Brace Yourselves: Al Sharpton Says He Might Run For President Again

Well, the left wing circus is coming. In two years, the Democratic Party is going to have everyone and their mothers vying for the presidential nomination and the chance to take on Donald Trump, who has so far this year created three million jobs, increased wages, and clinched four percent economic growth for the second quarter—all of this thanks to the GOP’s tax reform package.

Cory Booker (D., N.J.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D.), and former Attorney General Eric Holder.

Well, if he does toss his hat in the ring, you can expect more supercuts like this:
