Sharpton sent this tweet:

I’m in South Africa headed to the Global Citizen Festival with Congressional Black Caucus members Greg Meeks, Barbara Lee, Bobby Rush & Hank Johnson & my @MSNBC colleague Joy Reid. #GlobalCitizenFestivalSA

More from Fox News:

Five members of the Congressional Black Caucus took a $60,000 trip to see Beyoncé and other stars perform in concert in South Africa late last year, according to congressional disclosure records.

The lawmakers were U.S. Reps. Gregory Meeks of New York, Barbara Lee of California, Bobby Rush of Illinois, Terri Sewell of Alabama and Hank Johnson of Georgia, according to the data.

They attended the “Global Citizen Mandela 100” concert from Dec. 1-3 to celebrate the centenary birth of the late Nelson Mandela and raise awareness of global poverty. In addition to Beyoncé, other musical acts included her husband Jay Z, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams and Chris Martin.

Sharpton has made a lot of money over the decades. He decided to pocket another $531,000 by selling the rights to his life story.

Nothing wrong with that, right?

Here’s the thing.

He sold the rights to his own charity.

Sharpton, president of National Action Network (NAN), made over $240,000 in compensation from the group in 2017 alone.

Linda Sugin, a Fordham University Law School professor and associate dean, warns of “funny business” afoot.

Sugin: “When I see this kind of thing, it just makes me roll my eyes because there’s so much potential for funny business.

Al, Al, Al.

It made sense that the Dems went to see Beyonce. She’s not exactly someone who preaches “America first.”

Save conservative media!

Biden Set to Provide Pathway to Citizenship for Upwards of 20 Million Undocumented Aliens

How do you say, ‘this is a terrible idea,’ in Spanish?

The goal of the Biden administration is simple. It’s not too dissimilar from the goal of the Obama administration’s, either. In a nutshell: destroy America. That’s the plan. From Los Angeles Times: During his first days in office, President-elect Joe Biden plans to send legislation to congress that would provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million immigrants who are in the country without legal status. Biden’s legislation does not include money to support detention and deportation. Previous immigration bills passed under both Democratic and Republican administrations linked an expansion of immigration with stepped-up enforcement and security measures. CONTINUED: The bill would provide a shorter pathway to citizenship for people with Temporary Protected Status, for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) recipients and likely also for certain frontline essential workers, vast numbers of whom are immigrants. Biden’s proposal would be the most sweeping and comprehensive immigration package since President Reagan’s in 1986 Immigrants would become eligible for legal permanent residence after 5 years and wait 3 more years for U.S. citizenship. After Joe is sworn-in as president, how long will it be before he gives way to Kamala? What say you? A year and half? Two and half years at best?

They’re baaaaaacccckkkkk. Except this time, the United States doesn’t have a strong, pro-American leader in the White House to stop them. Instead, we’re all stuck with beta male Joe and alpha woman Kamala. Lucky us. From New York Post: Guatemalan authorities have detained hundreds of Honduran migrants from the caravan including families with young children, though thousands of others were able to breach border security and continue their march northward, Reuters reported. “We are going to leave the country, to ask for help wherever they receive us,” one migrant told The Associated Press. Some 6,500 souls are on the move, fleeing poverty and political corruption in the hope of ultimately finding a better life in the United States.
