Van Jones made a questionable claim on Real Time

Last edited Sat Feb 15, 2020, 11:23 AM - Edit history (1)

that the DNC rigged the 2016 primary. While it was shown that some had a bias for Clinton, I donít recall there ever being ever evidence of them taking any action to rig the outcome. Is there?

Here is a link to his comments:

What is he talking about?

14. Hillary was prepared for all the questions...

 

... so she wouldn't need Donna's "help" at all - Donna really should have known better.

8. The primaries

 

Are run by the states not the DNC. The DNC had very little influence on the voters. They were basically broke. They never ran any ads or anything like that for Hillary or against Bernie. Bernie I am pretty sure had more money than Hillary. Hillary received almost 4 million more votes. No one has ever explained to me how it was rigged? They just make the claim without any details.

9. Yup, Jones claimed the DNC "put the thimb on the scale." WTF?

 

That is a bullshit right wing conspiracy theory Trump is pushing. Why is Van Jones repeating it?

13. This is/was being pushed by...

 

... Trump and FOX, and they are saying it's being rigged again. Bernie is doing well, though, and IA (caucus) and NH (area) going first favors him... it's not rigged as much as it's him getting an advantage because it's there; any candidate would be happy ... but back to the point - this is really a Trump/FOX propaganda story, imo...

16. actually he lied on Real Time

 

Here is what happened. Bernie made no effort to appeal to black voters, black voters voted for Hillary in droves, Sanders lost end of story. To his credit, Sanders seems to have internalized that lesson to a decent extent with somewhat different results in terms of polling.

18. Sanders' campaign did break thru the firewall of a DNC server and steal Clinton voter info.

 

Is that what he mean?

21. Actually, he said someone put their thumb on scales. I think there was some of that, unfortunately.

 

But, not sure it really made a difference.
