  • Al Sharpton: Trump on course to win in 2020 because Dems are ‘too tame’ to deal with him

    The Hill ^ | 06/06/18 | Luis Sanchez
    Rev. Al Sharpton reportedly said Wednesday that President Trump is set to win reelection in 2020 because Democrats are “too tame to deal with an untamed opponent." The reverend told The Guardian during a visit to the U.K. that Democrats likely to face off against Trump in 2020 are failing to excite opposition to the president. He said a lack of leadership would lead to a bad result for Democrats in the midterm elections and noted that mobilization is needed for a landslide win. “They’ve lost the ability to dramatize,” Sharpton said. “He understands spectacle and drama and they don’t.”...

    Roseanne Barr lost her new television show. Barr, in a tweet about Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, said of Jarrett: "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." The comedian deleted the offensive tweet, but the damage was irreversible. The reaction was swift. The Rev. Al Sharpton tweeted: "The comparison ... of ... Valerie Jarrett to an APE is racist and inexcusable. ABC must take action NOW!" The Disney-owned ABC issued the following statement: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show." Barr left Disney little choice....
  • Schultz: MSNBC Fired Me Because They Were 'In the Tank for Hillary' and I Supported Bernie

    Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz opened up in a recent interview about why he believes he was fired in 2015. Schultz, who’s now anchor of a show on RT, told National Review‘s Jamie Weinstein that he believes it was because he supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which was problematic, he charged, because the network was “in the tank for Hillary Clinton.”He described how MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was a "watchdog" who closely managed which stories were covered, and relayed one incident where his story about Sanders’s launch of his campaign was bumped in favor of other news. Sanders gave his official campaign...
  • “Watch it, Howard”: Dean Takes Shot at Hillary, and Sharpton Doesn’t Like It

    Who’s at the top of the list of people “relitigating 2016?” Hillary Clinton, of course, who has blamed her loss on everything from James Comey to the Curse of the Bambino. So on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning, when Howard Dean emphatically instructed people relitigating 2016 to “leave us alone,” who do you think he had most in mind? Right. Sharpton apparently didn’t want his show to become a platform for criticizing Clinton: “Uh, uh, uh: watch it, Howard. You’re getting a little snippy.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    CBS This Morning never opens without a cheap shot at Donald Trump. Charlie Rose noted the Donald Trump was praising the relief efforts "others" were saying it was taking too long. Never mind that this is an island 1,000 miles from Miami. This isn't Texas or Florida. Never mind the 8,000 personnel that are currently there. Never mind that. Let's talk about who made the relief efforts much more difficult than they might have been otherwise. Hillary Clinton.Clinton has been bashing Trump non-stop since the hurricane struck the island. Trump is "not interested" in talking about Puerto Rico says she....
  • ESPN’s Jemele Hill: Leaving SportsCenter was “100% My Choice”

    Of course! Who wouldn't want to leave ESPN's flagship show, viewed weekly by millions, and move to an obscure website read by . . . dozens? In October, Jemele Hill was suspended by ESPN for, among other things, calling President Trump a "white supremacist." ESPN more recently announced that Hill would be moving from her role as SportsCenter host to writing for a website called The Undefeated. On Al Sharpton's MSNBC show today, Hill claimed that her move from SportsCenter to The Undefeated was "100% my choice." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Al Sharpton hit President Donald Trump for his weight during comments marking Martin Luther King Jr., Day in Harlem, quipping he should order three Big Macs instead of two. According to New York Times writer Shane Goldmacher, Sharpton complimented New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D.) as a "national celebrity" and, perhaps alluding to potential White House ambitions, said Trump should "get your best gloves out" before making the joke about Trump's fondness for fast food. It's a noteworthy comment from Sharpton, given his former obesity. The now slimmed down-Sharpton once weighed more than 300 pounds. In 2014, the New York...

    Say “Al Sharpton” in conservative circles, and the likely response is a recitation of his incendiary past, including Tawana Brawley, the Crown Heights Riot and Freddie’s Fashion Mart. But people can and do change. And when people on the left change in a positive way, it’s good for us on the right to acknowledge it. So I’m going to say something that might not be well received by some fellow conservatives, but that I believe is true: Al Sharpton has become a more mellow, constrained and responsible person. I first wrote about it six years ago, during the Trayvon Martin...

    It’s not unusual for Al Sharpton to have his entanglements with the English language. His “resist we much” moment from 2011 has become a cult classic. But on his MSNBC show this morning, there was something different about Sharpton’s stumbles. It wasn’t just his repeated flubbing of the name of rapper Meek Mill’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina. It was the super-slow cadence with which Sharpton spoke. For those old enough to remember, think 78RPM record played at 45. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    One of the obstacles to rational discussion of guns in America is the profound ignorance about guns on the part of many pushing for tighter controls. Take Al Sharpton on his MSNBC show this morning. Debating the subject with Liberty University Professor Daniel Howell in the context of the Sutherland Springs church massacre, Sharpton decried the availability of automatic and “semi-automatic weapons.” A bit later, Sharpton suggested that “we should outlaw automatic weapons, semi-automatic weapons.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren asked Rev. Al Sharpton and a mostly black crowd for an “amen” during a speech she was giving at a National Action Network conference Thursday. . . . “So when the Trump administration and the Republicans take steps to undermine equal rights, to roll back economic opportunity or to subvert equal justice under law, then we’re going to call them out and we’re going to fight back every single time,” Warren declared, before asking “Can I have an amen on that?”

    With the Rev. Al Sharpton at his side, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy made a campaign stop today at a hi-tech education center in Newark's South Ward, saying the state needed to support urban youth to succeed in a globalized and digitized economy. "We've got to be here, backing up these kids, to make sure that they can achieve all that they can achieve," said Murphy, flanked by Newark Mayor Ras Baraka and Newark native Sheila Oliver, the Democratic lieutenant gubernatorial candidate. "Centers like this are at the very center of our economy. This is the future of our economy."

    Q. How do you know that Charlottesville has caused the left to utterly lose its mind? A. When Al Sharpton—Al Sharpton!—gets attacked by a fellow liberal for refusing to go far enough in his condemnation of President Trump. Today’s Morning Joe offered the spectacle of Donny Deutsch—a quintessential Upper West Side/Hamptons liberal—attacking Sharpton for refusing to label Trump a “racist.” Deutsch accused Sharpton of “dancing around” the issue by merely saying that Trump “plays to” racism. Deutsch: “Don’t you need to now come out . . . He’s a racist! Can you say he’s a racist? . . . You...
