Anderson Cooper: ‘Why Doesn’t Donald Trump Deserve President Obama’s Silence?’

Van Jones: ‘Trump is coming in to break things’


COOPER: “I mean, George W. Bush could have said when — when President Obama became president, well, when the core values of the Second Amendment are threatened I’m going to speak up. I mean, And yet, he didn’t. He said he deserved silence. Well, why doesn’t pre — why doesn’t Donald Trump deserve President Obama’s silence?”
JONES: “It’s very simple. Because Obama came in to fix things that W. broke. Trump is coming in to break things that — (Laughter) — that — that — Trump’s coming in to break stuff that Obama fixed. So, it’s literally the exact opposite situation. W., horribly unpopular; W., passing off a broken economy, passing off two terrible wars, said that Obama deserves my silence. Obama, passing off a growing economy, passing off at least not two land wars, and — and frankly a country that under his leadership at least was rustling with some of these issues around inclusion. Trump coming in, saying ‘All that sucks, I’m gonna break it.’” (Laughter)
