LOVELOCK, NEVADA – This morning Al Sharpton interviewed O. J. Simpson at the Lovelock prison in Nevada where Simpson is serving up to 33 years for robbing a man in a Las Vegas hotel. Following is the transcript of the interview that will air Sunday morning on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation.
AL SHARPTON: Thank you for turning on my show where I host on MSNBC. Today I come to you from the Lovelock prison in Nevada where I will interview a convict. He was a formal NFL running back who murdered his wife and her friend and now he’s incapacitated in this penaltentiary. I welcome to my own show on MSNBC, convict O. J. Simpson.
OJ SIMPSON: I did not murder my wife, Al.
AL SHARPTON: You may call me Reverend
OJ: You can call me Juice.
AL SHARPTON: Mr. Juice, let me begin by asking how you are holding up in prison.
OJ: Holding up? Is that some kind of joke?
AL SHARPTON: Why would that be a joke?
OJ: I’m in prison because they say I held up some guy in a hotel.
AL SHARPTON: I thought you were in prison for murder.
OJ: No, the jury said I was innocent of those murders.
AL SHARPTON: Well, I think they said there was not enough evidencery contusions to convictimize you.
OJ: The jurors voted unanimously, not guilty.
AL SHARPTON: Is that your real name?
AL SHARPTON: Unanimously.
OJ: What are you talking about?
AL SHARPTON: Mr. Juice, I have you on my show today because you told us you want to help Hillary Clinton with her presidential erection.
OJ: That is true. I have decided to throw my weight behind Hillary.
AL SHARPTON: (snickering) I think Hillary already has enough weight in her behind to throw around.
(Al Sharpton and O.J. Simpson laugh and share an enthusiastic high five)
OJ: But in all seriousness, I am endorsing Hillary Clinton because I truly believe she is most qualified to lead our country.
AL SHARPTON: Does your decision to enforce Hillary have anything to do with her remarks about reducing prison populations?
OJ: Oh gosh no.
AL SHARPTON: She has made a point of saying too many African Americans of color are in prison and that things must change.
OJ: I’ve been saying that since I was incarcerated.
AL SHARPTON: Have you ever had any problems in prison?
AL SHARPTON: Ever see anything weird going on in the showers?
AL SHARPTON: Nobody ever give you cigarettes or candy, maybe offer to braid your hair?
OJ: Yeah, I guess I’ve put on a couple of pounds.
AL SHARPTON: A couple of pounds? You’re a benemoth! Why don’t you lift weights in the yard with the other convicts?
OJ: I prefer to stay in my cell and eat. I watch a lot of TV.
AL SHARPTON: I used to be a big fat farm animal like you, but now I’m skinny and I have a young girlfriend. Do you have a girlfriend here in the big house?
OJ: No. No girls in here.
AL SHARPTON: I saw a couple of girly men when we walked in. I would guess that after years in a prison even Hillary Clinton would start to look good to you.
(Al Sharpton and O.J. laugh and share a high-five)
AL SHARPTON: Mr. Juice, tell my audience what made you want to help Hillary Clinton with her erection.
OJ: Well, I admire the way she’s stood by Bill Clinton all these years. I really respect that. A couple of girlfriends wasn’t the end of the world.
AL SHARPTON: Are you talking about Bill’s girlfriends or hers?
(Simpson and Sharpton laugh and share a high-five)
AL SHARPTON: How do you feel about the actions of Hillary Clinton when she was Obama’s secretary and those four people died in By-golly?
OJ: By immediately blaming a YouTube video for the murders in Benghazi, she took the heat off herself. It was brilliant.
AL SHARPTON: Mr. Juice, what made you want to become a political aviator?
OJ: When I heard that Virginia was allowing 200,000 convicted felons to vote I decided it was my duty to serve my country.
AL SHARPTON: How do you plan to do that?
AL SHARPTON: Is it true that Hillary Clinton has contacted you?
OJ: I can’t say too much at this point, but I can tell you that this time next year I hope to be playing golf in Florida.
AL SHARPTON: What else do you plan to do as a free man?
OJ: Oh, I don’t know. I’d like to meet a nice girl and chill out on the beach. I really just want to relax and enjoy my life.
OJ: (slaps his forehead) I knew I was forgetting something! Yeah, finding the real killer will definitely be my number one priority. Priority number one. No doubt.
AL SHARPTON: Uh, huh. And when that happens I’ll confess that I lied about Tawana Brawley. Hell, I’ll even pay back the millions I owe in taxes!
(Al Sharpton and O.J. Simpson howl with laughter and share an enthusiastic high-five)
AL SHARPTON: Thank-you, Mr. Juice, for being on my show where I host. And give my best to Hillary.
OJ: Will do.
