• Al Sharpton Gets Physical With Fox News Reporter

    A Fox News Reporter got into a physical confrontation with Al Sharpton as he tried to stop the reporter from asking Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake questions.

    Rawlings-Blake and Sharpton ignored him.

    “We can’t ask questions?” Vittert asked. “You are a public official and we can’t ask questions?”

    “Then you’ll answer our questions?” he pressed.

    “At the press conference, we will answer all questions,” Sharpton said putting his hands up as Vittert tailed them. A member of the mayor’s security detail stepped between Vittert and the mayor and began pushing him away.

    Sharpton threw up his arm as well and gave a light shove. “Relax! Relax!” he said when Vittert recoiled and yelled, “Whoa!”

    Sharpton lied, the mayor snuck out the back and never took questions.
