Oklahoma Republican Gut Checks Sharpton After The Rev Calls for a 'Season of Civil Disobedience'

Al Sharpton, unsurprisingly,  has a bone to pick with President-elect Trump's nomination of Jeff Sessions for attorney general.

Sharpton called Sessions's nomination a “nightmare we cannot wake up from.” Now, one Oklahoma Republican is taking serious issue with the Reverend's comments.

Former Speaker of the Oklahoma House of Representatives T.W. Shannon spoke out against Sharpton on “Fox & Friends Weekend.” He told host Clayton Morris that Sharpton is attempting to start a “race war.”

Ultimately though, Shannon suggests conservatives should take Rev. Al's comments as a good sign: “When the liberals are losing they always play the race card.”
