Two syllables. Seven letters. It’s a good portion of the actual chorus to a world-renowned song.
And he still couldn’t pull it off.
During a segment on his MSNBC show, Al Sharpton tried mocking President Trump over his current feud with former White House aide, Omarosa Manigault-Newman.
Raising his ire, in particular, was the fact that Trump referred to Omarosa as a “dog.”
“When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out,” Trump railed after Newman failed to convince anybody of the stories she told in her book, “Unhinged.”
“Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!” Trump wrote, naturally giving an opening to media members to assume the term had racist connotations despite the fact that the President has called numerous people a ‘dog’ in the past.
Sharpton tied in recent news that the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, had passed away and urged the President to show Omarosa some ‘respect.’
But it’s when he tried to spell the word, much like in Franklin’s hit song of the same name, that Sharpton fell flat on his face.

How does this man have a job in media when he is so profoundly dumb?
“Did you not notice the spelling in the song?” conservative actor James Woods asked. “Seriously, how is it possible to be this stupid and be on a national news show?”
Woods then posted this incredible meme, further mocking MSNBC’s resident Mensa candidate.

This incredible flub is reminiscent of another famous video of Sharpton struggling mightily with the English language, producing the iconic phrase “Resist we much.”
Bear in mind, this is an actual quote:
“But resist we much. We must, and we will much- about that- be committed.”

There have been many other instances of Sharpton getting KO’d by tough words, including mentions of “counter-tourism,” the “Thigh (Thai) military,” and “UseTube celebrities.”
Talk about your low-IQ individual.
When he’s not acting like a PSA for the dangers of illiteracy, Sharpton is a flat-out dangerous individual who has no place in media, period.
He has a history of inciting violence and ruining lives.
In 1995, he started a rally at Freddie’s Fashion Mart that led one protester to attack the store, shoot several customers, and start a fire that killed seven employees.
The most egregious act of race-based crime on his ledger – backing Tawana Brawley in falsely accusing four white men, including a state trooper and district attorney, of rape.
Sharpton has also had over $4.5 million in tax liens filed against him and his businesses.
Perhaps authorities could show some “respict” for the rule of law and put Sharpton in jail.
