CNN’s Van Jones Tears Into Trump for ‘Freakshow Infomercial’ of a Press Conference

van jonesAs we reported earlier, Donald Trump spent a big chunk of his election night press conference hocking his various businesses. He was actually surrounded by Trump Water, Trump Wine, Trump Steaks, etc. and bragged about what a great businessman he is.

Right after Trump’s speech, CNN’s Van Jones trashed it as a “freakshow infomercial.”

“That is inappropriate!” he cried. “It is inappropriate to run an election, to run a campaign, [when you] have people… voting for their jobs, voting for their families… to be talking about Trump Steak.”

Jones suspected that kind of talk would wear out its welcome.

David Axelrod quipped that normally when politicians talk about stakes on election night, it’s not the literal red meat they’re talking about…
