Anthony Weiner is standing by campaign spokeswoman Barbara Morgan after she went on an expletive-laden rant against former intern Olivia Nuzzi.
After Nuzzi went public with some less-than-flattering insight in the N.Y. Daily News, Morgan referred to her as a "f--king slutbag," a "tw-t" and a "cu-t".
Asked by a reporter if Morgan was still working for him, Weiner replied: "You bet."
Morgan, communications director for Weiner's campaign, apologized after ranting to Talking Points Memo about Nuzzi, who had criticized Weiner and Morgan.
Nuzzi stated that people only work for Weiner's New York City mayoral campaign to gain access to his wife, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Morgan called Nuzzi a fame-hungry "bitch" who "sucked" at her job, and said “It’s all bulls--t. I mean, it’s such bulls--t. She can f--king ... f--king tw-t.”
"F--king slutbag. Nice f--king glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again."
"And by the way, I tried to fire her, but she begged to come back and I gave her a second chance. 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."
In a statement to Business Insider, Morgan said: “In a moment of frustration, I used inappropriate language in what I thought was an off-the-record conversation."
She adds in her mea culpa that, "It was wrong and I am very sorry, which is what I said tonight when I called and emailed Olivia to apologize."
Talking Points Memo's Josh Marshall said there was zero doubt he was going to report this and "no question that the interview was on the record."
"I tend to think that 'off the record' niceties go out the window the minute someone calls another person a 'slutbag' or a 'cunt,' but that's just me," he added.
Olivia Nuzzi, meanwhile, has since changed her Twitter bio to "Slutbag, twat and cunt."
No word if Sydney Leathers has changed hers to "naughty but nice aspiring porn star."
Anthony Weiner is inexplicably still in the race for mayor as of this report.
