Trump: Con Man Al Sharpton “Hates Whites And Cops”

Mediaite reports:

President Donald Trump went after Rev. Al Sharpton Monday morning in what cynics may see as a rather craven attempt to drive an ugly news narrative in which critics see the President driving a racist and/or racialized series of political attacks against people of color.

In the economics of Twitter fame and attention, Trump’s attacks on Sharpton are only going to bring more attention to the vocal Trump critic, and also drive more support from Sharpton’s fans, and animus from Trump supporters who see Sharpton in the one-dimensional manner in which he is described.

In other words, his tweet will only further divide an already divided electorate, and drive the weekly news narrative, starting on a very early Monday morning before 7 AM.
