On Saturday night, Van Jones kicked off his new show on CNN with an in-depth conversation with hip-hop star Jay-Z. The two chatted at length about the Trump presidency, sounding off on the various comments Trump has made during his rise to prominence. Jay-Z even went to far as to call Trump a "superbug" of racism that has seemingly permeated every corner of the country.
Case in point was Trump's recent comments calling various nations 'sh*thole countries,' which Jay-Z described as "really hurtful."
"Everyone feels anger, but after the anger it's really hurtful because he's looking down on a whole population of people and he's so misinformed because these places have beautiful people," he told Jones.
