Hillary Clinton Calls Rev. Al Sharpton to

Wish Him a Happy Birthday


New York, NY —  A half hour before going on his MSNBC show PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton, Rev. Sharpton received a call from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who wished him a happy early birthday (Sharpton will be sixty this Friday). Tonight there will be a big party for him at the Four Seasons Restaurant; attendees include: Governor Andrew Cuomo, Senator Chuck Schumer, Mayor Bill de Blasio, entertainer Aretha Franklin, filmmaker Spike Lee and others.


Mrs. Clinton apologized for not being able to attend but wanted to personally talk to him before the event. Rev. Sharpton told Mrs. Clinton, “I will make one birthday vow to you. I will stay on the front lines of civil rights and activism until your granddaughter Charlotte gets old enough to vote.” At which they both chuckled.
