ABC’s “This Week” exploded into an all out dogfight when Republican commentator Mary Matalin excoriated liberal pundit Van Jones over his assessment that racism was a driving force in the election of President-elect Donald Trump.
On the night of the election on CNN Jones, now famously, called the results a “whitelash” and Matalin asked him to retract it on Sunday.
“I said, and stand by it, I said that race was a part and there was a part that alt-right part is part of the whitelash. If you listened to the whole quote you would agree with what I said so I don’t take that back,” Jones said.
“I did listen and you said what do I tell the kids. I’m a black man in America who went to Yale and written books who served a president,” Matalin retorted.
But Jones continued to play the race card, insisting that he is the first member of his family born with all of his rights.
“I do know your daddy, your grandparents were teachers. your grandfather was a bishop,” Matalin fired back.
