The mainstream media went into full meltdown mode over the comments made by Donald Trump about accepting the validity of the November elections. Once again, they are assuming they know what he meant and projecting what they want to believe he means onto his statements.
As the topic played out, pundits, talking heads and the chattering class couldn’t help themselves from injecting their opinions onto Trump’s statements as fact. And one of CNN’s blathering class, Van Jones – a hyper-Progressive Leftist better described as a Marxist, laughingly called into question Trump’s patriotism, even as he tried to inject Russia’s Vladimir Putin into the mix. “This man has demonstrated an appalling lack of patriotism,” the one-time special adviser to Pres. Obama said.

But that didn’t stop the mainstream media from deciding that he had said he wasn’t going to accept the results of the November 8th ballots. In fact, they all assumed that he wouldn’t almost before he was finished talking about the subject and the opinions started flying.
“The appalling lack of patriotism from this man, to stand there and say that…to praise Putin and Assad more than he has praised any American president…he doesn’t talk about George Washington, he doesn’t talk about Ronald Reagan the way he talks about Putin and Assad,” Jones thundered almost hysterically. “This man has demonstrated an appalling lack of patriotism and you should be ashamed yourself for defending it.”
