Al Sharpton: Occupy Wall Street has ‘changed the conversation’

Al Sharpton appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last night and said the Occupy Wall Street has “changed the conversation.”

“I’m Jon Stewart without the cursing,” Sharpton said discussing his new show ‘Politics Nation’ on MSNBC. “I’m profound, not profane.”

Here’s what he had to say about Occupy Wall Street: “I support it. I went down. I had my radio show there. I’ve had people on that are far and against it...I don’t pretend not to have an opinion.”

Sharpton said any movement has to focus on theatrics and: “They have already achieved something great. They have changed the conversation. Three months ago, the whole country was on the Republican discussion of deficit reduction. We’re now talking about jobs. We’re now talking about poverty.”

The rest of the interview is embedded below:
