They ‘took a billion dollars, set it on fire and called it a campaign’

Liberal CNN commentator Van Jones trashed Hillary Clinton for wasting $1 billion in donations on the dumpster fire she called her 2016 presidential campaign.
Jones made the remarks at the People’s Summit in Chicago on Saturday, where he slammed Clinton and the Democratic National Committee for spending $1 billion on themselves while paying lip service to helping needy minorities desperate for government handouts.
Jones said Hillary and the DNC burned through cash by employing a motley crew of incompetent consultants and pollsters who failed miserably to gauge the mood of the country:
The Hillary Clinton campaign did not spend their money on white workers, and they did not spend it on people of color. They spent it on themselves, let’s be honest. They took a billion dollars—a billion dollars—and set it on fire, and called it a ‘campaign.’ That wasn’t a campaign.
A billion dollars for consultants. A billion dollars for pollsters. A billion dollars for a data operation that was run by data dummies who couldn’t figure out that maybe people in Michigan needed to be organized.
Jones then laid down other truth bombs on Hillary Clinton and the flailing Democratic party, which he says is sowing division among minorities to distract attention away from their failures: For one, grifter politicians need to stop using their political offices to enrich themselves.
“And now they want us to fight about whether black folks or white workers or Latinos or any other group should get the money,” he said. “First of all, you need to give the money back to the people, period. Quit getting rich off people’s struggles.”
Van Jones’ blistering words for his fellow liberals are a stark contrast to his usual race-baiting rhetoric, where he blames whites for the problems of poor blacks and other minorities.
