JoScar Pre-Slaps Sharpton Over Nolte Nap

We won't say that Joe Scarborough didn't warn us in case Rev. Al Sharpton gets all up in our biz-ness again about those unreal snaps of Nick Nolte that TMZ posted yesterday.

This time, as Scarborough predicted this morning on his "Morning Joe" show on MSNBC, it'll be because we're "makin' fun of the white man, and I know Al Sharpton's not going to allow that to stand."

Nolte -- as Joe so astutely pointed out -- was snapped by a TMZ spy sprawled out in a Hasselhoffian recline, barely able to talk or keep his eyes open during an airport delay in Kauai.
