Jones was covering the “Impeach Trump” rally in Lower Manhattan on Saturday when the incidents occurred, with one leftist telling him to go back to Fox News “where there’s more cotton for you to pick.”
Fox News reports:
According to a Fox News producer at the scene, two men walked up to Jones near the end of the rally and told him to go back to Fox News “where there’s more cotton for you to pick.”
The producer said he asked one of the men: “What did you just say?” When the man made the same comment, the producer asked if he “was really going to say that,” to which the man responded: “I sure am.”
…With Jones’ camera rolling, the man confronted by the producer, wearing a gray shirt, turned his back to the camera and made an obscene gesture. The second man, wearing a red shirt, told Jones: “He’ll tell you to go back to Kenya next.”
“You say what now?” Jones asked.
“He’ll tell you ‘go back to Kenya’ next,” the man in the red shirt said.
Jones appeared on Fox News’ Hannity last night where he discussed the rally.
“This is who they are, Sean,” Jones said. “So often, those of us that are on the right are painted as the racist people, the hateful people … I was just asking these people simple questions about if they felt like the president should be impeached or not. These guys come up to me and they say, go back to Fox News to pick cotton. They say, go back to Kenya. This is who these people are, but I doubt many people in the media are going to condemn these people.”
