a person who is aware of something, but chooses to either ignore it or lie about it; a lair or a fraud

comes from the saying that a watermelon seller does not know if the watermelon is ripe or not but promotes them regardless. it gained notoriety when it was attributed to the president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who is described to be a crook and fraud.
Now lets talk about that 'watermelon seller' Erdogan, he sold me a basket of Apples knowing they'd be rotten on the inside.
