    Rev. Sharpton: Dems, GOP put differences aside to honor Cummings


    The late Rep. Elijah Cummings was honored on Thursday at the U.S. Capitol with lawmakers from both sides of the aisle in attendance. Reverend Al Sharpton notes that it was a historic ceremony as Cummings was the first African American elected official to lie in state. “It showed the best in the country when people can disagree, but come together to honor a statesman who really served this country," Sharpton says.
