Van Jones: 'Nancy Pelosi Is the Greatest Person Ever

Video

"She is strong. She’s tough. She’s smart. She gets beat up in the press and nobody sticks up for her."

So, Van Jones really likes House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

During an interview with the YouTube channel THNKR, Jones said went as far to say that things "would be a thousand times worse" without Pelosi.

"I think Nancy Pelosi is the greatest person ever," Jones said. "She is strong. She’s tough. She’s smart. She gets beat up in the press and nobody sticks up for her and says, 'Hold on a second, everything you don’t like about the Democrats — you think the Democrats are too weak — would be a thousand times worse if we didn’t have Nancy Pelosi, who’s been the backbone throughout this whole last couple of years.' I desperately want her to get that speaker’s gavel back."

Jones, who was appointed by President Obama as "special advisor for green jobs" in 2009 before resigning, said the responsibility to fix the country also falls on the American people.

"We’re a better country than we’re showing up right now," he added, telling people to stop complaining and start taking action. "We have to work harder. We have to be smarter."

Jones also revealed that he is a "huge fan" of Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, a comic book fanatic and a regular watcher of the TV show "Scandal."
