VAN JONES: TRUMP ‘BECAME PRESIDENT TONIGHT’ IN MOMENT HONORING NAVY SEAL WIDOW
MARCH 1, 2017
CNN political commentator Van Jones on Tuesday was amazed by the moment during President Donald Trump’s joint address to Congress – when he honored the widow of William “Ryan” Owens, the Navy SEAL who was killed during a raid in Yemen.
“There are a lot of people who have a lot of reason to be frustrated with him, to be fearful of him, to be mad of him, but that was one of the most extraordinary moments you have ever seen in American politics period,” Jones said on CNN.
Jones, a liberal commentator who often criticizes Trump, said the president did something “extraordinary.”
“And for people who had been hoping he would become unifying, hoping that he might find someway to become presidential, they should be happy with that moment,” Jones said.
“For people who have been hoping that maybe he would remain a divisive cartoon, which he often finds a way to do, they should be a little bit worried tonight. Because that thing you just saw him do, if he finds a way to do that over and over again, he’s going to be there for eight years.”
Jones added that he did not agree with the entire speech but he had to admit that Trump delivered.
“But he did something tonight that you cannot take away from,” he said. “He became president of the United States.”
Annoying liberals, it's just too easy. Hard to believe how easy it is.
