The Rev. Al Sharpton and guests on his TV show were dumbstruck that Rush Limbaugh won an award for a children’s book and mocked him accordingly.
Sharpton couldn’t contain himself Thursday on his MSNBC show, “Politics Nation,” ridiculing Limbaugh by pointing out that he not only wrotea children’s book, but he was awarded “Author of the Year” by the Children’s Book Council.
“Here’s the real scary part: The winners are supposedly picked by kids who vote online,” Sharpton said. “He won for this book titled, ‘Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims.’”
When Sharpton asked whether it’s possible that Limbaugh could actually have won the award legitimately, panelist Zerlina Maxwell called the results odd, adding, “absolutely, 100 percent, the kids did not vote for Rush Limbaugh to win best book over ‘Divergent.’”
Sharpton said the kids who voted should have shown photo ID, and panelist Abby Huntsman suggested Limbaugh boosted sales by buying “half of them [the books] himself.”
