After making a passionate election night argument that Donald Trump was playing “footsie” with white supremacists by refusing to disavow the Ku Klux Klan, CNN commentator Van Jones took another crack at trying to get through to Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord on Wednesday morning.

On Wednesday, Jones and Lord went at it again during a New Day segment that was supposed to run less than 10 minutes but stretched to more than 20.
