WATCH: Vernon Jones blasts MSNBC Host “Let me be clear. You get paid to shape a liberal narrative.”

Democrat Vernon Jones blasted back at a MSNBC Craig Melvin after Melvin asked him “are you a paid campaign surrogate” for Trump.

Vernon Jones says “Let me be clear. You get paid to shape a liberal narrative. You get paid to attack this President. I don’t get a dime from this President. I don’t get a dime from the campaign. Everything i’ve done is based on me and my principles.”

“See that’s the problem” Jones continues “When an African American … you only asked me that because I don’t fit your narrative….and you need to accept that maybe other African Americans support this President.”

In contrast, in February, Craig Melvin went out of his way to point out that Reggie Love’s endorsement of Pete Buttigieg was “from the heart” and he was NOT paid.
