Anthony Weiner Calls Rival "Grandpa," Takes Heat From AARP

by at . Comments

Anthony Weiner is taking more heat this week, but not related to Sydney Leathers for once. He called one of his rivals at a New York mayoral forum "grandpa."

The testy exchange between 69-year-old GOP candidate George McDonald and the embattled, sexting fanatic Democrat, 48, quickly made headlines.

After Weiner touched McDonald's chest in greeting, he barked, "Don't put your hands on me ever again." Weiner told McDonald he has "anger issues."

When McDonald disagreed, Weiner said, "Yes, you do, Grandpa."

AARP state director Beth Finkel says the organization found some of the comments by Anthony Weiner - at the forum it sponsored, no less - "unfortunate."

Finkel said age "should not be a factor in politics, or anything else." Whether a candidate is too busy j--king off to be mayor, however, is a legit question.
