CNN’s newsroom went up in flames for this idiotic reason

CNN Commentator Van Jones

No one can doubt that CNN has had a rough go of it lately. With failing ratings and constant scandals, the organization is on its last thread.

And now CNN’s newsroom went up in flames for this idiotic reason.

In the aftermath of former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s announcement that she was withdrawing from the GOP presidential race, leaving former President Donald Trump as the presumptive nominee for 2024, CNN Commentator Van Jones said on Wednesday that President Joe Biden could pick up Haley’s supporters and donors by telling them that if they turned to Trump, they would see “Russian tanks rolling through Europe.”

Jones was speaking with CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, who urged him to discuss Haley’s withdrawal.

“From my heart, I tell you, this is a heartbreaking moment, and not just for people in the United States,” Jones said.

“If you’re a Ukrainian soldier, looking at a wall of Russians coming at you, and having to ration your bullets, today is a bad day because one of the great champions of the United States being strong for our allies, strong for democracy, just went down in defeat today. And you feel more alone and more afraid of the future. If you’re in Poland, if you’re in Europe, and you’re looking at a wall of Russians coming for you, and saying, where’s the United States? Today is not a good day.”

“This is a bad day for democracy,” he said.

“Not just in the United States, but around the world.”

“What does President Biden need to do at this point to earn those Nikki Haley supporters, bring them into the fold?” Acosta asked.

“We saw the Biden campaign putting out a statement from President Biden almost immediately after Nikki Haley walked off that stage in South Carolina. What do you think?”

“I think he needs to talk to her donors and her supporters and say, if you want to, a year from now, watch Russian tanks rolling through Europe, then, you know, endorse Donald Trump and get on that bandwagon,” Jones declared.

“But understand, you’re going to wake up one morning and you’re going to see horror across Europe and you’re going to have American soldiers, sailors having to go over there and do something that we could have done with dollars, we have to do with blood.”

The irony of this all is that the original conflict was sparked under the watch of Barack Obama back in 2014.

Russia invaded, occupied, and eventually annexed Crimea.

After Obama’s tenure, Donald Trump led the country for four years without so much as a peep from Russia.

Then, after being ousted from the White House, Biden took over.

Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, one year after Joe Biden’s administration began.

Since then, hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent on a war with a currently static frontline.

The wars started and progressed under Democrats, but somehow Trump is the bane of Ukraine because he questions where the money is going and how much other European nations are contributing?
