Weiner Sticking With Aide After ‘Slutbag’ Rant
WEDNESDAY JULY 31, 2013
Anthony Weiner told reporters Wednesday that he is still working with his communications director after she called a former intern a "slutbag" in a curse-filled rant Tuesday, according to the New York Post. Reporters asked Weiner whether the communications director, Barbara Morgan, was still working with him Wednesday.
"You bet," Weiner said, according to the Post.
Morgan has since apologized for her comments, which were provoked by stories the ex-intern, Olivia Nuzzi, wrote about her time on the campaign.

Here's Barbara Morgan on the phone, following her boss.

Oh yes, she is a slutbag, but Weiner is not.

This is why I think the campaign is doomed.
Originally I thought he might be able to survive this, but things are spiraling out of control.

He is a low-class fool with a lousy, unprofessional staff.

Wow. Barbara Morgan is a vile woman. Feminists need to roast her alive for slut-shaming an intern who spoke out against a sexually predatory boss.

What else is he going to do? It's not like his phone is ringing off the hook with rats wanting to get on his sinking ship.

[quote][bold]“Fucking slutbag.[/bold] Nice fucking glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. [bold]Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again,”[/bold] said Morgan. According to Morgan, Nuzzi stopped interning for the campaign “like four weeks ago.” Nuzzi’s story on NSFWCORP described her as having spent “four weeks” as a Weiner intern. When asked whether the claims in Nuzzi’s stories were true, Morgan suggested many of them were “bullshit.”
[quote]“It’s all bullshit,” she said. “I mean, it’s such bullshit. She could fucking — [bold]fucking twat.[/bold]”
[quote]Morgan also expressed disbelief that Nuzzi criticized her credentials. “And then like [bold]she had the fucking balls[/bold] to like trash me in the paper. And be like, ‘His communications director was last the press secretary of the Department of Education in New Jersey,” Morgan said. “You know what? [bold]Fuck you, you little cunt.[/bold] I’m not joking, I am going to sue her.”

Well she is a slutbag. She went on Howard Stern and hinted she was getting into porn.

Her language is terible, but I can see why she is annoyed.
The really young, dumb famewhore women mutually drawn to Weiner are all coming out of the woodwork and saying horrible things. They make Monica Lewinsky look classy and mature.

The campaign is in total meltdown now. I cannot see why anyone would keep working for it at this point. There is absolutely no way he can bounce back now.

"Well she is a slutbag. She went on Howard Stern and hinted she was getting into porn."
r10, we are talking about the intern who quit the campaign, not the woman with whom Weiner was sexting.
Even if we were talking about the woman with whom Weiner was sexting, Morgan's calling her a slutbag, cunt and twat would still be outrageous!
When I first read these reports, I thought this had to be a hoax, something out of the Onion.
Weiner should get the fuck out of dodge already. And I say this as someone who, while I wasn't going to vote for him in the first place (I'm a DeBlasio guy), didn't give a fuck about his digital wanking off and cock pics. I don't even care about his exaggerating his recovery or covering up his continued sex play. I really don't give a shit (just as I don't give a shit about other politicians liking to fuck a lot and lying about it when questioned about it).
The fact is that he's an arrogant asshole. And, no matter how one feels about Israel's continued occupation of the West Bank, the fact is that Israel is occupying the West Bank and that Weiner's unrepentant declarations that Israel is not doing so is delusional.

Are you reading the same article we are? The woman being called a slut-bag is a former intern of Weiner's. She never had sex with him, she just wrote about her experiences working with the campaign.

Barbara Morgan is right on this one. This intern looks like just another famewhore cow. Trying to cash in. Sooooo over this shit.

It doesn't matter that the intern is a famewhore cunt. You don't say it out loud. Barbara Morgan is supposed to be a communications director. Her job is to deal with the press. Hell Amanda Bynes would make a better communications director.

I did read it. She is dumb, young, entitled, a tattletale and a famewhore, although less obnoxious than the porno blabbermouth on Howard Stern. She presumbaly did sign an agreement and now she's spitefully spilling the beans. Companies who hire interns need to beware of some young people like this. They have no loyalty and they will say anything to kick you if you are down.
Like another poster, I thought this was a parody out of the pages of the Onion.

Absolute lack of judgement for him and anyone working on his campaign.

Barbara Morgan will never work on a campaign again. I say this as someone who knows several people who were in leadership positions at OFA, Obama's campaign. I can't imagine any of them speaking like that or even having the time to think those things. And then to say those things to a reporter?! Even if you thought you were off the record it's bananas. It gives the reporter the impression that the campaign is imploding, which indeed it is.
I think it's sad that a lot of the people working in the campaign are only doing so for access to Huma so that they may get Hillary 2016 campaign positions. They'd be more likely to get Hillary positions if they spent their time acquiring some hard skills like data mining and analytics, not whatever soft position they are currently in.

At first I was all for his candidacy, despite the dic pics, but now the repubs are using him and Filner to show that the Dems have their own war on women, so I think it's time to go.

She probably first heard the term "slutbag" from Huma.

Don't things normally get pretty rough in politics? Particularly during times when your candidate is down? I would assume people often lose their tempers and swear.

The intelligent ones don't lose their tempers in view of the press.

Politicians swear constantly when the cameras are off them because they are not allowed to swear before cameras or microphones: both Clintons and Weiner infamously all have filthy and abusive mouths when they are off camera. But you cannot--CANNOT--swear in front of reporters; and you especially cannot vow revenge against staffers publicly because it makes your campaign team sound like the Mafia.
This Barbara Morgan woman is done in politics, just like her boss.

They learned it from companies who have no loyalty to anyone and will cut employees to pad the salary of the millionaire CEO. Why be loyal to a bunch of dirtbags? Its kill or be killed in the corporate and political worlds.

For a communication director Barbara Morgan certainly uses 'Like' a lot. I wouldn't hire her for that alone.

Anthony Weiner spokeswoman Barbara Morgan promises to pay for intern rant
[quote]In a nod to a rant in which Morgan called ex-intern Olivia Nuzzi a ‘slutbag’ and worse, the communications director tweeted a photo of a 'swear jar' stuffed with $100 and $50 bills and a Visa card.

When you are a junior person on a campaign -- not in a corporation -- you need to suck up some of the difficulties you encounter. You do not come out and share the dirt on people who are more accomplished and savvy than you are.
The internet has changed everything of course. College-age people, praised from the age of three, let everything all hang out.

Meanwhile, the Democratic leadership is quiet on this scandal and the scandal involving the Mayor of San Diego. He seems to be the worst guy of all of them.
War on women indeed. Who knew the Democrats would be the one holding the proverbial guns.
