An obviously angry Al Sharpton couldn’t believe what the House Speaker, Republican John Boehner was trying to do. The politics being played by the House Speaker while real Americans went without jobs was just too much for the MSNBC television host, and Sharpton tore into one of his guests.
His guest for the Tuesday evening segment was liberal talk-radio host Bill Press and a consultant for the Republican party, Matt Mackowiak. Already upset by the apparent contempt President Obama receives regularly from Boehner and the Republican party, Sharpton put Mackowiak in his place when the Republican said that President Obama was disrespecting Nancy Reagan by trying to hold his speech on the same night the Republicans were having their debate at the Reagan Library.
“You’re really not going to say this to me now,” Sharpton shouted, bringing a stop to Mackowiak’s statement. “You know you’re on PoliticsNation … that is patently ridiculous what you just said!”
