Terry McAuliffe was so desperate to connect his opponent Glenn Youngkin to Donald Trump that he claimed at his rally Monday night that Youngkin was holding a rally with Trump, which was a lie: Trump had participated in a conference call with the press and endorsed Youngkin, but he certainly didn’t travel from Florida to share a stage with Youngkin.
That doesn’t matter to the press, though — they’ve got Trump on the brain, as did McAuliffe. While waiting for election results to come in Tuesday evening, CNN contributor Van Jones likened Youngkin to a disease, calling him the “delta variant of Trumpism.”

Youngkin is a more passionate Mitt Romney and a conservative.
This just proves that for media there’s no acceptable Republicans. So stop treating these people as anything but the Democrat operatives they are.
Stop being nice. https://t.co/V3MZnhlKGX

That’s not cool Van. Using that type of language furthers the toxic political climate we see in current politics

“Let’s go Brandon” led NBC News’ Ken Dilanian to contact the Secret Service.
No one cares what Van Jones has to say. Even Obama got rid of him.
