SELLOUT: Failed Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang Joins CNN as Political Commentator

Failed Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang presented himself as a revolutionary choice to the people while on the campaign trail, with his campaign centering around the idea of a universal basic income of $1,000 per month for all Americans.

However, after his campaign fizzled out following poor showings in the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary, Yang is dropping all of the revolutionary branding and joining CNN as a political commentator.

He will be making his first appearance on the network tonight to discuss the Democrat presidential debate.

“Yang, a businessman who ended his campaign last week, rose from obscurity to become a highly-visible candidate, rallying a coalition of liberal Democrats, libertarians and some disaffected Republicans to form a devoted group of followers known as the Yang Gang,” CNN wrote to describe their new political commentator.

“A prominent platform in his campaign was his so-called Freedom Dividend, a plan to give every American adult $1,000 a month universal basic income that he argued would alleviate a host of social ills and eradicate poverty,” CNN added.

While Yang portrayed himself as an outsider on the campaign trail, he was actually an operative of former President Barack Obama with deep ties to the Democrat Party establishment. He was named as a “Champion of Change” by Obama in 2012 and met with the former President.

“We created the Champions of Change program to honor ordinary Americans who are doing extraordinary things,” said former President Obama. “By making their communities better places to live, our Champions are helping to ensure that our country’s best days lie ahead.”

In addition, Obama tapped Yang to be his Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship in 2015.

“I’m very proud to share that I was named a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship and am heading to the White House today,” Yang said as he prepared to meet with the former president.

“Being named a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship is a tremendous honor, but I feel that we still have a long way to go in order to achieve our potential,” he added.

Obama even endorsed Yang’s notion of a universal basic income, which would put all Americans on the welfare dole, in 2018.

“It’s not just money that a job provides,” Obama said in an economic policy speech. “It provides dignity and structure and a sense of place and a sense of purpose. So we’re gonna have to consider new ways of thinking about these problems, like a universal income.”

For doing the bidding of the Democrat establishment, Yang will be rewarded with a cushy spot as a commentator for the world’s fake news leader.
