Everyone has a tell to let the world know they are lying.

Clinton did that thing with his lip.

Bush blinked a lot.

I'm going with guinessford.

For a little more serious answer though, I think when he kind of looks around a little bit. He also looks down when he has to think.

Of course it could also be his endless, uh's, and um's.

I'm still going with guinessford I say when ever his lips move.

This is funny, I told my wife during his speech that it seems that he has a slight 'pause' for a second then he tells a lie.

When he starts a sentence with...


(Which can be every other one some days.)

I think what he really means is...


So he's lying before he even gets past the one word.

hard to say truthfully. i gave up watching fictional speeches. pretty much 95pct of anything a politician says is either a lie now, or a lie later.

He speaks and the stock market falls....

One can argue however that you need to be saying something in order to be lying.

So logically he has never told a lie because he's never said anything that has substance.

His tell is when he opens with "look" and ends a sentence with a quick down-tone.

Aren't you watching Lie To Me? Everything is a tell!

Seriously, look into lie detection. It's pretty interesting. I've been researching it for years- there was a period on ATS where a lot of people were interested in it.

I'd be amused to see someone either than the lady on O'Reilly dedicate time to analyze political people's motions and micro facial expressions.

He tightens his jaw for a split second and his neck muscles tense. Then he says...LOOK....
