Barbara Morgan, Anthony Weiner Aide, Laughs Off Profanity-Laced Rant With Tweet

Anthony Weiner's communications director Barbara Morgan laughed off her profanity-laced rant against a former intern with a tweet on Wednesday:

Morgan hurled foul-mouthed insults, including "slutbag" and "f**king tw*t," at former intern Olivia Nuzzi in an interview with Talking Points Memo. Nuzzi told the New York Daily News earlier this week that staffers were joining Weiner's campaign in order to get closer to Huma Abedin and even a way into Hillary Clinton's potential 2016 run for president.

Despite Morgan's epic rant, it appears as if Weiner is willing to give her a second chance. When a reporter approached the scandal-plagued mayoral candidate on Thursday and asked if Morgan was still on his communications team, the embattled mayoral candidate answered, "You bet."
