Van Jones Slams Donald Trump: 'We Have a Superpredator Running for President'
It was gloves off big time for Van Jones on CNN's 'State of the Union' Sunday.
With his characteristic clarity, Jones told the panel that the issue with Donald Trump's recent leaked tape was not what Trump said, "not the bad words, it's the bad deeds. He’s saying he feels he has the right as a star to sexually assault women.”
This is the so-called "law and order" candidate, Jones pointed out furiously.
This is the guy who gained notoriety all those years ago, for going after the "Central Park Five," the five black teenagers accused then exonerated for sexual assault,and never ever apologized. (In fact, Trump doubled down on it just this week.)
The horrific hypocrisy too much for Jones. "He comes on the scene. He says these five boys committed sexual assault — and they were innocent," Jones rails. "He never apologized! He said Mexican immigrants are rapists, sexual assaulters. It turns out the sexual assaulter, the superpredator is the man running for president! We have a superpredator named Donald Trump. I want to challenge the media now: put up the pictures of those five young innocent black boys and Donald Trump and ask America, ‘Who is a thug here? Who is a thug?’ It’s Donald Trump.”
