claims” during his presidency.
On Thursday alone, Trump made 62 lies, half of them from a single interview with Sean Hannity from Fox News.
