CNN’s Van Jones is a crisis actor! He faked mental anguish over the Russian collusion story that he knew was fake

If you’re old enough (or if you listen to Classic Rock stations), you may recall Don Henley’s smash 1980s hit, “Dirty Laundry,” which is an extremely critical look at the “mainstream” media. And as the song’s lyrics make plain, Henley nails it:

Dirty little secrets

Dirty little lies

We got our dirty little fingers in everybody’s pie

We love to cut you down to size

We love dirty laundry…

Kick ‘em when they’re up…

Kick ‘em when they’re down…

We can do “The Innuendo”

We can dance and sing

When it’s said and done we haven’t told you a thing

We all know that crap is king

Give us dirty laundry!

And remember, this song was written in the 1980s; not much has changed at all, has it?

CNN is becoming a case study in how disgustingly dishonest the media really is: How it lies, smears and purposefully distorts in order to undermine and destroy the reputations of people — mostly politicians — they don’t like or agree with.

In the vast majority of cases, the mainstream media’s most-attacked political figures are Republicans. And these days in particular, the most attacked Republican figure is President Donald J. Trump.

For its part, CNN has decided that the best way to both bolster ratings and feed red meat to its deranged viewing base is to continue pushing the fake narrative that Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin got together and launched a sneaky, diabolical plan to “hack” the election and “steal” it from Hillary Clinton.

And to accomplish that, it has essentially employed what can only be described as “crisis actors” — like former Obama administration official and Democrat operative Van Jones.

In a recent undercover media sting perpetrated by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, Jones can be seen and heard discounting the “Russia” story. Asked about it by the undercover journalist, Jones replies:

“The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger,” he says.

“Really?” the undercover media operative replies.

“Yep,” says Jones.

But Jones has been one of the CNN “political experts” pushing the narrative, as the Project Veritas video notes:

And what about that time when he spent election night, upon the realization that Trump was going to be president, pontificating about explaining to his kids how a “bully” and a “bigot” could become president, describing that as his “biggest fear”?

It’s just this kind of nonsensical — and dishonest — representation of events that Jones really ought to explain.

As Zero Hedge notes:

Perhaps it’s time to think about how you can explain to your children why you exploited your position and fame to provoke mass hysteria among a divided American electorate, over a story you knew to be false…hysteria which very well could have contributed to a mass shooting that nearly claimed the life of Steven Scalise.


Kick ‘em when they’re up…

Kick ‘em when they’re down…

Meantime, Jones has continued to denigrate the president over Russia. In May, Jones said on the network that Trump’s response to the FBI’s “Russia” investigation is turning him into “President Snowflake.”

“When he ran, he was this tough guy. This guy is going to get things done. He’s a great negotiator. He’s Trumpzilla. He was going to make Washington bow down. He was going to drain the swamp. Now, he’s President Snowflake.’ Okay?” he said.

“Everything he’s said is, ‘Oh, they’re mean to me,’ and ‘they don’t like me,’ and ‘I just don’t understand it and it’s not fair!’”

Before, he referred to Trump’s win as a “white lash,” again insinuating that a bunch of racists elected him.

We can do “The Innuendo”

We can dance and sing

When it’s said and done we haven’t told you a thing

We all know that “crap is king,” Van.
