GOP Rep. Jim Jordan, who is reportedly jockeying to become House Speaker, appeared on Anderson Cooper’s show last night to defend Trump against James Comey’s declaration that Glorious Leader is “morally unfit” to be president.
When Cooper asked if he agrees with Comey that Trump “lies a lot,” Jordan weaseled and deflected, turning the question back against Comey, Andrew McCabe, and even Cooper himself, who Jordan said has “probably said something that wasn’t 100% accurate.”
Cooper wasn’t having it and continued to press Jordan, asking again, “Have you ever heard the president lie?” Jordan replied, “I have not.” Cooper then somehow suppressed an eye roll, saying, “Really?”
Anderson Cooper: “Have you ever heard the President lie?”
