For some time now, Van Jones has offered a bevy of political musings that might prompt more sensible, less forgiving souls to barf in a bag or bang their head against a wall, but it seems only now that are some catching on.
On a Tuesday-night CNN appearance, Van Jones made comments about Donald Trump’s “leaked” tax returns. And once again, he seemed to praise the president.
Van Jones will always be welcome at the cookout, but he might not always be entitled to a big red Solo cup of adult beverages if he keeps talking like this.
Thursday night in Washington, D.C., was a clusterfuck for anyone traveling into or out of the city.
