In a campaign that's straight out of an extra ridiculous episode of The Good Wife, former Weiner intern Olivia Nuzzi penned a front page story in the Daily News basically saying Weiner is just a sad-sack stepping stone to Huma and ultimately, Hillary Clinton. Now, Weiner’s communications director Barbara Morgan is firing back, telling Talking Points Memo that Nuzzi is a fame hungry “bitch” who “sucked” at her job. Also, she's a “slutbag,” “twat,” and “cunt”. Oh my?
Watch as Morgan summons the fire of a thousand suns and channel it into pure hatred for Nuzzi:
“I’m dealing with like stupid fucking interns who make it on to the cover of the Daily News even though they signed NDAs and/or they proceeded to trash me,” Morgan told TPM, referring to a non-disclosure agreement. “And by the way, I tried to fire her, but she begged to come back and I gave her a second chance.”
Morgan went on to suggest Nuzzi would be unable to get a job in New York City’s political scene as a result of her actions.
“Fucking slutbag. Nice fucking glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again,” said Morgan.
Harsh! Although, don't you think Nuzzi should use part of this on her gravestone? "Here lies a fucking slutbag who once had a nice fucking glamour shot of the cover of the Daily News." We should all be so lucky.
Morgan says that Nuzzi begged for a job on the campaign, only to do a shitty job after she was hired.
“She sucked. She like wasn’t good at setting up events. She was clearly there because she wanted to be seen. Like it was, like, terrible and I had to like - she would like, she would just not show up for work,” said Morgan. “For the four weeks she worked there — she didn’t work weekends, so twenty days total. Of those twenty 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.”
Morgan also expressed disbelief that Nuzzi criticized her credentials.
“And then like she had the fucking 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? Fuck you, you little cunt. I’m not joking, I am going to sue her.”
It's looking like this campaign is run a little like Weiner's sexting social life — ill-advised, impulsive, and ultimately ruinous.
