MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Wednesday night that Ronald Reagan was the "big loser" in NBC's Republican presidential debate at the Reagan Presidential Library in California.

"They were in his place," he said. "Reagan, who raised taxes over and over again, and tripled the deficit. He couldn't have won this nomination. So, I think Ronald Reagan looked like the Democrat in the room."

Lawrence O'Donnell added that Ronald Reagan would have been the "wild lefty in the room."
