Al Sharpton ‘Corrects’ Trump at Aretha Franklin’s Funeral

Aug 31, 2018  •  Post A Comment

The Rev. Al Sharpton took a moment while delivering his eulogy at the funeral for Aretha Franklin to “correct” a comment made by Donald Trump after the soul icon died on Aug. 16.

Trump reportedly told pool reporters that day: “I want to begin today by expressing my condolences to the family of a person I knew well. She worked for me on numerous occasions.”

Sharpton was part of a lineup of notables speaking at Franklin’s funeral that included Bill Clinton, Stevie Wonder, Tyler Perry, Smokey Robinson and many others. Sharpton took issue with the idea that Franklin worked for Trump.

  1. What an idiot. Sharpton is a race whore who hurts the Black movement more than he helps. This was a time for honoring Aretha Franklin and the thing that should be remembered was all the tributes to her and her life. But what will be remembered most is Sharpton’s jibe at Trump. He can denigrate Trump all he wants but he didn’t have to do it when all he was supposed to be doing was honoring Franklin. “LOOK AT ME. I TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY WHERE I SHOULD HAVE BEEN HONORING A FANTASTIC WOMAN TO MAKE IT ABOUT ME. AIN’T I GREAT”

  2. Sharpton may not be the brightest bulb in the patch, but anyone who criticizes Dump aka Trump deserves a medal for Dump is nothing but a moronic piece of sheet who should be imprisoned for the rest of his worthless life.

  3. This used to be a respectable publication providing interesting news about the industry with some interesting comments and additional facts added by readers. But it has just become Twitter with people taking cheap shots at each other, that have nothing to do with the articles.
