Al Sharpton to defend Irish against Trump ‘slur,’ offended by word ‘paddy wagon’

Does this mean that “hoosegow” is out too?

Just when you think you’ve seen everything, race hustler Al Sharpton steps up to defend the Irish.

…over the term “paddy wagon!”

Proving the left doesn’t need much of a reason to attack President Donald Trump, the hypersensitive shake down artist took exception with the president’s sardonic humor Friday while addressing police officers in Brentwood, N.Y.

“When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just seen them thrown in, rough. I said, ‘Please don’t be too nice,’” Trump said.

“When you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head you know, the way you put their hand over…,” he added, placing his hand above his head. “Like, ‘Don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody, don’t hit their head.’ I said, ‘You can take the hand away, OK?’”

Buzzfeed’s David Mack described the remark as “encouraging police officers to be rough with people they arrest” in sharing the video clip.

Sharpton, further irked by the cops laughing — see sense of humor — over Trump’s facetious remark, promised in a post on social media, “I will respond.”

Either way, social media users seem to have already chosen their side in the matter.
