Van Jones is a very far left commentator for CNN, but he does have decent instincts when it comes to politics.
After the last Democrat debate, Jones said he was “dispirited” by what he saw.
He doesn’t think any of the candidates sounded like they could beat Trump.
The Hill reports:
CNN’s Van Jones: Democratic debate was ‘dispiriting,’ no evidence party can defeat Trump
CNN commentator Van Jones described the final debate before the Iowa caucuses as “dispiriting” and said Democrats will have to do better if they’re going to defeat President Trump.
Jones also lamented the bitter feud between Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) over whether Sanders told Warren that a woman could not win the White House.
“As a progressive to see those two have that level of vitriol was dispiriting,” Jones said.
“And I want to say that tonight for me was dispiriting. Democrats will have to do better than we saw tonight. There was nothing I saw tonight to suggest we’ll be able to take Donald Trump out and I want to see a Democrat in the White House as soon as possible. There was nothing tonight, if you’re looking at this thing, to say any of these people are prepared for what Donald Trump will do to us. And to see further divisions tonight is very dispiriting.”

Some people seem to agree:
CNN’s Van Jones just said “Nothing I saw at the debate could beat Trump.”
He’s exactly right.

Yesterday, CNN Commentator Van Jones said, “Democrats will have to do better than we saw tonight. There was nothing I saw tonight to suggest we'll be able to take Donald Trump out“.
If the Left is starting to see what we all saw coming, then they are definitely in trouble.

Van Jones with the truth. This debate was brutal to watch. Those of us that watch these because we have to were expecting Foreman VS Frazier and we got Klitschko VS Fury. @VanJones68 nailed it. Any of them would get destroyed by President Trump in a head to head debate. https://t.co/tzfSInCGhA
