On Monday’s explosive episode of Morning Joe, the historically illiterate Reverend Al Sharpton alongside grumpy host Joe Scarborough set out to make one of the most bizarre and laughable arguments against Donald Trump to date: that Trump’s entire movement was to make him king of the Unites States, and that he and his followers were “on the side of King George or the Confederates.”

Proving his weak grasp on American history, Sharpton suggested the Confederates and British also said their causes were about fighting for free speech.
