Fox News Anchor Tries to Trip up Rev. Sharpton Over a 1992 Speech but Fails Miserably

In 1992, Rev. Al Sharpton gave a speech at Kean College in New Jersey.

Back then —-at the nearly three decade old event— Sharpton mocked a man who was suggesting to kill cops and white people.

“What I believe in, I do,” Sharpton said in 1992. “Do what you believe in, or shut up and admit you’ve lost your courage and your guts to stand up.”

However, Fox News’ Jesse Watters made an accusation saying that there is footage of Sharpton promoting violence. But that is far from the truth.

“You don’t have footage saying that,” Sharpton said. “You have me [confronting] a guy who was talking about ‘offing pigs,’ and I said, ‘You ain’t gonna do nothing,’ and I mocked him.”

Watters began to hurl personal attacks at Sharpton. He even brought up the IRS and tax issues Sharpton has taken care of.

Sharpton responded in just telling him that one day when Watters grew up he could be Bill O’Reilly.
