Al Sharpton, Betrayed by Protege, Faces Embarrassingly Low Turnout for Inaugural March

As we all know, a few days ago Al Sharpton announced that he would be marching on Washington on Martin Luther King Day to protest Donald Trump. However, something unexpected has happened for him that could ruin his little march.

Sharpton’s “We shall not be moved” has interested less than 1000 people on Facebook, thanks to a “rival” event- the Women’s March on Washington. Now this march has a lot more people, reportedly 175,000 RSVPs, with an additional 250,000 people saying they are interested in participating as well.

harpton likely feels betrayed by the Women’s March, since two of it’s key organizers are proteges of his who were both former executive directors of National Action Network, the civil-rights nonprofit Sharpton founded in 1991. The Women’s March is led almost exclusively by black women and promises to be very diverse, meaning it will cut into the audience Sharpton was targeting for his own march.

A source close to Sharpton said he is hoping 5,000 people will attend his march, but even this is a small number that he would be lucky to get to at this point.

“Sharpton’s very worried, because obviously, it would be a big embarrassment if no one shows up,” the source said. “Publicly, they say, ‘We’re all getting along.’ Behind the scenes, they’re fighting like cats and dogs, and Sharpton was trying to get them not to hold the rally until March.”

Well such a “shame” for Sharpton’s unsuccessful march, but it is still funny how Democrats ruin their own things by themselves!
