Weiner spokesperson rails against ‘sl-tbag’ former intern: ‘It’s all bullsh-t’

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-NY) bid to become New York City’s Mayor was backtracking after another incident on Tuesday, after his press secretary went off on an expeletive-filled rant against former intern Olivia Nuzzi for penning two unflattering accounts of her experience on the campaign.

“F*cking sl*tbag. Nice f*cking glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News,” Weiner’s communication director, Barbara Morgan, told Talking Points Memo on Tuesday. “Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again.”

WNBC-TV reported that Morgan issued a public apology for her statements, adding that she had also contacted Nuzzi by phone and email to apologize.

“In a moment of frustration, I used inappropriate language in what I thought was an off the record conversation,” Morgan said to WNBC.

That contradicts TPM report on Tuesday that Morgan made her remarks in the middle of an on-the-record interview on a separate story.

Nuzzi first published a story regarding Weiner’s campaign in a July 28 piece for NSFWCorp, in which she wrote that his former campaign manager, Danny Kedem, resigned because the former congressman had lied to him regarding the “timing of his sexting scandal.” Nuzzi also reported that five other staff members had left the campaign, with one anonymous former staff member saying Weiner had underpaid him. Nuzzi is identified in the story as having worked for the campaign for four weeks.

“It’s all bullsh*t,” Morgan told TPM on Tuesday. “I mean, it’s such bullsh*t. She could f*cking — f*cking tw*t.”

In a July 30 column for the New York Daily News, Nuzzi wrote that other interns told her they had joined Weiner’s team in hopes of becoming close to his wife, Huma Abedin, thus potentially having a chance to be noticed by Abedin’s former employer, former Secretary of State and potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and also alluded to Morgan’s former job as “the press secretary for the New Jersey state education commissioner” in describing the “short resumes” among Weiner’s staff.

Nuzzi also described an instance in which Weiner failed to live up to his boast of being able to remember each of his 20 interns’ names at will.

“Monica,” he said. No, it was Stephanie. Then he called me “Monica.” Wrong again. He got the next three interns’ names wrong, and then called the whole thing off. Last week, I am told, some people on the staff were wondering why he hadn’t called the campaign off. I left after a month to begin taking summer classes. On Tuesday, Morgan suggested to TPM that Nuzzi took the job in the first place to be able to write her stories, saying Nuzzi begged her for the position and said she wanted to be Morgan’s “b*tch.”

“She was clearly there because she wanted to be seen,” Morgan told TPM. “Like it was, like, terrible and I had to like – she would like, she would just not show up for work. For the four weeks she worked there — she didn’t work weekends, so twenty days total. Of those 20 days, she missed probably five because she would just like not show up and not tell me she wasn’t going to be there. So, yeah, so there’s that.”

Our socioeconomic stations in life, including employment, are more closley correlated with physical appearance than even with education.

We don't seem to mind this. Perhaps we should.

This summary leaves out the funniest part - Morgan called her a cunt!

Lol. These people are all such sociopaths.

My sister's married name is the same as the spokesperson, and she said views of her Linked In profile have gone WAY up since the story broke.

I'm shocked that sociopaths work behind the scenes in politics...

By the way, if I was a corporate CEO, I would immediately hire the intern, then call Morgan to tell her, call her a stupid bitch and promise to make her life hell as much as I could.

Nothing worse than a cunty woman in a position of power.

Is that really a position of power, R8? She's on a boat that's sinking at the dock before it can sail.
