Van Jones to Bill Maher: ‘If Trump Were Black We Would Call Him a Thug’

van-jonesCNN’s Van Jones told Bill Maher tonight, “If Trump were black we would call him a thug.”

Maher first invoked how he asked Ann Coulter recently if the right would freak out if President Obama did what Trump has done (regarding that whole “grab ’em by the pussy” tape).

Jones said if Trump was black, then all the things he said would be looked at through a remarkably different prism.

He went on to say that Trump himself has engaged in race-based attacks of the worst kind, like in the Central Park 5 case.
