Van Susteren: Obama Associating with Sharpton Sends ‘Rotten Message’
Greta Van Susteren ended her show Wednesday night with a big question: why is President Obama “picking Reverend Al Sharpton as his liaison in Ferguson“? Van Susteren expressed outrage that a man with Sharpton’s history would get to associate with the President of the United States.
Van Susteren called this a “poke in the eye of many Americans” and cited many of the problems in Sharpton’s past, including the Tawana Brawley case and past anti-Semitic comments he made.
Van Susteren said, “All this and more makes it perplexing that President Obama uses Sharpton as his go-to outreach guy. It’s a rotten message to send to the nation.”
She wondered why Obama wouldn’t go with someone like Cory Booker instead (but she assumed Obama wouldn’t because of a fear Booker would “show him up”).
