If you were unfamiliar with the name Van Jones after yesterday that may no longer be the case. Jones’s name has been trending on social media since last night after he made the following remarks on President Trump’s Joint Session speech to Congress.
According to Jones, Mr. Trump became “became president of the United States” when he recognized the widow of slain Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens.”
Jones also went on to say, “There are a lot of people who have a lot of reason to be frustrated with him, fearful of him, mad at him.”
“But that was one of the most extraordinary moments you have ever seen in American politics, period.”
Jones said, “He did something extraordinary,” and for people who have been hoping that he would become unifying, hoping that he might find some way to become presidential, they should be happy with that moment.”
Many found Jones’s comments to be off based. Jones has been an outspoken critic of the President since he took office in mid-January of this year, most recently opposing and going after the President on the proposed “Muslim Ban.”
