Sharpton said, “When we look at the president and vice president, they stood there today with the survivor of the Till family, talking at that very moment in Florida, you have a state Board of Education that is saying that we are going to change how black history is taught. You have a governor who has said that we don’t need to say anything that makes others uncomfortable when it comes to blacks or, for that matter, LGBTQ and others.”
He continued, “So you have the contrast of America. You have a president saying, no, we shouldn’t forget. We have a governor who is running for president saying we should erase.”
Every word about DeSantis is a lie. The FL governor has said no such thing. But Sharpton didn’t get wealthy and powerful by telling the truth.
