Opining on how he thought the first 2016 Democratic debate unfolded on Tuesday night, CNN political commentator and former Obama administration official Van Jones compared the “flawless” Hillary Clinton to Beyoncé and touted his belief that activists in the Black Lives Matter movement were the true winners of the debate. 

Speaking first of the Black Lives Matter movement, Jones told The Lead host Jake Tapper that the debate was “the first time that I have seen the entire Democratic Party speak this forthrightly about the issue of anti-black racism and that is a direct result of these young activists who have felt so hopeless and so frustrated.”
