Donald Trump, the Ku Klux Klan, and Van Jones

This video from the USA says about itself:

Van Jones Has Had Enough Of Trump’s KKK Games

2 March 2016

Last night on CNN a Donald Trump surrogate tried to explain to Van Jones that the KKK was a leftist organization. Van wasn’t having it. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola (ThinkTank), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Jones argued that when Trump was “playing funny with the Klan, that is not cool.”

“I know this man, when he gets passionate about terrorism, I know how he talks about terrorism, the Klan is a terrorist organization,” Jones explained.

“It’s a leftist terrorist organization,” Lord interjected.

“We’re not going to play that game,” Jones shot back. “No, you need to take a serious look at the fact that this man has been playing fast and loose and footsie. When he starts talking about terrorism, he gets passionate, he says, ‘No, this is wrong.’ But when you talk about the Klan, ‘Oh, I don’t know, I don’t know.’”

The former White House staffer pointed out that Lord had compared the Klan to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Barack Obama’s one-time pastor.

“Rev. Wright never lynched anybody!” Jones insisted. “Rev. Wright never put anybody on a post and you guys play these word games, and it’s wrong to do in America. It is wrong to do!””
