Former presidential hopeful Newt
Gingrich greets customers at a Chick-Fil-A drive-through window.
Gingrich was on hand at an Anderson,
South Carolina outlet while campaigning during the state's primary.
Chick-Fil-A has come under heavy
criticism after its CEO, Dan Cathy, said that gay marriage is
“inviting God's judgment on our nation.”
The comments were criticized by Mayors
Thomas Menino of Boston, Rahm Emanuel of Chicago and Ed Lee of San
Francisco. Menino said he would work to block the eatery from
entering the Boston market, while Emanuel said the company does not
share “Chicago values.”
“What kind of Chick-Fil-A sandwich
would you like?” Gingrich rhetorically asks a drive-through
“Do you like Chick-Fil-A?” he asks
a young boy at the window filming the encounter with his phone's
“Yup,” he answers.
“Good,” Gingrich responds. (The
