Some of the “thought leaders” championed by democrats often bring into question their very judgement.
One man who has never done them any favors is Al Sharpton.
In spite of the fact that he’s proven his ignorance time and time again, democrats still prop him up as some sort of expert on everything.
As it turns out, Sharpton doesn’t even know the basics of American history.
While speaking on MSNBC, Sharpton proved that fact.
While speaking of President Donald Trump’s recent indictments, Sharpton again pushed the false narrative that Trump attempted to overthrow the government.
He made his point in the most bizarre way, one which proved once and for all that he should never be taken seriously again:
“One day our children’s children will read American history. And can you imagine reading that James Madison or Thomas Jefferson tried to overthrow the government so they could stay in power?”
Apparently Sharpton didn’t even take grade school history class:

This may be the dumbest thing Sharpton has ever said…

The Gateway Pundit reported on Sharpton’s ignorance on American history:
Al Sharpton, one of MSNBC’s finest, weighed in on Trump’s arraignment and dropped this gem:
“One day our children’s children will read American history. And can you imagine reading that James Madison or Thomas Jefferson tried to overthrow the government so they could stay in power?” Al Sharpton said.
Nobody is letting Sharpton get out of this one unscathed:

Yes, Al. Yes I can.

Thomas Jefferson and James Madison are famous specifically for overthrowing the English government 🤦🏼♂️
Not surprising at all that Al Sharpton is historically illiterate 🤭 https://t.co/jSnI9SYP4P

Vivek Ramaswamy gave Sharpton a history lesson.
Daily Caller has more on that:
“Can you imagine our reading that James Madison or Thomas Jefferson tried to overthrow the government so they could stay in power?” Sharpton asked on “Morning Joe.” “That’s what we’re looking at. We’re looking at American history, and how it will play out is going to be very important.”
“It was called the American Revolution,” Ramaswamy posted on Twitter in response to Sharpton’s comments. “We were successful. We won.”
Jefferson authored the Declaration of Independence in 1776, which set forth the reasons why thirteen colonies were severing ties with the United Kingdom. Madison served as a delegate to the Virginia Constitutional Convention and later served in the Continental Congress, according to History.com.
