Van Jones: Trump Became President Tonight and Democrats Should be Worried
At Red State by Kira Davis --
As CNN somberly waited for President Trump’s first address to congress, anchor Van “Whitelash” Jones lamented that this would be yet another off-the-rails speech by Trump – short on details, long on rage. He asked John King and other co-anchors if Trump supporters would dismiss his contradictory comments and make excuses for him like always, or if they’ll admit they may have misjudged him.
By the end of the evening Jones was singing a different tune, saying Trump became presidential in his first speech and suggesting he was even unifying. The CNN personality was impressed by Trump’s display of compassion during the emotional introduction and ensuing 2-minute standing ovation for Caryn Owens, the widow of slain Navy SEAL Senior Chief William “Ryan” Owens.
