If someone uses these two words, Jon Stewart says it almost guarantees they are lying

How do you tell if someone is lying?

Experts say there are many different tells:

  • too much eye contact
  • coughing
  • changes in voice pitch
  • stuttering
  • awkward pauses
  • changes in posture

But what if it was as simple as just using two words – these two words:

Believe Me.

That’s what Jon Stewart suggests, anyway.

Stewart made a surprise appearance on The Late Show to talk about the media’s handling of Donald Trump’s alternative facts, and laid it out like this:

He’s lying on purpose!

You know how I know?

Because he constantly says the phrase ‘believe me’.

Nobody says ‘believe me’ unless they are lying!

It’s hard to argue with that logic, to be fair.
