Van Jones and Jason Miller Slug it Out in Heated ‘Sh*thole’ Debate: ‘Don’t try to Bait Me’

CNN analysts Van Jones and Jason Miller went at it Thursday night over President Donald Trump’s reported “sh*thole” comment during a heated Anderson Cooper: 360 debate.

Jones — a former advisor to President Barack Obama — tried to get Miller, a former spokesman for President Donald Trump, to condemn Trump’s remark.

“That is wrong and you should denounce it,” Jones said. “I know you very well. You should denounce it…Why won’t you denounce that? Why. Won’t. You. Denounce. S. Hole. Nation?”

Miller tried to avoid responding to Jones’s question. Jones pressed.

“Do you think Africa is an s-hole continent?” Jones asked. “I’m talking to you man-to-man.”

The former Trump spokesman replied, “You’re trying to bait me.”

He added, “There are s-hole places all around the world…Great effort to try to bait me.”
