CNN “commentator’ and admitted communist, Van Jones, blasted the Hillary Clinton campaign during his speech as The People’s Summit in Chicago, saying that she should give back the money her campaign wasted – $1 billion.
The Hill reported:
“The Hillary Clinton campaign did not spend their money on white workers, and they did not spend it on people of color. They spent it on themselves,” Jones told a packed house at McCormick Place in Chicago. “They spent it on themselves, let’s be honest.”
“Let’s be honest,” Jones continued. “They took a billion dollars, a billion dollars, a billion dollars, and set it on fire, and called it a campaign!”
“That wasn’t a campaign. That’s not a campaign.”
Jones continued, attacking the Clinton campaign’s reliance on consultants and polling data that proved to be wrong.
“A billion dollars for consultants. A billion dollars for pollsters. A billion dollars for a data operation, that was run by data dummies who couldn’t figure out that maybe people in Michigan needed to be organized.”
He blamed the same forces in the Democratic Party behind the Clinton campaign’s defeat for continuing to divide the resistance to President Trump after the election.
“And now they want us to fight about whether black folks or white workers or Latinos or any other group should get the money,” Jones said. “First of all, you need to give the money back to the people, period.”
“Quit getting rich off people’s struggles,” Jones finished.
Wow, Van Jones actually made some sense for once!
