Even before the results were announced Tuesday evening, Democrat talking heads were beginning to explode at the prospect of a loss by Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump after nearly every pollster predicted a Clinton landslide.
CNN contributor Van Jones, who was appointed to be Obama’s first “Green Energy Czar” before he was outed as a communist and a 9/11 truther and therefore was forced to resigned in disgrace, was already playing the race card on election night, refusing to accept responsibility for his party nominating someone more qualified for the Big House rather than the White House.
Jones started out by congratulating Trump supporters Jeffrey Lord and Kayleigh McEnany for what was almost certainly a Trump victory, but then immediately turned on the progressive leftist hate, making the election somehow a rejection of the “first black president,” Barack Obama, and labeling the projected Trump win as something he called a “whitelash.”
“This [election] was many things,” Van Jones said to the CNN panel. “True — it was a complete reinvention of politics that’s true. But it’s also about race. We’ve talked about race. This was a whitelash! This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president, in part. And that’s the part where the pain comes.”
