Italian term or phrase: gli dicono
Tu sei uno che quando gli dicono la verita' ti pregano di tacere e ti danno del bugiardo...ti nascondi dietro un dito...
Traci Andrighetti
English translation:Vedi sotto...
Explanation:
"You are one of those people that, when told the truth, asks the speaker to shut up or call him a lier..."

Again, we would need a bit more context about who the characters are to give you a better version.

agree  b612: you wrote "asks" and then "call". It should either be singular or plural. can't be both.
