<p>Opining on how he thought the first 2016 Democratic debate unfolded on Tuesday night, CNN political commentator and former Obama administration official Van Jones compared the <strong>&ldquo;flawless&rdquo;</strong> Hillary Clinton to Beyonc&eacute; and touted his belief that activists in the Black Lives Matter movement were the true winners of the debate.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Speaking first of the Black Lives Matter movement, Jones told<em> The Lead</em> host Jake Tapper that the debate was <strong>&ldquo;the first time that I have seen the entire Democratic Party speak this forthrightly about the issue of anti-black racism and that is a direct result of these young activists who have felt so hopeless and so frustrated.&rdquo;</strong></p>
