SNL mocks Al Sharpton following the Eric Garner chokehold case

Al Sharpton feels like Beyonce in the wake of the non-indictment in the Eric Garner chokehold case, according to Saturday Night Live.

"All over the country there are protests," Sharpton, played by Kenan Thompson, said on SNL. "And for the first time in my life everyone agrees with me. Folks are high-fiving with me, inviting me places. This must be what it feels like to be Beyonce." --Jon Terbush
