Van Jones strikes again — ripping into Donald Trump’s ‘freakshow infomercial’ press conference

That is the kind of stuff that will ultimately wear badly.”
Jones went on to say that one of the greatest traditions in American democracy is not turning campaign victory speeches into infomercials for the products that one sells with their name on it.
Barack Obama’s former campaign strategist David Axelrod replied that typically when a politician talks about “steaks” on election night, it’s generally not in the literal “red meat” sense of the phrase. It’s more like the stakes that are important.
