PICKET: (video) Sharpton calls Cain's explanation of sex harassment cases too 'inconsistent'

← return to Water Cooler


Rev. Al Sharpton spoke to the Washington Times affiliated radio show America’s Morning News on Monday and spoke about his thoughts on Herman Cain as well as Occupy Wall Street. 

Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly asked on his program last week where Revs. Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were on Mr. Cain’s current sexual harassment controversy. “If this were a liberal politician, you can’t sit there and tell me Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton wouldn’t be screaming bloody murder,” O’Reilly said. 

 Sharpton replied to O’Reilly saying, “We have spoke about Herman Cain. I speak every night on my show. I’ve spoken on any number of platforms about his inconsistencies.” 

“I think Bill O’Reilly’s problem is that I’m not saying what he wants me to say about Mr. Cain. It’s not that I’m not speakng. It’s that I’m not singing Mr. O’Reilly’s song,” Sharpton added.
