CNN political commentator Van Jones went on a bizarre rant against EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) chief Scott Pruitt Friday on “New Day,” accusing him of being passionate about polluting America.
Immediately after Jones began attacking Pruitt, he put on a strange deep southern accent and said Pruitt was responsible for poisoning young people’s bodies.
“We talked a lot about the fact that he’s corrupt, that he spent millions of dollars flying around going to Disney land. All that is terrible, and it’s a teeny weenie little tiny crumb of the crime he has committed against the country,” Jones said.
“I’ve never seen somebody be so aggressive about putting more pollution in the country, more poison into the bodies of young people. This guy is the most reckless deregulator I have ever seen,” Jones added.
Pruitt’s passion is to make the country dirty for America’s youth, Jones said and believes the EPA administrator’s policies will lead to children dying from asthma and cancer.
“He seems to just be passionate about making sure that America is dirtier and less safe for our children. This makes me very angry,” Jones continued.
“They always talk about job killing regulations. We’ve got to get rid of job killing regulation. Now Hold on a second. You’re talking about child killing deregulation. That’s what you’re talking about,” Jones said. “When you start talking about pulling back on clean water, pulling back on clean air, do you know what that means? That means kids going to the hospital with asthma attacks. That means kids dying of cancer. That means hurting America.”
“They get away with this stuff all the time,” Jones added. “He is the worst. He is the worst.”
This isn’t the first time Jones has gone out on a limb to talk about environmental pollution. Back in 2009, a clip of the former Obama green jobs czar surfaced, where he claimed “white polluters” and “white environmentalists” are intentionally poisoning communities of color.
