Anthony Weiner launches into angry screaming match with Jewish voter
Just in case we weren’t sure yet that Anthony Weiner’s bid for mayor of NYC was on life support, he goes and shows his true colors again. The man is truly his own walking reality show. And a really bad one, at that.
Weiner decided to scream and yell at a Jewish voter who dared suggest to the serial sexter that his behavior and betrayal of his wife sets a bad example for the public.
“You’re my judge? What rabbi taught you that? What rabbi taught you that you’re my judge?” Weiner taunted.
“By the way, I fought very hard for this community and delivered more than you will ever in your entire life. You know nothing. You know nothing. Your ignorance is being shown for the entire world,” Weiner screamed at the man, as photographers snapped photos and a crowd watched on.
There may be more that set this off prior to this, but Anthony Weiner has a hard time knowing when to just be quiet and go away.
TIME puts his dismal campaign placement into perspective:
As a rule, it’s bad form for a political reporter to predict the outcome of political election. But it’s safe to say that Anthony Weiner is no longer the front runner in the New York Mayor’s race, which he once led. The most recent Quinnipiac poll put him at 7%, in fourth place, behind Bill de Blasio, at 43%.
This race cannot be over soon enough.
Update: The Washington Post released this update tonight to its earlier post titled Anthony Weiner hits rock bottom:
Updated at 4:52 p.m.: The Weiner campaign this hour released a longer video which shows the man provoking Weiner, calling him a “scumbag” and adding, “And you’re married to an Arab” as Weiner tried to shrug off his remarks.

Good Lord, I’m sick of leftists telling me that no one can “judge” anyone, taking it right down to the level of telling me I’m not even allowed to have an opinion about another person. According to the left, “judging” is the only destructive behavior there is.
The guy arguing with Wiener WAS from the left.
So you’re criticizing him for doing what you’re criticizing the left for not doing: he was judging someone, so obviously he’s not in favor of not judging someone.. (squeeze your horn on that one, harpo)
Why do you think he was from the left? Wearing a yarmulke would make him at least a Conservative, no? I know Hasids vote Republican.
No, RKae was criticizing Weiner (a lefty) for telling the voter that the voter can’t judge him. Got it?
Hey, at least he didn’t whip out his dick and hit the guy with it.
Haha… You can’t argue with people like this. You have to make fun of him. People should be pointing, mocking, laughing, asking him about his dick, etc.
Perhaps he does not appreciate the causal relationship between moral depravity and corruption. His contributions, whatever they may be, will be worth exactly nothing, if he cannot exhibit some self-control. Liberty is only suitable, and possible for individuals capable of self-moderating, responsible behavior. The common theme with all moral laws, including those described in the Torah, is self-moderating, responsible behavior. The standards are quite clear, non-negotiable, and their justification should be self-evident.
Booyah! That voter was AWESOME! He didn’t back down, even while Weiner responded with his mouth full of WHATEVER. Wow! Glad to see WE THE PEOPLE are standing up to the corrupt who are operating OUTSIDE THE NORM. (Sorry to shout. This Syria thing has me REALLY WORKED UP.)
Huma Weiner’s gonna wax Little Anthony’s arse if he doesn’t try to win. Little Anthony’s gonna kill himself if he wins and Huma Weiner’s First Lady of New York.
From what I’ve seen, Weiner is already totally waxed.
The voters are his judge.
Heh … the MSM is gonna miss Weiner. I mean, how often do they get to run a headline like “Weiner Explodes” without incurring the wrath of the censors?
If I were in NYC, I’d vote for the Jewish guy.
The only politician more embarrassing than Weiner is Barack Obama.
Exactly. The proper response to Weiner’s tantrum is “I’m one of your judges because I’m a voter.” Every voter judges candidates. The vote is the result of the voter’s judgment.
Maybe this is flippant armchair diagnosis, but the lack of rudimentary social control suggests that there is a drug or alcohol problem?
Aren’t there multiple Dem politicians who remember stuff which never happened? Maybe when the rest of us got busy in the 80s, they all kept using and have done some bad sh*t which hurt their cognitive capabilities….
Hilary: name after mountain climber, shot at by snipers
Kerry: “seared in my memory”
There’s an Al Gore story too, I’m sure…maybe a song that hadn’t been written yet?
He throws more tantrums than a 2 year old. From my armchair, it looks more like an underdeveloped pons (lower brain where fight or flight is triggered) or damage to the frontal lobe (lack of impulse control.) Part of me wants him to be elected for no other reason than entertainment value.
2017: All is quiet in the Clinton White House and nothing is stirring, not even a louse.
Suddenly there’s a squeal that awakens Hillary and she looks across the bed but no Bill. Then she remembered that it was his turn to take out the swill.
So she arose looking about and yet another squeal was heard in the distance.
Her first thought, “I’m going to kill the conniving SOB,” but Bill entered much too soon to have come from so afar.
So now what??
Another squeal was heard by both, Hillary and Bill and they looked at each other somewhat puzzled.
Then it came to her… And she quickly put on her best Arkansas housecoat and headed down the hallway where the squeals grew louder.
Finally, she reached the door of the source of the commotion, the White House Chief of Staff and it all came together. She had doubts when Bill suggested that appointing Mr. “Danger” to the post and now her worst thoughts were made true.
She made the unpleasant discovery that the office had been converted into a Weinerville operation that would entertain for years…
I would love to see him win. Of course, I don’t live in NYC but still…. he is definitely the gift that keeps giving.
Mandy, that wasn’t an “angry screaming match with a Jewish voter” as you misrepresented it: it was two NYC Jews in a heated discussion. And by New York City standards, a fairly mild interchange. That’s the way they/we converse 90% of the time: “What, you left the GODDAMMED mustard OFFA the pastrami sandwich you ignoramus!!!”
As you are not a native born ‘New-Yawker’ and didn’t grow up there, and weren’t brought up in a Jewish household, and your ear isn’t attuned to the quite ordinary heated conversational rhythm between Wiener and the guy in the yarmulke, I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt that your niggling criticisms (“serial sexter” – blush blush) were from an outsiders perspective, and not another example of conservative ‘gotcha’ journalism to kick (again and agains) a Democrat when he’s down.
Yeah, Weinee-boy has no chance now, but as he said he won’t back down. Good for him. Very Tom Petty-ish. Us ‘native born’ New Yorkers admire nutsos with attitude. That’s why we stuck with Rudy so long, even though his sexual indiscretions were way more reprehensible.
No, he won’t back down, you can stand him up at the gates of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, and he won’t back down.
Run Weenie, run. Then write a book about it (with pictures).
I don’t know, jayjerome. As a native New Yawka, I don’t seem to recall that we were too fond of flashers. And that is all Weiner is, a digital flasher. And since he’s now polling at 7%, I think most New Yawkas agree with me.
Yeah, he needs counseling. But so does half the population of the city. And ‘sexting’ isn’t flashing – it’s partnership digital masturbation.
And Rudy was messing around with numerous women while he was married, among them his communications director (he banged her at City Hall, which was against the law – on the same couch John V Lindsay used to commune with female interns); and then he began a physical affair (not phone sex, but penis into vagina sex) with Judith Nathan, who he met at an upper East Side bar, having carnal knowledge of her at various locations, a year of adulterous sex that cost New Yuckkers extra tax dollars to pay for his increased NYPD detail to drive up to the Hamptons for weekend pokings there; and more money for police dept chauffeur services for Judith as well. And during this philandering time Rudy wasn’t forthright about it with his legally married wife – and when he finally decided to inform her he intended to leave her he did it via a press conference. He wasn’t too cool about the bitter divorce that followed.
Weenie-boy doesn’t even come close to that kind of bad behavior; but did you hear anything about Rudy’s indiscretions when he was campaigning for a presidential nod? Tho it was common knowledge the Sanctimonious Social-Issues Right swept it under the rug.
None of that bad behavior prevented him from being a good mayor. So I guess the causal relationship between fornications of various kinds and running the city is non-existent.
And, Rudi had one indiscretion, whom he married. I didn’t approve. But Anthony can’t seem to stop waving it around.
Are you sure you’re a New Yawka? Why’d you put the “er” in there?
He asks people to judge him and yells at them when they do.
And what was the, “I’ve done more for this community than you’ll ever do” crap?
“You’re my judge”?
Damned straight he’s your judge, you dirtbag. Every voter in NYC is your judge.
I suspect the NYC mayor’s office is out of Weiner’s reach, but history tells us that he’d have a decent chance in Washington DC.
“What makes you think you can judge me?”
Uh, because I don’t text photos of my dick to strange women and lie about it repeatedly?
So they basically made a statement saying he takes the same amount of personal responsibility for his actions as the president does. Honestly who cares how much the other guy ‘provoked’ this reaction from Mr. Wiener, can’t we expect the politician to act like the adult in the situation. Clearly not, if his response was ‘he started it’.
So this is what campaigning looks like, huh?
Is this called “A Makaka moment?”
Notice that Hums ain’t there. So, I guess campaigning with the jerk she’s married to is no longer fun.
Wouldn’t it have been logical to quit?
Perhaps, money he’s collected to run has got to be spent? Though nothing exactly describes what Weiner is doing. Perhaps, he’s just glad the press shows up? Otherwise he’d be walking down a block with retail shops for nothing.
(Did you notice he did make a purchase? Because he’s got a plastic bag! Here, in LA it’s illegal for stores to use them.)
Oh, yeah. It’s “performance art.” The ranter only ranted because he wanted what he said to be on TV. Forget the rabbis. This is politics.
This is so disheartening. I hope New Yorkers wake up and realize what a fine choice Weiner would make.
Forget the current mayor’s campaigns to ban half-liter bottles of sugary drinks; Mayor Weiner would clean up New York, or at least parts of it.
As the centerpiece of his grooming campaign, every few blocks you’d see a poster of Weiner’s smiling face, asking “is your p**** smooth?”
“By the way, I fought very hard for this community and delivered more than you will ever in your entire life.”
Depends on what he means by ‘hard’.
A point I haven’t seen made: Flip the situation. If, God forbid, Wiener gets elected, Wiener will be judging the behavior of the voters and making decrees on what they must do. Yet, Wiener does not give them the same courtesy. He is exactly the kind of person who should never be elevated to a position of authority.
Even with no authority granted to him, he walks around treating others as if he has authority over them.
The man Weiner was talking to was terrific. calm, with a devastating style of cross-examination.
Weiner does not even have the sense to not talk with food in his mouth (not to mention arguing like a 7th grader)
newsflash to weiner: VOTERS MAKE JUDGMENTS ABOUT PEOPLE SEEKING TO BE OUT LEADERS. (check this with your pollster)
Weiner: “How do you have the moral authority to judge me?”
Me: “Because I don’t send text messages of my penis to random women.”
