On his Saturday CNN show, Van Jones has a segment in which he brings several people with divergent political opinions on a ride in a minivan.
On this week’s segment, Jones took a group of two white Trump supporters and one black Democrat on a ride through Atlanta.
At one point they passed by Stone Mountain, site of a notorious Confederate memorial.
“The etching, in stone, is a monument to domestic terrorism,” said the Democrat.
“That makes me so sad because I don’t identify with it that way,” remarked white woman who supported Trump in 2016. “Coming here, I think of all the times with my father, my family—so this seems like a happy place. To hear that it’s hurtful to you—it makes me sad that that’s the impact it has on you, but this is a place where I have really happy memories.”
The Trump supporter began crying and the Democrat said she would give her a hug if they weren’t in a moving car.
But she also didn’t back down on the memorial being racist and hurtful.
“The KKK rallied were here for a reason,” she said.
