ERIC HOLDER, INTERN BULLY: Sources: Eric Holder scolded Capitol Hill intern for taking notes during lecture.
Sources have confirmed to The Daily Caller that Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday berated an intern from House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy’s office for taking notes during a lecture he gave on Capitol Hill.
According to one intern who was present, Holder had just started speaking when he noticed a male intern who was standing on the side of the packed room beginning to take notes with a pen and paper.
“Holder is talking and then he sees some kid taking notes,” the intern, who asked to remain anonymous to protect his boss, said in a phone interview. “He [Holder] asks, ‘Oh, why are you taking notes? Are you from the Washington Post?’”
“He [the intern Holder scolded] is like, ‘no,’” the intern who spoke with TheDC recalls.
“Then, he [Holder] is like, ‘what office do you work in?’” he continued. “And, the kid is like, ‘oh Kevin McCarthy.’”
He said, next, Holder responded, “’Oh, you’re one of those guys,’ kind of like jokingly but meaning he was a Republican.”
Holder’s remarks apparently had an effect on the room, the intern who spoke with TheDC said. ““Yeah, I was scared to take notes then,” he told TheDC. “No one else whipped out pens and paper to take notes.”
Next time, record it on your smartphone.
Also, they checked all the interns’ IDs to make sure they were who they said they were. Isn’t that racist?
