MSNBC host Reverend Al Sharpton made an appearance on Saturday Night Live this week alongside Kenan Thompson as Al Sharpton to discuss the black approval ratings for current candidates.

The real Sharpton (who was playing a character named Charles) shared his official black vote approval ratings. You’ll never guess what he rates Trump . . .
