Rev. Al Sharpton, civil rights activist and MSNBC host, turns 60 this Friday so he threw himself a birthday party at the Four Seasons last night. And the guest list includes some notable names: Spike Lee, Sen Chuck Schumer, Mayor Bill de Blasio Aretha Franklin and BET CEO Debra Lee among them.
One of the names not on the list was Hillary Clinton. But don’t worry folks. The Rev’s birthday wasn’t ruined by her absence. Indeed, she did call to send her regards. And we got the scoop from Rev. Al himself, who issued a press release with the news.
“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),” it reads.
