: what is the meaning of "have a hollow ring (to)"?

People use that expression when they feel that something is not being expressed honestly.
For instance, we here in the US have an idiot and liar for a president.
Most, if not all, his and his fellow gangster/cabinet members' utterances, statements and opinions have a hollow ring to them.
