CNN commentator Van Jones told host Don Lemon on Tuesday night that Hillary Clinton is one of the most honest politicians in America, NewsBusters reported.
“Meanwhile, it turns out that Hillary Clinton, when you look at the fact checkers, she’s one of the most honest politicians in America according to the fact checker,” said Van Jones, a former White House czar in the Obama administration.
Lemon showed the panel on his show a recent CNN/ORC poll that said Donald Trump was beating Clinton in honesty and trustworthiness among potential voters. Fifty percent of voters see him as more honest and trustworthy, while only 35 percent see Clinton that way.
They are virtually tied in the overall race.
“Does she have to get those numbers up to win?” Lemon asked.
Jones said Clinton has to do something to improve these numbers but added that those figures do not necessarily mean that Trump is honest.
