Van Jones: GOP Field 'Beginning to Look Like the Rainbow Coalition'

 

Van Jones, appearing on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, said Democrats should be “very worried” about the 2016 Republican primary. “This is going to be the greatest show on Earth,” he said.

According to Jones, the GOP field is “beginning to look like the rainbow coalition.”

“You may have a field where you have two Latinos —Cruz and Rubio — you can have an Asian, Jindal, you could have a woman, Carly Fiorina, you could have a black guy, Herman Cain.”

Another panelist jumped in to correct Jones and remind him that he probably meant to say Dr. Ben Carson, not Herman Cain, who briefly flirted with a presidential run in 2012 (chuckles all around the panel). Apparently Van Jones didn’t get the memo that the GOP has more than one “black guy.”

Jones continued, saying that all of this could amount to a field “where you have real superstars and suddenly you’ve got a very riveting primary on their side — nothing on our side,” he said.  “I think Democrats should be very worried about that.”
