“The Rev.” Al Sharpton, the racial antagonist who poses as both a journalist and a reverend, failed miserably at trying to pull a fast one over on his followers Wednesday.
Demoted from his five-day a week “Politics Nation” gig on MSNBC, Sharpton announced that he’ll soon only be gracing the airwaves once a week — on Sunday mornings.
Sharpton used his proficiency in progressive spin when he made his announcement. But sadly for him, it didn’t work.
Good Politics Nation show tonight. I celebrate my 4 th anniversary tomorrow. I will announce I will move my show to Sunday mornings at 8 am.

That new Politics Nation w/ Al Sharpton will premiere on my birthday weekend. I am honored with now being a Sunday Morning TV host, Great!! — Reverend Al Sharpton (@TheRevAl) August 26, 2015
When you’re demoted in front of the nation what else would you do, but try and word it in your favor.
But seriously, “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough really did think it was great. On a segment Thursday discussing poll numbers that show the word “liar” is the one potential voters most associate with Hillary Clinton, Scarborough noted that the worst thing people say about him is that he works for MSNBC.
Maybe moves like Sharpton’s demotion — along with the cancellation of loudmouth Ed Schultz — will help.
Scarborough seemed to think so anyway. Check out the end of the video, where he thanks NBC News chief Andy Lack.
Social media users were glad to see Sharpton go, too.
Your swill is no longer supported. You’ve been sent to the Ed Shultz graveyard. @TheRevAl @MSNBC — Sue Smith (@SueSmith511) August 27, 2015
@TheRevAl congrats! You go from a show no one watched 5 nights a week to show no one will watch once a week.

And tweeters don’t forget a thing:
@TheRevAl Hay when are you going to pay you’r Taxes ? I have to pay mine !what about you ? — c (@Riefle23C) August 27, 2015
@TheRevAl goodbye. Good riddance. The only reason you’re not fired outright is your (overdrawn) race card.

Here’s a good question:
@TheRevAl @TheBlazeNOW will your demographic be awake on Sunday’s at 8am?
— Paul Gagnon (@PaulGRealty) August 27, 2015
And here’s the answer:
@TheRevAl oh wow! I’ll be sleep. I guess this will be the end of your show. — Celisa (@itsmadsn0) August 27, 2015
@TheRevAl @TheBlazeNOW good riddance Rev.
