Anthony Weiner Campaign Aide Slams 'Slutbag' Former Intern

Quote:
A top aide to New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner had harsh words for a former intern on Tuesday, calling the woman who wrote about her experience working on the former congressman's campaign a "slutbag" who "sucked" at her job.

In an interview with Talking Points Memo, Weiner communications director Barbara Morgan attacked Olivia Nuzzi, the former intern whose story on the campaign was published by the Daily News Tuesday. In the story, Nuzzi accuses Weiner of incorrectly calling several female interns by the name "Monica," and claims that many interns joined the campaign with hopes of landing in the good graces of Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton.

In the interview with TPM's Hunter Walker, Morgan lashed out at Nuzzi for taking her story to the press.

“F***ing slutbag," she said. "Nice f***ing glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again."


Morgan denied many of Nuzzi's claims in her Daily News piece, as well as additional accounts she published on the site NSFWCORP, including a story on multiple departures from the Weiner campaign.

Walker reports:

Quote:
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 “bulls***.”

...

Morgan also expressed disbelief that Nuzzi criticized her credentials.

“And then like she had the f***ing balls 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? F**k you, you little c**t. I’m not joking, I am going to sue her.”
Morgan also characterized Nuzzi's work on the campaign as subpar.

“She sucked. She like wasn’t good at setting up events. She was clearly there because she wanted to be seen," Morgan said.
War on ethics, morals, decency, credibility, and integrity...

She'll be in Clinton's 2016 campaign by late next year...

Weinergate captivates the city and sells the folks what they want. Well, at least some of them. Free press is better than no press.

Slutbag? I wish to meet this Olivia Nuzzi woman. I refuse to take the word of another on an issue as serious as this. I will take one for the team and report back to you my findings. I'm sure I'll have a great time with a woman named "Nuzzi."

These Republicans need to stop demeaning women. What? Oh it was a Democrat saying this? It doesn't matter. The mainstream media and all those who attacked Rush will crucify this woman in the same manner. I'm so confident there won't be a double standard I'm gonna hold my breath until the media calls her out and bashes her over the head with their morality stick.



I've had to hear the President and that retarded puppet who looks like Richie Cunningham on crack babble about phony scandals. You wanna know what's really phony? The Republican war on women rhetoric. You gotta have some big brass ones to make that claim knowing it's more full of crap than a porta potty at a Mexican food festival. Keep lookin' at the shiny thing we're dangling in front of you. That's it, keep looking straight ahead. Don't turn to the left or you'll see Carlos Danger snapping pictures of his crotch on a smart phone before he sends them to half a dozen or so women. Don't look to the right or you'll see Bob Filner slappin' female staffers and volunteers on the ass, calling them derogatory names, and shoving his tongue down their throats. And definitely don't look behind you because you'll see a line of nasty hookers outside Eliot Spitzer's hotel room. In fact don't look anywhere. To prevent you from going blind from hypocrisy overdose we're going to protect your eyes by wrapping this stained blue dress around your head.

Republican war on women my ass. Time to recall that tired old talking point like a 70's Ford Pinto and begin figuring out your next lame-ass lie to smear Republicans with.

Actually the rhetoric is pretty real, and if it were just that coming from both sides, then you'd have a very good point. But what's even more real are the laws proposed and passed by Republicans in legislative bodies across the country. When the Democratic Party joins in on this recent explosion of legislation pushing for state control over womens' bodies, I'll be more than happy to hang the "Hypocrite!" banner over them, and the "A--hole" banner, and the "ultradouche" banner. Until then, seriously this was the 2nd false equivalency thread on this subject in a little more than 24 hours. It ain't just about Rush Limbaugh saying something.

"Hey guise, ignore the thousand or so bills coming from state and federal legislators that would really have an negative impact on your lives, ignore the public proclamations by conservative pundits and lawmakers, and focus on the Democrat that sexted a crotch shot or six, or this catfight between two women, I guess. Besides, totally the same thing right? No! Dick pics are the real war on women, not laws."

Excuse me, but two points...

1) Unlike this democrat, Rush is NOT working for any candidates to elected position...The comparison I made was to Rush Limbaugh...NOT any legislation...

You can try to squeeze in the legislation aspect all you want, but when Rush was on the front page and being vilified for WEEKS for saying "slut", it had ZERO to do with any legislation...Rush was made a leading example of "The War On Women"...

To deny that tells me all I need to know...

2) What Rush WAS referring to was not legislation but EXECUTIVE POWER ABUSE when Obama (not any Republican) decided (unilaterally) to have someone he appointed in his very own administration (HHS head Sebelius) force insurances companies to pay for products that some people feel are immoral and against their beliefs...

In other words, we hear whining about legislative changes, but the same whiners fall silent when the president dictatorially does whatever he pleases...

Ends justify the means...again...

First, context is everything.
If you have somebody of party_X slamming women in a context where party_X routinely legislates away women's rights, that's significantly different from somebody of party_X slamming women but the party routinely protects women's rights.

Second, context is everything.
Rush is getting paid in the $400 million range.
Rush Limbaugh Gets $400 Million To Rant Through 2016 - Business Insider
And this is being paid by listeners for what he is saying.
This campaign aide? No idea who Barbara is.


The fact that she is Weiner's campaign aide actually puts things in perspective...

Seriously. Is this the history revision you're going to try?
If that was ALL Rush had done, it wouldn't have been discussed "for weeks".
What WAS discussed for weeks was his reference to the woman as a slut.
And this is in the context of Rush's history of misogynist statements...
http://www.thejanedough.com/famous-rush-limbaugh-feuds/

And as discussed above, I can appreciate the comparison but trying to pretend they are equivalent is nowhere near realistic.
Rush's relative importance can be seen in his income. EXTREMELY high because people pay attention to what he is saying.

This woman?
No idea who she was until this.
Hopefully she and Weiner will be out of jobs ...

Quite frankly, you shouldn't have raised Rush in this thread as it's trying to complain about the attention given to the mountain cause more people aren't paying attention to the mole-hill.

And the other thing to consider is that not all women are in favor of abortion and free birth control pills. Not all women are fire breathing, single college girl/career women who refuse to even look at partial birth or late term abortions as being against the morals of anyone with human decency regardless of whether it is a religious issue.

In essence, the Democrat's war on women mantra means war on far left liberal women only. The rest of the women can't be considered women according to the Democrats because they refuse to blindly follow the lead of organizations like NOW or Planned Parenthood. Independent thinking is not allowed by the party that call themselves liberals.

If it were JUST abortion, that would be one thing.
But it even extends into other arenas. Like Repubs inhibiting this woman's efforts for justice when she was raped.

Also opposing legislation aimed at preventing gender discrimination in pay.
