Watch: Megyn Kelly Takes on Al Sharpton Over False and Damaging Ferguson Narrative

It's been a busy week for Rev. Al Sharpton, who hosted Democrat presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders at his annual National Action Conference as the two battle just days ahead of the New York primary. He also had a run-in with Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly over his false Ferguson, Missouri narrative surrounding the confrontation between Michael Brown and Police Officer Darren Wilson. 

Nearly two years ago, Sharpton repeatedly claimed Wilson shot an unarmed, compliant and innocent Brown, when in fact Brown attempted to take Wilson's gun during an altercation in Wilson's police cruiser. After months of investigation, the Department of Justice and the Ferguson Police Department exonerated Wilson, stating he was in reasonable fear of his life when Brown was shot and killed. 

When confronted by Kelly about his role in promoting a damaging and false narrative, Sharpton told the anchor to "calm down" and denied being part of the problem. He also denied the life of Wilson, who resigned from his position as a police officer, has been ruined as a result. 

On a different note, Al Sharpton still owes millions of dollars in back taxes to the IRS.
