It’s odd that a CNN anchor would consider a Trump tweet about him as his biggest achievement.
On Tuesday night, during a discussion after President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech, liberal CNN contributor Van Jones insisted that illegal immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than the general population as right-leaning CNN contributor Rick Santorum cited a recent study by John Lott finding that illegal immigrants in Arizona commit crimes at twice the rate of the general population.
Ian Schwartz at Real Clear Politics found hot talk about President Trump being a racist insect on the debut of the new Van Jones show on CNN Saturday night. Jones asked the rapper Jay-Z about the allegation that Trump talked about immigrants from "s---hole countries" (and Jones said the word again on CNN). Jay-Z called that not only "hurtful," but "misinformed," because "these places have beautiful people and beautiful everything."
CNN political commentator and former Obama White House staffer Van Jones had a conniption on Anderson Cooper 360 over the news that Oprah Winfrey could run for president in 2020.
CNN contributor Van Jones appeared on CBS’s The Late Show with anti-Trump “resistance” host Stephen Colbert Tuesday night, so naturally the president’s hostile relationship with the "Facts First" network came up.
On Thursday, President Trump signed an executive order that made it easier for small and medium-size businesses to band together in order to buy health insurance as a group and get a better rate. The Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) found that idea abhorrent and smeared it as a threat to Obama’s legacy. The hyperbole continued during ABC’s This Week on Sunday, where CNN’s Van Jones claimed Trump had no regard for the well being of Americans.
Every Single Person We Don’t Like in the Liberal Media eventually won “Quote of the Year” at the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards on Thursday, but it also came away with the Trumpocalypse Award moments earlier in the evening. Once The Federalist's Mollie Heminway declared the winner, conservative writer and former CNN political commentator Jeffrey Lord accepted the award, in jest, on behalf of liberal journalists featured in the Trumpocalypse compilation.
A boisterous crowd of nearly 900 conservatives and guests packed the National Building Museum on Thursday night for the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards. After the audience selected the most outrageous quote in three categories, the crowd singled out Every Single Person We Don’t Like in the Liberal Media for the ultimate “DisHonor” of being the MRC's “Quote of the Year.”
CNN’s Van Jones appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live September 12, as one of Kimmel’s guests, where he proceeded to argue for civility in politics, between the left and right. But even the far left Jones, who infamously called President Trump winning the election a “whitelash,” seemed to be outweighed in his hatred for the right by host Jimmy Kimmel.
CNN’s Brian Stelter continued his role as an unabashed liberal media cheerleader on Tuesday, promoting a pathetic statement from a media trade group claiming The Blaze host and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch incited violence against journalists in an April video denouncing media bias. While the group Digital Content Next decried Loesch’s phrase “[w]e’re coming for you” as a trigger for violence, a quick Nexis search of CNN transcripts yielded numerous cases where CNN used that same phrase about conservatives and Republicans.
Everyone who watched the recent Project Veritas video of Van Jones clearly heard him say that "the Russia thing is just a big nothing burger." However, Van Jones appeared on the June 29 Anderson Cooper 360 show to declare that we misinterpreted what he was saying. Jones spun it that what he meant was that the hope for impeachment of President Donald Trump based on the proofless charge of collusion with Russia in the 2016 election was the real "nothing burger."
Here is Van Jones as he spin, spin, spins:
The latest video from James O’Keefe exposed another gaffe from a CNN personality. A day after a network producer admitted there was no “proof,” so far, to the Russia investigation, CNN personality Van Jones called the issue a “nothing burger.” The undated footage shows the liberal analyst stating, “The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger.”
