Man Threatens to Eat the President and First Lady

Via WSFA:  "Oh, no. I’m gonna eat ’em"

There are strange details surrounding an East Texas man who pleaded guilty to making threats against the President of the United States of America.

While in court, federal prosecutors say 28-year-old Robert Lee Berkley told them he had plans to eat the President and the First Lady.

When asked if Berkley wanted to retract that statement, prosecutors say Berkley said "Oh, no. I’m gonna eat ’em".

Needless to say, the individual in question is quite disturbed.

    I’ll say, I get heart-burn just thinking about it.
