Ice SE's Daily Game. It's a production of iHeartRadio. What's
Up in ice Tea? You're listening to The Daily Game,
the compilation of motivational quotes I've collected over the years
that I've found inspiring and helped me through the game
of life. Today's quote comes from a dear friend of mine,

my co star Richard Belzer, who recently passed away and
I definitely miss my guy. Belza said, if you tell
a lie that's big enough, and you tell it often enough,
people will believe you're telling the truth, even if what
you're saying is total crap. I totally believe this, and
I also heard somewhere that people will tend to believe

a big lie quicker than a small lie. The reason
being is most people don't have the gall to lie
in such capacity, So if you tell a huge lie,
they're like, nobody would tell that kind of a lie.
It's like if you were to come home late to
your girl and you say I had a flat tire,

she might not believe that shit. If you say a
seven forty seven landed in the middle of the highway,
she'll go, well, no fucking body would lie like that,
and she'll believe this shit. So if you have the
ability to lie, you know, like we've had politicians out
there and they will continually tell you the same lot

over and over again. Another player told me this. He says,
if you say you're a genius enough, dumb people will
believe it because a dumb person would never call themselves
a genius. So they go, well, he must be a genius,
because I would never say I'm a genius. So see,
they use their own moral compass and their ability to say.

Just like if you're a preacher and you say, well,
Jesus Christ walked into my motel room last night and
told me I'm in charge, you go to church, you go.
No one would lie like that, so it's got to
be the truth. See, your inability to lie in this
capacity is what makes you believe the lie, because you

can't believe this motherfucker is such a scoundrel that they
will lie like that. But let me tell you, the
best liars are big liars, and they have no fucking
problem with it, and they'll bring it on. So take
notes on the big lies. Some of the small lies
you blow them off, but the big ones they catch

you because you're like There's no way on earth someone
can go that far. Richard Bells just says, if you're
telling a lie that's big enough, and you tell it
often enough, people will believe you're telling the truth, even
if what you're saying is total crap. I totally agree
with you, Bells. This has been another ice cold fact

from me iced tea. Listening again tomorrow when I drop
some wisdom on your ass till then, stay safe, stay smart,
and say knowing that if you lie good enough and
long enough, people will start to believe it. I S's
