Yesterday afternoon, CNN announced that it would be adding Andrew Yang, the former Democratic nominee contender, to the network as a commentator.
Andrew Yang is a former businessman who was running for President up until last week after the results of the New Hampshire Primary came out. Yang came from being a relatively unknown person to rising as one of the high-profile candidates. His fan base had the twitter hashtag “#YangGang” trending multiple times.
Yang even qualified for most of the Democratic debates with his plans to create a universal basic income of $1,000 a month. He will begin work as a commentator tonight at the Las Vegas Democratic debate.
