Sharpton to Weiner: ‘Either Fully Explain or Shut Up’

Could this be a new low for Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.)? The Rev. Al Sharpton practiced tough love as substitute host of MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” last night and gave the Weiner-embroiled congressman a piece of his mind. More like a chunk. Sans relish.

“As someone who has been through his fair share of controversy I have some crisis management advice to offer Congressman Anthony Weiner. Stop talking when you’re faced with a  controversy. You either fully explain what happened or you shut up. And don’t announce that you’re not going to talk about it anymore, just stop talking about it. I hope for the congressman’s sake that he is able to keep his mouth shut from now on.”
