While reading President Donald Trump on his MSNBC show “Politics Nation,” Rev. Al Sharpton managed to mess the spelling of Aretha Franklin’s anthem “Respect.”
Rev. Sharpton was discussing how the president called former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman and others a “dog.”
“I think you might’ve learned the lesson this week, sometimes the dog bites back with a book deal,” Sharpton said of Omarosa, citing the bombshells against Trump featured in her new tell-all, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.”
The civil rights leader then chose to quote “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” from his friend, the Queen of Soul, who passed away last Thursday, Aug. 16 at age 76.
However, Rev. Sharpton accidentally misspelled respect.
“In the words of my late friend Aretha Franklin, show some R-E-S-P-I-C-T, and the next time you get a black woman and a beagle confused, remember this: I got you,” he said.
