In one sentence, what do you actually do all day in your job?
What I do all day is I do three jobs: I run National Action Network early in the morning, I do my syndicated radio show from 1 to 4, then I do Politics Nation with Al Sharpton pre-production from 4:30, go live from 6 to 7, then we do afterstudy and analysis, and then maybe in the evening I might have a speaking engagement. But on a slow day, I do three jobs.
What’s your favorite medication?
Air, while I’m on the treadmill. I like doing inhale-exhale exercises while I’m doing my workout.
How much is too much to spend on a haircut?
Over $50. I go up in Harlem, to Betty’s on Eighth Avenue.
