The New York Daily News has more on Morgan's tirade today:
Anthony Weiner's communications director trashed a former campaign intern Tuesday in a shocking, profane rant published by a news blog.
Barbara Morgan said Tuesday night that she thought she was “off the record” when she repeatedly called Olivia Nuzzi a “slutbag,” “t--t” and “little c---.”
Morgan was reacting to a column Nuzzi wrote Tuesday exclusively for the Daily News. The college student wrote that some Weiner staffers signed on to the sexting scandal-starred Democrat’s campaign because they thought it might help them land future work with Hillary Clinton.
Nuzzi wrote that there were “a lot of short résumés” among campaign staffers and said Weiner mistakenly called her and several other interns “Monica.”
It was the particular jab on staffers’ job credentials that particularly riled Morgan up.
“You know what? F--- you, you little c--t. I’m not joking, I am going to sue her,” Morgan ripped back to Talking Points Memo Tuesday while calling Nuzzi a “f---ing slutbag" who repeatedly didn't show up during her four weeks as an intern.
"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," she told the blog. "She sucked. She like wasn't good at setting up events. She was clearly there because she wanted to be seen."
Only adding fuel to the fire was seeing Nuzzi's front-page spread with the Daily News — one she sarcastically complimented as a "nice f---ing glamour shot."“I’m dealing with like stupid f---ing interns who make it on to the cover of the Daily News even though they signed [non-disclosure agreements] and/or they proceeded to trash me,” Morgan told TPM. “And by the way, I tried to fire her, but she begged to come back and I gave her a second chance.”
Another day, another crisis for the Weiner campaign.
Morgan, who used to work for Joel Klein at the DOE and obviously knows her way around profanity, misogyny and employee abuse from her tenure with Klein, ought to be fired for this episode.
But Weiner can't fire her because no one else will take her place.
On the flip side of that equation, after Morgan's work for the disaster that is the Weiner campaign and now her 15 minutes of fame calling a former intern a "fucking slutbag," a "twat," and a "cunt," Morgan may not be on anybody else's short list for a job either.
