Van Jones Upset Over 'The View' Ambush

Van Jones trended online last week after he visited The View, where show hosts called him out for his past support of Trump -- and his u-turn since Biden was elected president.

"You do spend a lot of time threading the middle and trying to unite people, but there are those that really accuse you of being a political opportunist, a chameleon so to speak who provided a racial cover for former disgraced, twice impeached President Trump," Sunny Hostin told Jones during his appearance. "People in the Black community don't trust you anymore." 

A source told Page Six that he's not happy about the interview.

"[Van] expected a friendly environment, and I don't think Meghan even knew there was anything controversial about him," the source said. "It was shocking how intolerant they were."


An insider for The View thinks he focusing on the wrong issue:

"It's unfortunate that instead of addressing the very real distrust of him within the black community, Van chooses to attack two women of color via social media, hiding behind the guise of 'unity,'" the source said. "Van is taking a page from Donald Trump's playbook, whom he called the 'uniter-in-chief' in 2018."
