[Ed. – The allegation that the administration is delaying the printing of the bill has already been debunked.]
On Saturday’s PoliticsNation show, MSNBC host Al Sharpton presided over a discussion of the Donald Trump administration delaying the release of the new $20 bill replacing President Andrew Jackson’s image with iconic anti-slavery activist Harriet Tubman.
Obviously, the MSNBC group painted the delay as racially motivated, and Sharpton made clear that he does not know the difference between Andrew Jackson and Andrew Johnson as he TWICE claimed Jackson succeeded President Abraham LIncoln.
At 5:39 p.m. Eastern, after anti-Trump Republican panel member Sophia Nelson railed against Republicans for not getting the new $20 issued more quickly and taking credit for it, the historically challenged Sharpton turned to liberal comedian Dean Obeidallah and posed:
SHARPTON: The blatant thing here is you’re talking about a black woman abolitionist that is going to replace a slave owner who was one that fought against many of the things that his immediate predecessor, Abe Lincoln, stood for. And you’re going to delay it, and then after only some very skillful questioning by a member of Congress.
