Dishonesty is a trait people loathe in politicians, but thankfully our Prime Minister "doesn't believe" he has ever told a lie in public life. While the PM should hope the media doesn't throw to the video referee on that claim, it's clear that French President Emmanuel Macron's bombshell comment that Scott Morrison lied to him not only set off diplomatic shockwaves, but created domestic political fallout too.
