NEWARK, N.J. – The “Reverend” Al Sharpton dropped into Newark this weekend to hand out water and, as is his practice, exploit a difficult situation (the water line crisis) for personal gain.
But Sharpton didn’t just promote himself; he also ran interference for Newark mayor Ras Baraka at a press conference.
Wow. Al Sharpton, a host on MSNBC (you know, the news channel?), keeping the news media from asking the mayor of Newark questions. https://t.co/4G7iNnxbbg
