CNN convened one of its stupid panels to natter on about the implications of electing Trump as our next President, and in the process, Van Jones let two of Trump's dumbest surrogates have it.

Via Mediaite:

McEnany took offense at the idea that people are worried about internment camps, telling Jones, “You should correct that fear! That’s not true! Donald Trump has never proposed internment camps!”

She and Lord pushed back and then Jones said, “You guys won and you need to back off! You need to have a little bit of empathy and understanding for people who are afraid because your candidate has been one of the most explicitly provocative candidates in the history of the country.”

McEnany tried to jump in but Jones snapped, “I’m not gonna be talked over tonight!”

Jones then went on to school them on what is proper now, advising them that it's on them to heal the divides they've opened up in this country.

Forgive me if I don't hold my breath.
