Appearing as a guest on Morning Joe Wednesday, liberal Rev. Jim Wallis discussed his book Christ in Crisis: Why We Need to Reclaim Jesus. Not surprisingly, it did not take long for Wallis to begin trashing President Trump and white evangelical Christians. Another member of the panel, the incendiary Al Sharpton, accused white evangelicals of “submitting to white nationalism and Trump,” a point that Wallis seemed to agree with.
On Sunday, outspoken race baiter and Sunday MSNBC host Al Sharpton dedicated his weekly “gotcha” segment to a full-throated celebration of Democratic gains in Tuesday’s election. At one point, Sharpton implied that a Trump golf course in Loudoun County, Virginia was somehow in danger now that an obscure critic of the President had been elected to serve on that county’s board of supervisors.
Over the past couple of weeks, MSNBC, NPR, and CBS have given a mostly unchallenged forum to liberal attorney Benjamin Crump to promote his new book, provocatively titled Open Season: Legalized Genocide Against Colored People, in which he promotes an alarmist view of widespread discrimination against the country's minority population, covering issues from police violence, high incarceration rates, and alleged "voter suppression."
Joe Scarborough has a verbal tic—or is it a tick?—about bedbugs. When Doral was under consideration as the G-7 site, Scarborough, on multiple Morning Joe episodes, went on riffs about bedbugs at the hotel, playing off a lawsuit someone had brought about being bitten. On today's Morning Joe, Al Sharpton managed to work Doral bedbugs into the conversation. That triggered Joe's bedbug fascination yet again. In the course of 90 seconds, the b-word was mentioned no fewer than 18 times.
During an interview with 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, PoliticsNation host Al Sharpton failed to push back on the far-left Democrat when he compared the Trump administration to the Third Reich. O’Rourke basically had free rein to compare the President to Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, while Sharpton, well-known for making incendiary remarks himself, allowed him to filibuster.
Nicolle Wallace and her MSNBC Deadline: White House panel went through the pretense on Friday that President Trump is suffering from Alzheimer's and discussed his removal from office due to the 25th Amendment. The big problem with this scenario they claim is that his cabinet is not intact. Oh, and also the fact that they would not vote to remove him even if they were intact.
There is clearly a method in Donald Trump’s Twitter madness. He attacked Rev. Al Sharpton as a "con man" who "hates whites and cops." This caused leading Democrats to rush to Twitter to defend Sharpton as a lifelong leader in "civil rights" and whitewashed his hateful, hoaxster past. That's just the way his NBC bosses describe him. Who, precisely, is enabling racial hatred?
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows seized on left-wing MSNBC host and controversial activist Al Sharpton attacking President Trump as a “racist” and “bigot.” What was completely missing from the coverage was any mention of Sharpton’s own history of offensive language and racial divisiveness.
Over the last few days, President Donald Trump has used his Twitter account to go after Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings and “civil rights leader” Al Sharpton. The New York Times could not resist, featuring not one but two front-page stories Tuesday, while egregiously calling the racially inflammatory Sharpton a “civil rights leader” and blotting out his past offenses against decency. The Times lead story led with the race card: "President Trump widened his war on critics of color on Monday with new attacks on the Rev. Al Sharpton and other political opponents."
There is perhaps no bigger race-baiting charlatan of the last three decades than Reverend Al Sharpton. The President of the National Action Network has spent his entire career pushing race-hoaxes, inciting race riots, peddling anti-Semitic slurs, and grifting towards powerful figures that boosted his profile. Through all of it, he was rewarded with a lucrative TV career at MSNBC and being called “arguably the country’s most influential civil rights leader” by Vanity Fair.
Following a full report on Monday’s Today show denouncing President Trump’s criticism of Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings, fill-in co-host and NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt fretted that Trump had a new target: “Hallie, the President’s also going after longtime civil rights advocate Al Sharpton this morning. Do we know why?”
How about that, perpetually aggrieved House Democrat Illhan Omar and President Trump have something in common -- both want to make America great, at least as Al Sharpton sees it. The difference being, Trump remembers an America that was great before it fell into decline while Omar sees no greatness whatsoever in its past, again according to "the Reverend" Sharpton.
