CNN’s Van Jones warns Bernie Sanders the message of “Joe Biden sucks” is not enough to grow your movement.
VAN JONES, CNN: You saw — you saw saw in those features tonight the difference that a week makes. It sounded like Joe Biden was running against Trump, and it sounded like Bernie was running against Joe. In other words, Joe turned in a very, I think, positive way to the bigger challenges. And what you saw Bernie, he locked down, he took a blowtorch to Biden. Now, the case he wants to prosecute is an honest case. There is disappointment in this party with that wing, with the things that the Clintons and the Bidens and those guys did back in the Nineties. But if the only thing you’re going to do is say Joe Biden sucks, I don’t know how that grows your movement. I don’t think that it’s enough to even get the young people. The logic of this — of his revolution has been young people are going to come out in big numbers. We have not yet seen it. The Latinos are going to stay with him. They did, but not in the numbers that he needed, and it was, in some ways, offset in terms of why vote. GLORIA BORGER, CNN: And if you look at these numbers tonight and these — a bunch of these exit polls, Joe Biden has high favorables. JONES: Yes. BORGER: So if you’re going to be Bernie Sanders, and you’re going to attack empathetic Joe, which is what he is and which is what Beto O’Rourke talked about, and anybody who’s endorsed him has talked about — JONES: How’s that going to work?
