CNN host will leave you speechless with what he said on Election Night
Democrats woke up Tuesday expecting a blue wave.
But then votes started coming in.
And what one CNN host said on election night will leave you speechless.
The blue wave did not materialize.
Early returns in a key Kentucky house district showed Republican congressman Andy Barr fending off his Democrat challenger.
That signaled there would be no wave.
In addition, the first Senate returns in Indiana showed Republican Mike Braun would unseat Joe Donnelly and the Republicans would not only hold the majority, but that they would increase their numbers.
CNN’s Van Jones went on the air and expressed his dismay.
He described that the election returns were “heartbreaking.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Republican Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn is projected to win her Senate race against Democrat Phil Bredesen while Republican Mike Braun ousted Democratic incumbent Sen. Joe Donnelly in Indiana.
“This is heartbreaking,” Jones said. “It’s heartbreaking. The hope has been that antibodies would kick in. That this sort of infestation of hatred and division would draw a response from the American people, really in both parties, to say, ‘no.’”
“That does not seem to be happening tonight,” Jones admitted. “It’s not a blue wave but it’s still a blue war. We’ve gotta continue the fight forward.”
The night got worse for Democrats.
They won fewer House seats than anyone expected and the Republicans beat expectations in the Senate.
Liberals like Jones were ‘heartbroken’ because their dreams of a blue wave crashed when they ran up against Trump’s red wall.
