(Weasel Zippers) Just when you think Al Shartpton can’t be any more loathsome.
Via NY Post:
Slain NYPD Officer Randolph Holder’s fiancée was stunned to hear that the Rev. Al Sharpton was asked to speak at his funeral — because the policeman detested the anti-cop preacher, she told The Post on Monday.
“He didn’t like [Sharpton]. He wasn’t a fan. So I don’t know why [Sharpton] is speaking,’’ Mary Muhammad said.
Sharpton claims that he met with Holder’s father and that the dad asked him to speak at Wednesday’s service.
On Saturday, Sharpton made a condolence call at the elder Holder’s home in Far Rockaway and tweeted a photo of himself with Holder and other family members.
“[Sharpton] was asked by Officer Holder’s father, and he’s expected to speak,” Sharpton rep John Weinstein said Monday.
But law-enforcement sources said Holder’s dad, Randolph Sr., called the NYPD on Monday morning — after news of Sharpton’s supposed invite broke — to tell them he invited the preacher only to attend the funeral, not to address mourners.
The sources added that Sharpton would not be speaking at the service.
