Just before the 2016 presidential election, CNN analyst Van Jones hit the road to meet with Donald Trump supporters.
Jones filmed the meetings with American voters across the country and shared the visuals with fans in a three-part series called The Messy Truth.
Shot in Gettysburg, PA, last week, the mini web show gives those of you who are bewildered by yesterday’s results a real insight into what White voters were thinking. The question many non Trump supporters are asking: What allowed these voters to put Donald in the White House?
Van suggested in the first episode that The Messy Truth stemmed from a simple longing to get a conversation going. “It’s important that we start talking to each other,” he said in the clip. Amen!
Take a minute and digest this — It’s very revealing and also a little scary, but it just might help in the healing process.
