On Fox News Sunday, Corey Lewandowski continued the "if we say the lies enough times, people will believe it's true" credo of the Trump campaign. In today's edition of things that we all know aren't true, but Trump sycophants believe, Lewandowski decided to announce that Trump is winning with women voters and Hispanic voters, two statements that are patently untrue. Chris Wallace could barely contain his incredulity. Here is the exchange:

"WALLACE: But I think you would agree that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has been very supportive of your campaign. Here’s what he had to say about Trump’s comments this week.


NEWT GINGRICH, FORMER HOUSE SPEAKER: I think that the attack last night was very, very destructive. I think it sent all the wrong signals. You particularly don’t want to see your candidate who needs to vote, get stronger with Latinos, and stronger with women, attacked a Latina woman Republican governor.


WALLACE: Gingrich went on to say that Trump sometimes, quote, "goes off the deep end."

That doesn’t sound like something you want in a president.

LEWANDOWSKI: Well, Chris, what you have here is there's no attack on a Latino or a woman governor. What this was, was laying out the economic perspective of what the state of New Mexico was doing and he’s saying we need to do a better job. That’s what our country needs, is we need to create jobs, we need to have more people back to work, we need to build a wall, we need to stop illegal immigration.

These are things that are said everywhere we go. And so, you know, if Donald Trump is winning with Latinos, if you look at the last poll, he’s winning with Hispanics. If you look at the polls, he’s doing very well with woman. He has a much more --

WALLACE: Wait --


LEWANDOWSKI: He is so close that in the state of California, Donald Trump is now, the state of California is now in plane. Clinton is scared to death.


WALLACE: But, Corey, wait, he’s not winning with woman and he’s not winning with Hispanics. His numbers are hugely underwater with both."

Lewandoski followed the Trump handbook and never responded to the question from Wallace about how his statement is a blantant, bald faced, ludicrous lie.

The problem is, Trump voters don't care how much he lies. All they are about is the hate and the "Wall that will never be made."
