During CNN’s Election Night coverage, former Obama adviser Van Jones argued that the 2016 election was “a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president, in part.”

Jones said, “This was many things. I — this was a rebellion against the elites, true. It was a complete reinvention of politics and polls. It’s true. But it was also something else. We’ve talked about race –we’ve talked about everything but race tonight. … This was a whitelash. This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president, in part. And that’s the part where the pain comes. And Donald Trump has a responsibility tonight to come out and reassure people that he is going to be the president of all the people who he insulted and offended and brushed aside. Yeah, when you say you want to take your country back, you’ve got a lot of people who feel that we’re not represented well either, but we don’t want to feel that someone has been elected by throwing away some of us to appeal more deeply to others. So, we — this is a deeply painful moment tonight. I know it’s not just about race. There’s more going on than that, but race is here too. We’ve got to talk about it.”

  1. It WAS NOT a repudiation of any race, creed or color. The rejection of the Obama backing philosophy is the true upshot, not the fringe nut-ball racist rantings that THEY are dragging out as an excuse for the failure of their policies and Philosphy.
    THEY are the ones talking about some KKK publication endorsing him. You will notice I DID NOT include the name of it to provide the .001 percent a quick link to more idiots of their sick ideas and platform to gather together.
    Any white candidate with the qualifications and ideas and policies of Obama and his cohorts would never made it past the nomination process to get on the primary ballot, let alone actual elected office.
    Your candidate and your “progressive” ideas are not workable. More and More and More government isn’t going to make them any more executable without rearranging our Representative Democracy to a future socialist or worse government.
    My suggestion is move to Canada. It’s a democracy and a First World country close by. Come and visit often. In twenty years see which one is better.

  2. The MAJORITY of American’s have spoken, & we are tired of working 2 jobs; paying EVERYONE elses way! I have now been working over 40 years, have had to pay for ALL of my secondary schooling, healthcare, etc. It is the fault of imbeciles such as this “commentator”, that we have finally HAD IT!!!! Do you honestly think, that this country has IMPROVED by college students protesting “racism” when their college grade papers are corrected grammatically? And warnings must be issued IF(Heaven forbid) a subject discussed MIGHT upset them? That Black on Black crime is 85% of the time, but you claim to be “hunted”. The Liberals have MANIPULATED & FABRICATED utter LIES for more than 8 years! When 25% of Police Force shootings are Black; WHO IN THE HELL ARE THE OTHER 75%????? IF we are to EVER return to a civilized society; we need to “pull the plug” on morons like this, as well as BEYONCE & her SuperBowl stunt! Honestly, we will gladly ASSIST ALL of you to move to countries you feel are worthy of you!!! Because, you aren’t worthy of mine! Yup! Muslims should be banned! The Boston Marathon, San Bernadino, 9-11; WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO INSIST YOU LEAVE!!!

  3. Almost everything that originates from this sort of a mind set is raced based. You see that is where these azz hats get their so called power. They speak to very low I.Q. rage that is easley manipulated and almost none of these gobberment educated lazy, anti-Americans can think independently about what they think tis a reaction issue. Van jones is nothing more than a marxist trained narrow minded agenda driven puppet for George Soros. By the way, can any one explain in a lawman terms why this Nazi is still walking around a free man?

  4. Van Jones is a virulent racist. The things he was stating on election night and the day after were making the other hosts cringe. Van Jones essentially called all Trump supporters ‘racist, hateful, uninformed, and bigoted’. As a second generation Cuban – American I highly resent this man, his network, but especially his hate – filled and unhinged remarks!

  5. I’m White. I voted for Obama…twice. I served in the Marines as a Grunt. Some Guys were Black, some White, we were all part of the Green Machine. I want Trump to re-institute the Draft, so that EVERY healthy American of voting age is trained and ready for war…. same as the Israelis are. Now I will support President Trump. America Spoke. Hooyah! President Trump!
