Mike joins a campfire with three friends.  After five minutes, Mike is bored and decides to start up a conversation:

(speaker- dialogue)

 

Mike- Tell me something interesting.

Adam-one of us is always a liar.

Mike-Really?

Eric- Yes. They always lie, but one of us is also always a truth teller.

Mike- Oh, cool, well then …that would mean that Sam is the ‘always liar.’

Sam- Yes, yes I am.

Mike-…What? Wait a minute.  I thought you were always a liar.

Sam- Yes I am.

Eric-He is.

Mike-He is?

Eric-yes

Sam-yes

Mike-yes?

Adam-no.

Mike-no.

Sam-no.

Mike-wait….then does that make Eric the liar?

Eric- Yes

Sam- No

Adam-yes

Mike- What??

 

 

**Who is the ‘always’ liar?

Spoiler for Assuming that the question implies that there is one 'always' liar, I think it's possible that

The question 'yes?' is rather vague. I have no idea what he's trying to ask.

the "yes?" is meant to convey his repeating of their answers with disbelief or confusion.

Oops. I accidentally (mentally) switched Eric/Adam's names when I read the first few lines.

What would that mean with regards to Eric's last line?

Though I disagree with your view that Adam is the truth teller.
