Fox News’ Jesse Watters confronted the so-called Rev. Al Sharpton over inflammatory remarks he once made about “offing pigs,” reminding the frequent Obama White House visitor that “facts are facts.”

“Would you like to apologize for that?” Watters asked Sharpton recently at his National Action Network convention.

“You don’t have footage saying that,” Sharpton replied. “You had me where I said that a guy was talking about ‘offing pigs’ and I said, ‘you ain’t gonna do nothing,’ and I mocked him.”

“You said, ‘if you’re gonna talk about it, do it,’” Watters reminded him.

Sharpton responded by doing what he does best, getting lost in the minutiae to distract from the reality of his actions before telling Watters he is trying to “defraud his listeners.”

“Facts are facts,” Watters countered, while offering up the transcript.

For the record, while ranting about police misconduct at New Jersey’s Kean College in 1992, the race hustler all but challenged the audience to put their words to action in talking about “offing the pigs.”

“’I believe in offing the pigs,’” Sharpton said, mimicking the words of others. “Well, they got pigs out here. You ain’t offed one of them.”

“What I believe in, I do. Do what you believe in,” he added. “Or shut up and admit you’ve lost your courage and your guts to stand up.”
