Al Sharpton On His Instagram Selfies: “Don’t Be Jealous Because I’m So Fit At 62”

“I live in the Trump era. If he can tweet at night, I can selfie before I go to the gym in the morning.”

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.”
