Al Sharpton Messes Up Spelling of Legendary Aretha Franklin Song: ‘R-E-S-P-I-C-T’

BY: Paul Crookston

August 19, 2018 9:23 am

 

MSNBC’s "PoliticsNation" host Rev. Al Sharpton called on President Donald Trump to be respectful in his rhetoric toward women but inadvertently misquoted legendary singer Aretha Franklin's most famous lyric.

 

Sharpton was addressing Trump’s insults toward Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former White House aide and "Apprentice" contestant who wrote a new tell-all book criticizing him. Trump called Newman a "dog," a favorite insult of his that Sharpton called an "animalistic slur."

 

"I think you might’ve learned the lesson this week, sometimes the dog bites back with a book deal," Sharpton said.

 

Sharpton concluded his comments with a reference to Franklin's 1967 hit "Respect," in which the singer spelled the word out. Sharpton and Franklin, who died last week at the age of 76, were close friends.

"So in the words of my late friend Aretha Franklin, show some R-E-S-P-I-C-T, and the next time you get a black woman and a beagle confused, remember this: I got you," Sharpton said.

 

In the song, Franklin did not spell it that way.

I had no idea he still had a show. However, I was still very much under the impression that he is a moron. Glad that truth has held. ;)

He definitely came up with an ethnic slur against Hispanics. :whistling:

 

Nothing's changed, Sharpton's never been the sharpest knife in the drawer (pun intended).

 

Why he has a following in the black community baffles me.

If he's not smart enough to spell a word that is actually spelled out in the lyrics of the song he quoted, how much credibility does his opinion have?

 

Zero. He's a street hustler. A con artist cashing in on White Guilt.

 

I pity the fool that gives this charlatan anything more than the time of day.

How about we put him up against Jeremy Corbyn or Nicola Sturgeon in an IQ contest?

 

That'd be a hoot.

As he rushes to remain relevant, he continues to show himself to be a fool, a gargantuan fool.

Sad part is, I think he was reading a script.

Hey Al.

 

There is no "I" in "team".

 

There is also no "I" in "respect".

 

It's always about "I" with you, you selfish racist pimp.

Ahem. Monty's not here, so I have to be the one. It wasn't Aretha Franklin's lyric. It was Otis Redding's.

The way he talks I am surprised he knows there is a T at the end. I figured he would spell it R E S P I K.

This "fool" has made millions pretending to be something he isn't.. to idiots who are pretty much as stupid, uninformed and misinformed as he is.

An oldie but a goodie...

 

Calling Al Sharpton a "reverend" is like calling Jeffery Dahmer a "chef". It makes no sense.

"So in the words of my late friend Aretha Franklin, show some R-E-S-P-I-C-T, and the next time you get a black woman and a beagle confused, remember this: I got you," Sharpton said.

 

That seems like a slur against Hispanics as well as a searing example of his poor grasp of the English language.

 

And, Reverend, if you're going to start lecturing men about referring to women as dogs, perhaps you could start in your own community and get those charming little rapper boys to stop calling the women in their songs 'bitches', hmm?

 

And in case you don't know what a bitch is, Reverend, because you clearly have issues with spelling, it is the term for a female dog.

 

Class dismissed.
