Trump supporter cries when black woman calls her ‘happy place’ Confederate memorial a ‘monument to domestic terrorism’

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.

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.
