Anthony Weiner used today as an opportunity to get into a screaming match with a constituent.
Weiner’s campaign-turned-clickbait-tour stopped in Borough Park, home to a large community of frum Jews, to get some traditional Rosh Hashanah baked goods today. Weiner was interrupted mid-chew by a man calling him “disgusting.” Unfortunately, the video doesn’t show exactly what prompted Weiner’s ire, though it leads to this schoolyard retort: “Charming, charming. Yeah, it takes one to know one…” After the man continues to shout at Weiner, Weiner goes back into the bakery to confront him. It goes about as well as you’d expect:
Man: You have a nerve to even walk around in public-
Weiner: Oh yeah, and you’re a perfect person?
Man: I’m not perfect, but I didn’t do what you did-
Weiner: You’re my judge? You’re my judge? What rabbi taught you that? What rabbi taught you that you’re my judge?
Man: You’re fine. You talk to God and work out your problems, but stay out of the public eye. That’s the difference.
Weiner: That’s up to you to judge, my friend. I don’t take my judgments to you and I don’t judge you.
Man: You’re a bad example for the people.
Weiner: That’s your judgment?
Man: No, that’s obvious.
