This morning on Imus in the Morning, disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner told Don Imus, “as soon as you are rid of Fox Business, the better off you’ll be.”
“What are you nuts?, Imus fired back, “Roger Ailes is the best thing that ever happened to me.”
“He is a brilliant guy who created an amazing propaganda machine that you should not be part of,” Weiner explained. “You are a straight shooter.”
Later, Imus’s wife Deirdre phoned in and raked Weiner over the coals.
I’m furious he would sit there in the Fox studios and completely, completely disrespect them and everyone that works there. I mean, he is the biggest f-in’ jerk on the planet. He has no leg to stand on. He has nothing hard to stand on. He’s an erectophile, and a bottom feeder in New York on the subway licking the you-know-what off the floor.
Weiner talked about the sexting scandal that led to his resignation from office and revealed that he almost certainly won’t run again for mayor of New York City. “When you choose a public life, when you fall you can’t blame people for seeing that,” Weiner said.
Imus’s final FBN show is later this month. The program will continue on the radio.
