Van Jones has our back

Van Jones has our back. 

Van has a 25+year track record of fighting for us -- the underdogs from all parts of the country. 

Click bait headlines drive up ratings. Many people reacted to a clip and a headline, instead of hearing what Van said. Take a listen for yourself to Van's entire night of commentary:

Watch Van explain. . .again. The virus is mutating. A more Presidential Trump is a more dangerous Trump. We need to adjust our strategy so we can win. He also explained his own Messy Truth in front of a million viewers. 

And more than anything, take a look at some of the ways that Van has always had our back. On environmental issues, criminal justice, racism, rape culture, islamophobia, xenophobia and so much more, Van has been the voice that we need.

As Van says, it is not right vs. left. It is right vs. wrong. 

To the man who has always had ours -- We Got Your Back.
