If you’re wondering where Al Sharpton has been the past few days, we’re told his social calendar is pretty full lately.
Full with visits to the Obama White House, that is.
Newsmax cited a recent National Review report that put the number of Sharpton visits to the White House since President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration at 61.
That’s close to one per month, for those of you educated under the Common Core educational standards.
National Review studied the White House visitor log to arrive at that number, citing it as evidence of “the extraordinary access Sharpton has had to the president and his top advisers.”
While many visits were official in nature, such as bill signings, others indicated a “a close personal relationship between Sharpton and the first family,” according to the report.
But it gets worse.
And it might get even worse than that.
The fact is that there are no records of what was discussed in 17 White House meetings that involved Reverend Al.
We’re pretty sure that he wasn’t there to discuss his millions of dollars in unpaid taxes — although he probably should have been.
Newsmax also cited a Politico report that described Sharpton as having been considered “a ‘pariah’ and race agitator by White House occupants” prior to Obama.
Those were the days.
Now, Politico called Sharpton the “go-to man on race” for the Obama administration.
That’s because Obama apparently “realized I wasn’t as irrational or as crazy as people thought,” Sharpton told Politico, according to Newsmax.
They also quoted a White House official as saying of Sharpton, “There’s really no one else out there who does what he does.”
