You may remember Mary Matalin from an earlier post. She was one of the first people to predict Trump would win. She got into a heated discussion with CNN’s Van Jones on ABC News Sunday.
Matalin called out Jones for saying Trump’s election was a white lash. Things got heated after that!

Here’s a partial transcript via Breitbart:
MATALIN: Can I have an honest moment here people, Van has to my mind retracted your whitelash with what you just said, no, that we have to not focus on the toxic stuff — okay, but you — if you don’t, you’re wrong. You are not — that’s not the path for progressives. We’ve all agreed at the outset that the path which is Ellison’s message is to go back to the rust belt and the rednecks . You’re not going to get there with climate change and Putin.
JONES: I said and stand by it. I said that race was a part and there was a part that alt-right part is part of the whitelash. If you listened to the whole quote you would agree with what I said So i don;t take that back–
MATALIN: I did listen and you said what do I tell the kids. I’m a black man in America who went to Yale and written books who served a president and now —
JONES: I’m a ninth generation American and the first born in my family with all my rights. Ninth generation American, so we have not escaped because I went to Yale all the problems of this country.
MATALIN: You should not be a racial polemicist you should be a racial reconciler.
JONES: You should be ashamed about yourself to say that about me to my face.
MATALIN: Should I say it behind your back would be better?
JONES: I spent more time than you have trying to be a racial reconciler.
MATALIN: Really? How do you know that? Do you know anything about me?
JONES: Apparently you don’t know anything about me.
The left is really upset about Trump’s win.
Expect to see more anger like this from them.
