Activist and MSNBC personality Al Sharpton was flustered multiple times in a heated exchange with Fox News host Megyn Kelly. The issue revolved around Sharpton’s backing of Michael Brown, the black teen fatally shot by officer Darren Wilson in 2014, despite the Department of Justice’s ruling that Wilson was justified in his self-defense.
“Machine Gun” Kelly ripped Sharpton to shreds with every statement she made, leaving the reverend scurrying about in a collapsing corner — until he was desperate enough to ask her to “calm down.”
“Watch it with ‘calm down,’” Kelly said. “Ask Bill O’Reilly about that. I had to lecture him on that one himself.”
Check out the discussion, which Kelly aired on her primetime show:
Throughout the discussion, Sharpton maintained that the witnesses he talked to trumped the evidence of the DOJ. As a result, he found no reason to apologize for any of his racially charged diatribe in Ferguson, Missouri.
“I stated what I believe,” Sharpton said. “I’m an opinion guy.”
Kelly replied, answering that his opinion had proven to be wrong. She poked the bear again by asking if he bore responsibility for Wilson’s inability to interact with society safely due to his “fame.”
“You don’t talk to all the witnesses,” Kelly said. “The DOJ does. They get people in there, and it can be a crime to lie to an FBI agent. It’s not a crime to lie to Rev. Al.”
That’s when the notorious “calm down” came into effect by the reverend.
Fast forward through the interview, and you’ll see a slightly awkward ending to the chaotic conversation.
“I reported what the DOJ said,” Sharpton said.
“About the death of Michael Brown?” Kelly said.
“I don’t know that I stated the line you want, but you didn’t see me out there protesting afterward, did you?” Sharpton asked.
When Kelly said nothing, Sharpton grabbed hold of the microphone and pointed it back in Kelly’s face. “Did you?” he repeated.
I’m pretty sure she was speechless due to a certain individual’s lack of brainpower. Or maybe she was trying to calculate the number of times Sharpton sat quietly on the sidelines while destructive riots took place. Perhaps she was trying to think of all the times he actually called for demonstrations against the police during his numerous tirades in Missouri.
Whatever the case may be, it was a glorious to see the race-baiter being forced to see facts of what when down in Ferguson.
