It’s the end of the world as we know it, and you likely feel fine, or so some silly song says, but no, seriously, it feels like it’s all about to come crashing down as a sure sign of the end of days has manifested itself for the world to see.
CNN’s Van Jones, one of the most hard left individuals in this country, just recently gave President Trump praise for something, and slammed Obama. In the same day.
See? This is why it feels like a hole has been ripped open in the fabric of space and time. Check this out.
Jones, a frequent Trump critic, reportedly visited President Trump and Jared Kushner at the White House on Friday to discuss the proposed bill, which would, among other things, improve prison conditions as well as the reentry process for prisoners getting released.
During an interview on CNN Monday morning, Jones called the experience of meeting and even getting teased by the president “surreal” after disagreeing with him on 99 percent of issues. And yet, on this issue, they have managed to find common ground.
“On this issue, he has been tough,” said Jones, noting that the president showed compassion for prisoners “that most liberal Democrat would have agreed with.”
“If we can’t get together for liberty and justice for all, something’s wrong with this country,” Jones said on Friday, according to CNN. “We’ll do something on this issue; we’ll fight about everything else, but on this issue, let’s get together.”
“I think the civil rights community right now is actually a little bit divided. Some people are saying if we can’t get everything … we’ll just take nothing,” Jones said. “Well, the problem is, we’ve been saying that now for eight years. We said everything or nothing under Obama and we wound up with nothing. And so I think continuing to do the same thing [and] expecting a different outcome is the definition of insanity.”
Trump spoke last Friday about prison reform saying, “Prison reform is an issue that unites people from across our political spectrum. It’s an amazing thing. Our whole nation benefits if former inmates are able to re-enter our society as productive, law-abiding citizens. Send a bill to my desk. I will sign it.”
It’s absolutely mind-blowing to see someone like Van Jones being open and willing to sit down with the president and actually discuss this issue in a civilized manner, proving that having conservations with those who we might largely disagree with is feasible.
As far as prison reform goes, it certainly couldn’t hurt things to look at how our system operates, as it is incredibly flawed and many individuals who don’t deserve time in prison end up behind bars while dangerous criminals go free. There’s just something wrong with that picture.
