"You got to admit, this president has said things which are just demonstrably not true time and time again. The list is a very long one, almost on a daily basis," Cooper said.

"So you're very bold in calling out Andrew McCabe, not so bold on the president of the United States," Cooper said. "You haven't heard the president lie?"

Jordan said the president has always been "square" with him. When pressed on whether Trump has ever lied to the American people, Jordan said voters elected Trump to the White House.

"Have you ever heard the president lie?" Cooper asked again.

"I have not," Jordan said. 

Jordan said "nothing comes to mind" when asked again whether the president has ever said something publicly that is a lie.

The exchange came when the two were discussing comments made by former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyThe new marshmallow media in the Biden era McCabe defends investigation of Trump before Senate committee: We had 'many reasons' The Memo: Trump retains narrow path to victory MORE.

During an interview that aired Sunday, Comey said he thinks Trump is "morally unfit to be president." He described the president as a serial liar and a "stain" on everyone who worked for him.

Trump has lashed out in recent days against Comey, referring to him as a "slimeball" and saying he will go down as the worst FBI director in history.
