She probably isn't. I'm not saying she's a narcissist, but for example a narcissist will tell you that everything they say is true, when most of it isn't, yet the narcissist believes it's true. Remember a recent POTUS?

Well, she didn't say she thinks, she clearly said she never knows how much of what she says is true, The two have very different meanings.
