Good Morning, Slutbags: Anthony Weiner’s Mayoral Campaign Is Trying Very Hard to Commit Suicide.
In the P.R. equivalent of, oh I don’t know, taking a picture of your penis and sending it out into the world unwanted, Anthony Weiner’s chief spokesperson on Tuesday got on the phone with a reporter for Talking Points Memo and started talking trash—serious trash—about a campaign intern, Olivia Nuzzi, who wrote a behind-the-scenes tell-all for the New York Daily News.
TPM called Weiner’s communications director Barbara Morgan to discuss an unrelated story Tuesday and she went off on a curse-filled rant about Nuzzi, describing her as a fame hungry “bitch” who “sucked” at her job. Morgan also called Nuzzi a “slutbag,” “twat,” and “cunt” while threatening to sue her.
Morgan went on to suggest Nuzzi would be unable to get a job in New York City’s political scene as a result of her actions.
“Fucking slutbag. Nice fucking glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again,” said Morgan.
Professional! Although it doesn’t seem like the kind of thing an experienced public relations person would put on the record….
“In a moment of frustration, I used inappropriate language in what I thought was an off the record conversation. It was wrong and I am very sorry, which is what I said tonight when I called and emailed Olivia to apologize,” said Morgan.
The Anthony Weiner campaign is now the official candidacy for dick pics and slutbag jokes. This has been today’s entry in, “See, Philadelphia? Your politics could be more ridiculous!”
