Did comedy bring old enemies together as friends?

Not exactly.

The famously liberal Rev. Al Sharpton snagged photos with some big-name Republicans on the red carpet at the "Saturday Night Live" 40th anniversary special Sunday evening.

Sarah Palin...

...and Donald Trump were caught in pictures Sharpton tweeted out.

Sharpton later tweeted that he urged Palin to run for president "to help the Democrats out" and that he'd spoken with Trump and Bill O'Reilly to "treat my attackers with candor and a smile."

He added, "They want u bitter."

On Twitter, Sharpton's tweets got a few hundred favorites and retweets — and a whole lot of negative reactions from both sides of the political aisle.
