Happy Father's Day!! Headed to workout at dawn, then I'm live on Politics Nation w/Al Sharpton at 8 am/et on MSNBC, then on my national radio show from 9-10 am, and then I preach the 9 30 and 11 30 am services at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Newark, NJ. Thank God for energy and purpose as I celebrate another Father's Day.
In 2017, anyone can become a meme — including civil rights activist, Baptist minister, and political talk show host Al Sharpton. Sharpton has been on a health kick recently and has been letting his Instagram followers track his fitness schedule with a high volume of selfies.
The pictures have become something of a sensation on the internet and the jokes have been rolling in. A video of Sharpton attempting a one-handed push-up went particularly viral, and Nelly even called for an Instagram boycott "until we find out who in the hell is leaking these AL Sharpton pictures."
In a recent interview with TMZ, Sharpton had some choice words for his haters. "I live in the Trump era,” Sharpton said. “If he can tweet at night, I can selfie before I go to the gym in the morning and don’t be jealous because I’m so fit at 62 years old.”
Sharpton continued, "I work out. I was showing people you work out, you take your health seriously. I think it’s a good thing. I’m gonna keep doing it.”
