On this weekend’s “PoliticsNation,” MSNBC host Al Sharpton hilariously blew the spelling of “respect” while referencing legendary singer Aretha Franklin’s famous lyric.
Sharpton, who looks in desperate need of a cheeseburger, was railing on President Donald Trump over his use of the word “dog” to refer to Omarosa Manigault Newman, who betrayed his administration’s trust by secretly recording conversations while at the White House.
Al Sharpton goofs spelling of Aretha Franklin's RESPECT.

“I think you might’ve learned the lesson this week, sometimes the dog bites back with a book deal,” Sharpton said, speaking about Omarosa’s new book that has been embraced by the left because she attacks Trump.
The race hustler referenced Franklin, the queen of soul, who passed away last week in suggesting the president’s name calling was racial.
“So in the words of my late friend Aretha Franklin, show some R-E-S-P-I-C-T,” Sharpton said. “And the next time you get a black woman and a beagle confused, remember this: I got you.”
Perhaps, the most hilarious part of the spelling blunder is trying to decide if the word was misspelled on the teleprompter by an MSNBC staffer, or if Sharpton, who has had problems in the past, failed to properly read what was before him.
Either way, someone please buy the charlatan a cheeseburger and a large fry before he withers away to nothing.
On a positive note, Sharpton provided plenty of entertainment value for social media users. Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
It’s amazing that he has any modicum of influence or relevance…now or ever. Watching outtakes of his show makes me doubt he can even tie his own shoes.

Way to mess that up, “Reverend”. You just dishonored the memory of someone you called “your friend”.

That was a great impersonation of Kenan Thompson as Al Sharpton by Al Sharpton.

Shows Al Sharpton’s total lack of intelligence BUT the guy understands strong arm tactics to hold corporations hostage

While there may not be an ‘I’ in respect, never let that get in the way of Al inserting himself
