Al Sharpton Answers Donald Trump's Alleged Racist Comment With This Bizarre Photo Featuring Don King And Jesse Jackson
Many people are saying it is too early to deal with all this madness coming from Donald Trump's Twitter account.
In the wee hours of Monday morning, the former reality TV star turned politician rushed to Twitter to call Al Sharpton a con man.
Trump, who had a lot of time to waste despite having the most powerful country on Earth to govern, spent the entire weekend posting alleged racist tweets against Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), a black Democrat and the city of Baltimore.
Trump has now turned his aim at his former friend and politician. POTUS said this about Sharpton: "I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He “loved Trump!” He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!"
Note that Trump is angry at Sharpton because he bashed him for attacking Cummings.
Sharpton responded by: "This is a 2006 photo of Donald Trump at the National Action Network Convention in NY. In the photo, he’s telling The Godfather of Soul, James Brown and Rev. Jesse Jackson, why despite the fact I marched on him throughout the years, he respected my work. Now I’m a con man and troublemaker, that’s why he came to my events? You are right, Mr. President, I’m going to keep making good trouble against racism and people like you that normalize it."
He added: “We need to stand up and deal with the fact that this president’s policies hurt people all over this country and despite people like Elijah Cummings have delivered for their district and could deliver if they were empowered that we need not get into the sideshow of a man that one minute calls you names and next minute stands up and smiling with you at your convention. He’ll do anything – including his own supporters – if it’s to his advantage. I’m not going to fall prey to that. I’m not going to bite that bait.”
One person had this reaction: "We all know who the REAL conman at work is. Every nonsensical tweet about every non-issue that doesn’t even matter, like this one, is just one way he cons the media. It’s too early for this nonsense!!"
Another commenter stated: "He acts like he said rev Martin Luther it’s Al Donnie we also know Steve Harvey I’m sure he said some bull to you too...But your still the biggest Conman there is, and you are escaping the law the audacity 🤦🏾♀️😩😩Trump, was an incredible supporter of the democratic party until he realized that the Republicans are easier to fool. Hahaha."
This voter made this point: "And Strom Thurmond Sr. was a politician and white supremacist he served for 48 years as the United States Senator from South Carolina. Promoted segregation but had a black daughter he kept private while promoting his racist views and didn't mention her until he was on his death bed. Donations don't make you less racist its a perfect front. Come on ppl Trump is deflecting !!!! So if it’s true doesn’t make Trump any less evil nor racist !!!! STAY FOCUSED!!!"
Trump hopes to divide and conquer in 2020.
