CNN Commentator Slams Trump's SOTU: 'A Psychotically Incoherent Speech With Cookies & Dog Poop'
CNN commentator Van Jones appeared unhappy Tuesday night with President Trump's State of the Union address, describing the 82 minute-long speech as "psychotically incoherent" and filled with "cookies and dog poop."
Following Trump's second address to Congress, Jones explained his metaphor by saying the president combines positivity and condemnation.

"He tries to put together in the same speech these warm, kind things about humanitarianism and caring about children," Jones said. "At the same time, he is demonizing people who are immigrants in a way that was appalling."
Trump framed border security in his speech as halting the flow of illegal drugs from Mexico and preventing human trafficking.
Jones said Tuesday night that the president failed to acknowledge guests in the audience who had been separated from their parents.
"If you're gonna talk about immigration, you're gonna talk about undocumented people, then talk about the one who drowned saving people in Houston after the storm," he said. "Talk about the people who have given their lives for this country."
Syndicated columnist and author Michelle Malkin thanked liberal commentators Wednesday on Fox & Friends for offering their "bitter, clingy and really adamantly deranged attitude" about Trump even before he gave his speech.
Malkin specifically called out Jones for his comments, saying that he should "leave mental health diagnoses to the professionals."
"After all, Van Jones should be reminded that he praised President Trump for something that he highlighted during the address last night," she said, noting that Jones praised Trump's embrace of criminal justice reform.
