The Rev. Al Sharpton appeared on journalist Joy Reid’s MSNBC show and spoke about how the coverage of Donald Trump’s recent indictment on Fox News appears to be racist.
The Harvard graduate said that she was “impressed” with the levels of creativity her conservative counterparts have employed to dogwhistle their racially based biases.
The panel discussed how the Fox Trumper believed his arrest was a badge of honor that should be more appealing to Black voters. His arrest, in their eyes, would make him more relatable to their experiences.
Fox News host Jesse Watters said on the network’s “The Five” show on Aug. 25, “Black Americans online — some of them are saying I’m voting for Trump now because they too have sometimes felt they’ve been unfairly targeted by the criminal justice system.”
