HOLDER LASHES OUT AT “OUTRAGEOUS” TREATMENT
NEW YORK (AP) – Speaking at a meeting of the Reverend Al Sharpton’s “National Action Network” civil rights organization, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder today lashed out at what he perceived to be his “outrageous” treatment at the hands of McDonald’s front counter worker Brad Whitefield.
“Forget about me,” said Holder in his off the cuff remarks to the organization, “but has any Attorney General, or any American President ever been treated in such demeaning fashion?”
Holder was referring to the fact that Whitefield neglected to ask the Attorney General is he wanted to “Supersize his Number One Big Mac.”
“Every other person in line was asked if he or she wanted to supersize their meals except me. I was greatly offended that that young man treated the sitting Attorney General in such a caviler fashion,” said Holder to thunderous applause from the group’s members.
Whitelaw, in answer to reporter’s questions, stated that Holder “looked like he knew what he wanted.”
“I was just trying to keep the line moving and Mr. Holder spoke with authority so I assumed that he ordered exactly what he wanted,” said Whitelaw.
The Justice Department has launched a civil rights violation investigation into the incident.
