CNN host Van Jones threw cold water on President Donald Trump's State of the Union Address on Tuesday, comparing offers of bipartisanship to poisonous candy.


"He was selling sweet tasting candy with poison in it," Jones said. "What he said about those young [Dreamers], he implied -- and he did it deliberately -- that Dreamers are gang members. And when you look a the numbers, facts matter."

"Some Dreamers are gang members," CNN contributor Rick Santorum interrupted.

"You know what the number are?" Jones replied. "Thirty-nine kids."

"Ninety percent of the country agrees these young people deserve a shot," he added. "And to smear these young people, it's wrong. It's morally wrong."
