Van Jones: Bloomberg Was the Titanic, Warren the Iceberg

February 20, 2020

On CNN after the Democrat debate Wednesday, CNN political commentator Van Jones described candidate Michael Bloomberg as the “Titanic” to rival Elizabeth Warren‘s “iceberg” in the debate.

“Listen, this was a disaster for Bloomberg,” Jones said. “Bloomberg went in as the Titanic, billion-dollar machine Titanic. Titanic, meet iceberg Elizabeth Warren. She took him to task in a way that I had never seen in a debate. She took it over. She prosecuted him. But the worst part about it is for me, a lot of African Americans are placing great hope in Bloomberg. Despite the stop and frisk and all that sort of stuff, you’re seeing people trying to move over there, and he just wasn’t ready.”

“He was tone-deaf on issue after issue. And the reason why — he’s not been in the living rooms, he hasn’t done the town halls… His answer on women was terrible. His answer on stop and frisk was as bad as it could be. He lied on the answer when it came to redlining,” he added.

“On every major thing that people who are looking for a champion… he let people down tonight.”
