Democrat and CNN commentator Van Jones blasted Debbie Wasserman Schultz for the job she is doing as chairwoman for the Democratic National Committee.

Jones was so frustrated, in fact, that he told CNN Wednesday that he would rather have Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus in charge.

Priebus long felt the heat for the chaos at many Donald Trump events but, as the GOP seems to be settling down, the Democratics are now in turmoil following the backlash of Bernie Sanders supporters in Nevada.

Jones, former Green Czar for President Obama, said while Wasserman Schultz should be like an “umpire,” she has instead allowed the Party to divide and succumb to the chaos.

“So you have a situation now where it looks like you have a leadership failure, possibly in both wings of the party,” Jones said. “And Debbie, who should be the umpire, who should be the marriage counselor, is coming in harder for Hillary Clinton than she is for herself.”

“I wish Reince Priebus was my party chair,” Jones added.  “He did a better job handling the Trump situation than I’ve seen my party this situation. I’m ashamed to say that.”
