Earlier today, race-baiter-for-hire, and Barack Obama bestie, Al Sharpton, took to Twitter to mourn the loss of journalist Cokie Roberts, who died at the age of 76 after a battle with breast cancer.
“Saddened to hear of the passing of legendary journalist Cookie [Cokie] Roberts. Here is a [an] Easter Sunday special we did in 2011. May she Rest In Peace.”
Not only did the racist thug misspell the deceased journalist’s name, but he also posted photos of his Easter special. There’s only one big problem with the pictures he used—they’re not Cokie Roberts, but instead, CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour.
Sharpton could’ve been forgiven if one of the photos he posted was of Amanpour, but unfortunately, all three photos he posted were of the wrong journalist, the one he actually did the Easter special with, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.
After Sharpton was called out on his ridiculous blunder, he deleted the tweet. But alas, the internet is forever. Here’s the Sharpton memorial for “Cookie” Roberts:
