Sharpton accuses Trump supporters of living in “an alternative reality” asks “How do you debate a fantasy?”

During a recent appearance on MSNBC, host Nicole Wallace asked guest Al Sharpton “Do you share president Obama’s concern about the alternate universe of fact-free information that’s being pumped into trump’s base?’”

Sharpton responded “We’re now in a nation where facts don’t matter. You make up facts. And not only do you have an alternative reality, how do you debate someone that is dealing with a totally fictitious premise? How do you debate a fantasy that someone wants to sell, and people want to believe? I think the danger of that is in the middle of having to engage and try to knock down fantasies.”

He added “We put ourselves at risk to a foreign enemy or some enemy like a pandemic that is a natural disaster because reality is not going to spare fantasy.”
