CNN host Fareed Zakaria, a self-confessed serial plagiarist, doubled down on his taunt calling Donald Trump a “bullsh*t artist” on his Sunday morning show, “Fareed Zakaria GPS.”

Zakaria, a Muslim who openly despises Trump, called the billionaire businessman a “B.S. artist” while ignoring Hillary Clinton‘s decades-long history of lies and his own serial plagiarism.

“I was not using that label casually,” said Zakaria. “Trump is many things. Some of them dark and dangerous, but at his core he is a B.S. artist.

“He boasts and boasts about his business, his buildings, his wives. Much of it is a concoction of hyperbole and falsehood.”

Fareed Zakaria is an expert on bullsh*t and lying: In 2012, he was suspended by CNN and Time magazine after plagiarizing five articles, the Washington Post reported.

When he was first caught, Zakaria claimed the plagiarism was “an isolated incident.” That is, until four other articles were found to have been plagiarisms of other journalists’ writings.

The 2012 plagiarism incident wasn’t the first time Zakaria was accused of stealing other people’s work.

In 2009, Zakaria was accused of stealing material written by Atlantic magazine columnist Jeffrey Goldberg.

While hating on Donald Trump, Zakaria has praised Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, calling her “very intelligent” and an “incredibly impressive public figure.”

Zakaria has slammed Trump over his calls to temporarily ban unvetted Muslim immigrants from coming to the United States amid the spate of radical Islamic terrorist attacks and the Muslim rape epidemic sweeping across Europe.

Most recently, Zakaria embarrassed himself when he interviewed Russian president Vladimir Putin, who accused Fareed of distorting his words (see video).

“Why do you always change the meaning of what I said?” Putin asked Zakaria.

Putin went on to praise Trump for saying he wants to restore relations with Russia. “What’s wrong with that? We all welcome this, don’t you?” Putin said to thunderous applause.

While the interview was done in June 2016, Putin supported Trump’s recent concerns that the presidential election might “be rigged” the same way the Democratic primaries were rigged against Bernie Sanders.

“Twice in U.S. history a president was elected by having the most votes from Superdelegates while having the least amount of popular votes,” Putin told Zakaria. “Is that your ‘democracy?'”
