On Sunday’s State of the Union, host Jake Tapper was talking to his panel about the enthusiasm gap between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton among liberals. Tapper asked Van Jones: “ Van, when she was a senator, correct me if I'm wrong, she was a fairly moderate Democrat. I mean she wasn't this progressive firebrand?” Jones agreed: “And neither was the Democratic Party, a party of firebrands.”
Correct me if I’m wrong? When confronted on Sunday afternoon by a friend on Twitter about Hillary’s actual liberal voting record in the Senate, Tapper retracted the remark on Twitter.
