In an appearance on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, Van Jones mocked President Trump’s complaints about his treatment in the media, namely his claim that “no politician in history” has been treated as unfairly as he’s been.
Host Anderson Cooper said that Trump is using Twitter to convey the message that everyone’s out to get him. “I assume that’s why either he just has no control over himself and he just blurts these things out and believes that they genuinely help him stir up the base,” Cooper said.
“What’s interesting is a different Donald Trump,” Jones responded. “When he ran, he was this tough guy. This guy’s gonna get things done, this great negotiator. He was Trumpzilla. He was going to make Washington bow down. He was gonna drain the swamp.”
“Now he’s President Snowflake,” he continued. “Everything he says is about, ‘Oh, they’re mean to me and they don’t like me and I just don’t understand it and it’s not fair.’ So, you have a big brand shift going on.”
