The Libertarian Party candidate for president, Gary Johnson, joined Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation Sunday to discuss the prospects of a third party’s chances of success in 2016. But Sharpton’s real goal seemed to be to defend Hillary Clinton and discredit Libertarians by asking Johnson, “Do you ever have any slight fear even that you may be taking votes from Hillary Clinton and helping to elect Donald Trump?”
Hillary Clinton became the Democratic Party’s nominee for president of the United States last Thursday, and soon after her rival Bernie Sanders announced he was returning to the Senate as an Independent. “I was elected as an independent so I'll stay two years more as an independent,” he said to the press. But this decision raised the ire of MSNBC’s Al Sharpton on PoliticsNation, Sunday, “After all Sanders became a Democrat to be in their primary, to be in their debates, but now he’s leaving the party.”
On Sunday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, it was ironic enough that Daily Beast columnist and MSNBC analyst Jonathan Alter tried to indict GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump on "race" in the presence of career race-hustler and MSNBC host Al Sharpton, but, moments later, the liberal Alter made a point of praising Sharpton as having a "distinguished history as a street protester." That "distinguished history" of Sharpton's includes inciting riots -- some anti-Semitic in nature -- that resulted in arson and a number of homicides.
It didn’t take long for MRC’s Rich Noyes’ prediction regarding the anti-GOP narrative the liberal media would be pushing to come true. Sunday morning on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation host, and riot inciter, Al Sharpton condemned the 2016 GOP platform, “the RNC platform is probably the most conservative one that we have ever seen.” One of the biggest problems with Sharpton’s generalization of the platform is that it’s very similar to previous platforms.
In an attempt to slam the NRA for not being true to their values, MSNBC host and riot inciter Al Sharpton claimed the civil rights organization was not defending the gun owners in the recent police shootings. “In both cases you have people with guns, that were killed by police, legally. One in a carry state of Louisiana, the other had a gun permit. And the NRA -- laryngitis advocating on their behalf,” he falsely claimed during PoliticsNation on Sunday.
The political firebrand that is Al Sharpton spent a segment of his Sunday show, PoliticsNation, praising the Hillary Clinton/Elizabeth Warren combination and condemning anyone who thought otherwise. He even went so far as to accuse women on Fox News of being “anti-woman.” “Apparently just the sight of two powerful outspoken women on stage together is enough to send the right into a tail spin,” he stated, before showing clips of primarily female FNC personalities criticizing Clinton and Warren’s matching outfits.
In a great catch by Washington Examiner’s Eddie Scarry, MSNBC aired Thursday afternoon an hysterical promo for far-left activist Al Sharpton’s PoliticsNation show that’s been relegated to Sunday mornings after low ratings at the previous weekday slot at 6:00 p.m. Eastern. The 30-second clip featured clips of Sharpton speaking to Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton with an MSNBC narrator proclaiming that, among other things, his program “is where a nation gets answers.”
While his MSNBC show PoliticsNation now resides on Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m. Eastern, Al Sharpton has still been doing his best to accuse conservatives of racism at every turn and this Sunday’s edition was no different as he and his assembled panelists claimed that the right has done little to nothing to distance itself from Donald Trump.
David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon was one of those rare Americans who watched Rev. Al Sharpton’s Sunday show on MSNBC. Naturally, a black Democratic congresswoman was complaining Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wasn’t authentically black, and that blacks haven’t been represented on the court since Thurgood Marshall retired.
Sharpton told ultraliberal Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif) that he’s heard talk of Obama nominating attorney general Loretta Lynch to replace recently deceased Justice Antonin Scalia.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's PoliticsNation, Daily Beast columnist Jonathan Alter -- a far-left MSNBC political analyst and frequent critic of conservatives -- surprisingly predicted that the Clintons could be more vulnerable on the issue of Juanita Broaddrick's rape charges against Bill Clinton than they were 15 years ago.
Declaring that "reasonable people" are questioning Hillary Clinton's recent comments on the issue, Alter made a logical point that could have been made by the Clintons' strongest critics.
Talk about an inconvenient truth . . . Don't know if we've ever witnessed such a blatant suppression of facts--even on MSNBC.
Republican strategist Jessica Proud was a guest this morning on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show, which has been turfed out of its weekday slot and relegated to the early Sunday-morning wilderness. When discussion turned to the Benghazi hearing, Proud pointed out that Hillary, Susan Rice and President Obama lied about the cause of the attack. But before Proud could make her case—based on emails Hillary sent acknowledging that the internet video was not the cause—Sharpton shut her down, saying "let's go to other news of the week" and opening a discussion of Joe Biden's decision not to run.
Last week, you may recall, an EPA bureaucrat fouled the Animas River in Colorado by accidentally unleashing a torrent of polluted water from an abandoned mine. Fast forward to today and the Obama/McCarthy EPA's announcement of a new rule intended to tighten methane emissions from oil and natural gas exploration. MSNBC host the Rev. Al Sharpton brought on EPA administrator Gina McCarthy to discuss the new regulation.
As it was virtually impossible to ignore the Animas River contamination, Sharpton sought to quickly dispatch the issue before getting to friendlier territory.
