Van Jones Awarded Donkey Of The Day For Joe Biden/Kamala Harris Victory Speech Flub

Van Jones Awarded Donkey Of The Day For Joe Biden/Kamala Harris Victory Speech Flub

CNN host Van Jones mistakenly identified the song Vice President-elect Kamala Harris walked out to before her speech on Saturday, and now people are dragging him on Twitter.

“It was great to hear Kamala. I want to decode some of stuff Kamala did for the base of this party,” Jones said on CNN after Harris finished her speech.

“First of all, she walked out to Beyoncé. Drop mic,” he said. “The fact that somebody that’s gonna be in the White House can walk out authentically to Beyoncé was amazing. People were going nuts about the walkout song.”

The only issue was that Harris didn’t walk out to a Beyoncé song — she actually walked out to “Work That” by Mary J. Blige.

People on Twitter subsequently dragged Jones for confusing the two singers.

Multiple people suggested that Jones’ mistake was indicative of his personality as a whole.

Representatives for Jones didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment, but Jones did later clarify on the show that it was indeed Blige’s song featured onstage.
