In Online-Chat, Weiner Puts Down Media, Says He Really Wants to Win

The candidate appeared defiant and hopeful about his chances winning the New York City mayoral race this fall.

Weiner on BuzzFeed: “I’m gonna fight, I’m gonna stand up strong. I’ve shown that I don’t back down very easily.”

It ain’t looking good from any angle you look at him, but in a wide-ranging interview with BuzzFeed Monday night, Anthony Weiner appeared defiant and hopeful about his chances winning the New York City mayoral race this fall.

“I’m gonna fight, I’m gonna stand up strong,” Weiner said. “I’ve shown that I don’t back down very easily.”

“Remember the job you’re voting for. You’re voting for someone to be your mayor, OK? So what do you want for that job? If you want someone that has a spotless personal record, well, you haven’t had a good mayor in years,” Mr. Weiner said.

Asked by Ben Smith why voters are giving him a harder time than Bill Clinton, Mr. Weiner blamed it on the media’s coverage of his sexting scandal. “Coverage has been fairly brutal,” Mr. Weiner said. “I think that there’s this dialogue that goes on about the things in my private life and then there’s this conversation that voters want to have about issues and they’re always in competition. And to try to get the latter to happen you’ve got to clear out the former and to some degree, this has run a fairly predictable course.”

He accused some members of the media of going out of their way to write negative stories about him. The New York Times, he declared, “doesn’t want me to win.”

“The New York Times doesn’t want me to win… Their heads are exploding over the idea… I don’t have fealty to them. I’m not treating a New York Times endorsement as an end to itself…This is the same people that brought you a third term for Mike Bloomberg. I do not care. And it makes them nuts that I don’t care,” Mr. Weiner told Smith.

  1. Ch Hoffman says:

    He's a menuval, and there's no reason to even mention him in polite company.

  2. It's not because he is or is not a menuval that I hope he drops out. I would not see him as worse than some if he were not running.

    But as a potential leader he makes all New Yorkers and all Jews a joke.

    He also shows that he will do whatever he wants and his promises are meaningless. So who, besides himself,would he benefit?

  4. Aldo Mimoun says:

    What he does with his private life is his business. What can he do for New York City is another matter. I strongly believe that he is the best candidate.
    for the citizens of New York.You've got my vote of confidence Anthony.

  5. Benjamin Fox says:

    This low life shouldn't get any job, as he is a immoral idiot and his wife is dumb for putting up with this evil person.

  6. Benjamin Fox says:

    Wow, aldo when a person is that blind and that fooled needs to find his brain where the sun don't shine.

  7. Dave Lobell says:

    Mr. Hoffman I must respectful disagree with you, the reason Weiner is a undesirable candidate of the highest order is not his status a Menuval but his utter lack of a moral compass and personal intergrity. There are many reasons that people that marry outsideof the Jewish faith and I not condone other self righteous Jews having the Chutzpa to pass judgement and ostracize them first without knowing what circumstances which gave rise to such a union.

    I know firsthand what I speak of, I tried to change my life after my Father of blessed memory, a tzadik gadol passed away and my mother passed away just before his Yartzheit, I moved out of my Gentile girlfriend's home to say Kaddish for him and then my Mother in the Orthodox Phoenix community. At 55 years old the availablity of Observant Jewish Woman was very much near zero and I do not have the option of relocating. So you should not be so quick to condemn others without knowing the facts. I cannot stand WEiner and he is an embarassment to al lthe Jewish people who by the way should have been as voiceferoius about abut his run for office as you were about his status as a Menuval!

  8. Dave Lobell says:

    Jean Pierre Katz Well said I agree 100%!!!

  9. Dave Lobell says:

    This latest public appearance by WEINER should convince everyone that he indeed a Sociopath with not hold on reality. He is a huge disgrace to society in general and the entire Jewish people in particular. All Jews should demand his immediate withdrawal from this race and public life in general. Hoiw can we allow this to happen? Come on people get involved!

  10. he's vile and disgusting; a menuval.

    and this idiotic paper is pandering to him and giving him free publicity.

    he's circus

Don’t you feel just a tad jealous of Egypt right now?

Israel’s Security Cabinet is meeting in a marathon session to decide the next step in Operation Protective Edge.

More than 1,550 individuals have immigrated to Israel from Ukraine in the first five months of 2014 alone, more than double the 693 who arrived in the corresponding period last year.

Signs that Islamic State (ISIS – Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) terrorists have arrived in Egypt have appeared in the Sinai Peninsula.

Israelis may have to blame Qatar for the current round of lethal rocket fire, if a report published in Arab media is true.

So imagine, you’re working in the field harvesting cucumbers (or whatever is in season right now) and suddenly the siren goes off – Hamas is shooting rockets at you.
