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.
