CNN’s Van Jones: Trump’s Depiction of a ‘Mad Max America’ ‘Terrified’ Me

van jonesCNN’s Van Jones said tonight he was absolutely terrified by Donald Trump‘s “dark” and mean-spirited convention speech.

He said, “What Donald Trump did tonight was a disgrace. That was a relentlessly… dark speech. He was describing some Mad Max America.”

As far as Jones is concerned, Trump attempted a “schizophrenic psychopathic attempt to pull apart the Obama coalition, but from a political point of view he even botched that.”

And then he said this:

“I’ve never felt this way in my life. I have read in history being in moments where there’s some big authoritarian movement and some leader that’s rising up, and I felt that way tonight, and it was terrifying for me. This speech divided the country… It terrified me.”
