MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” host Rev. Al Sharpton called on President Donald Trump to be respectful in his rhetoric toward women but inadvertently misquoted legendary singer Aretha Franklin’s most famous lyric.[…]
Sharpton concluded his comments with a reference to Franklin’s 1967 hit “Respect,” in which the singer spelled the word out. Sharpton and Franklin, who died last week at the age of 76, were close friends.
“So in the words of my late friend Aretha Franklin, show some R-E-S-P-I-C-T, and the next time you get a black woman and a beagle confused, remember this: I got you,” Sharpton said.
In the song, Franklin did not spell it that way.
