Van Jones’ special, The Messy Truth, is scheduled to return again next week, on Thursday, February 9 at 9 p.m. ET. CNN has aired a handful of these town halls, hosted by the CNN political commentator.
In a past interview with Variety, Jones noted, “We could do this a couple of times a month,” referring to his special.
As noted in the press release, Jones will moderate a conversation between comedian Bill Maher, host of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, and a live studio audience.
The special will take a look at Maher’s history as a major influencer with more than 20 years on television as an outspoken voice in American politics and culture. Less than one month since President Trump has taken office, Jones will lead a timely discussion with Maher and audience members on the administration’s recent Executive Orders, Supreme Court nominee, Cabinet appointments and where America is heading moving forward.
