CNN commentator Van Jones called it like it is on Tuesday night.
After MSNBC released Donald Trump’s leaked tax returns on Tuesday night, Jones suggested that the left had failed if they considered the fact that Trump paid $38 million in taxes on $150 million in income a victory.

In fact, MSNBC’s hard work has demonstrated that Trump paid a higher tax rate than both former President Barack Obama and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“Here’s the reality. If all we tonight is that Donald Trump paid $38 million to America’s government, that’s a good night for Donald Trump. I’m sorry. I was really hoping and praying that it would show that not only did he pay no taxes but he charged the government and got money back, but there’s nothing I could get excited about here,” said Jones.

But if you ask the left, this was somehow a major victory for them. Just don’t ask them why, because they certainly don’t know.
