Henry Kissinger, Meet Rev. Al

Sharpton for Secretary of State


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.
