Today on Morning Joe, Rev. Al Sharpton offered insight into the ongoing protests in Egypt. Is Sharpton making his case to be Obama’s next National Security Advisor?
AL SHARPTON: I think you’ve got a classic case of where you had an anti-Mubarak, anti-repressive movement that has been misinterpreted by Morsi and others as pro-them. You know sometimes reformers forget that the grievances of people are not for them as much as it is against the grievances. And what Morsi in a year and people feeling conditions haven’t changed, he now becomes the object of what he benefited from. I think the challenge now is how you have a democratic transition if we’re going to transition, or how he deals with the issues that brought him to power in the first place.
