Well, it finally happened.
Someone actually confronted Rev. Al Sharpton on his racist past – and bonus – it all happened on camera, so you can enjoy the fun!
All the thanks for this monumental moment goes to outspoken, pro-Trump conservative Rep. Matt Gaetz.

The heated debate happened during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday about alleged “police misconduct.”
As Gaetz took the floor, he quickly jumped into action, and pointed out that Sharpton’s colleagues at MSNBC have called him out for his bigotry.
Gatez began with, “your current MSNBC co-worker Joe Scarborough is my former congressman, and when Joe Scarborough served in the Congress, he had quite a bit to say about your contribution to the national discussion.”
Mr. Gaetz then went on to explain that Joe Scarborough filed a house concurrent resolution 270 entitled “Condemning the Racist and anti-Semitic Views of the Reverend Al Sharpton.”
It only got worse from there for the tax-cheating reverend.
“Mr. Scarborough’s resolution began by saying, ‘Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton
has referred to members of the Jewish faith as bloodsucking Jews and Jew b-stards,’” Gaetz continued. “So my question to you is, does Mr. Scarborough’s assertion that you said these things — is that true, or did you not say those things?”
“They are patently untrue, and I never said that and … Mr. Scarborough and I work very closely together. He comes to National Action Network conventions. I think he’s a great guy, and we do each other’s shows often,” Sharpton replied.
Though Sharpton failed to mention it, the reason the two suddenly get along now appears to because Scarborough has forgiven him for his bigotry.
Scarborough forgave Sharpton, and even mentioned it in a tweet.
Thanks to those reminding me of how stridently Al Sharpton and I opposed each other 20 years ago. We take pride in our friendship today because of that history, recognizing Jesus’s words that all have fallen short of God’s glory and we should forgive each others 70 x 7 times.

Gaetz went on, and pointed to what Scarborough wrote in the actual resolution.
“Joe Scarborough then wrote, ‘Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has referred to members of the Jewish faith as ‘white interlopers’ and ‘diamond merchants,’” Gaetz said. “Have you ever referred to members of the Jewish faith as ‘white interlopers’ or ‘diamond merchants?’”
“No sir,” Sharpton replied. “I referred to one in Harlem, an individual.”
The “fact check” on Sharpton’s denial, is false, but the debate between Gaetz and Sharpton continued.

“Thank you, Mr. Sharpton, I’m going to reclaim my time …,” the congressman said.
“I’m trying to, may I finish my answer, sir?” Sharpton responded angrily. “You asked a question, and I’m answering it.”
“I got a few more,” Gaetz said.
“And I have a few more answers,” Sharpton replied.
“I can’t wait,” Gaetz shot back.
“Well apparently you do, because you don’t want me to answer since you raised it let me finish …,” Sharpton said.
“You don’t get to filibuster by talking over my questions!” Gaetz complained.
“I’m not filibustering, I’m answering your question,” Sharpton said.
“Everyone will suspend,” committee chair Rep. Jerry Nadler then cut in.
