Sharpton: Not Sure Trump’s a ‘Bigoted Guy,’ He’s the White Don King

sharptonAl Sharpton talked at some length about Donald Trump‘s bombast in an interview with Politico‘s Glenn Thrush yesterday.

And Sharpton actually doesn’t think Trump is really a “bigoted guy,” instead saying, “the best way I can describe Donald Trump to friends is to say if Don King had been born white he’d be Donald Trump.”

And it makes perfect sense, given the bombast and self-promoting style of both men.

Sharpton also observed that while Trump is a very right-wing guy, he “adjusts” on a regular basis. And he admitted to Thrush he can’t “dislike him” because Trump is way too entertaining.

You can listen to the full interview above (the Trump talk starts at 14:45).
