Barbara Morgan, Anthony Weiner’s communications director, seemingly lost her mind when responding to Talking Points Memo’s request for comment, calling a former intern for the Weiner campaign a “f***ing slutbag” and a “little c**t.”

Morgan was reacting to a “tell-all” article written by former intern, Olivia Nuzzi, which made the front cover of the New York Daily News. The piece outlined Nuzzi’s rather unsatisfying experience working for Wiener’s campaign.

Here’s what Morgan had to say of “stupid f***ing interns” like Nuzzi, according to TPM:

“F***ing slutbag. Nice f***ing glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again,” said Morgan.

According to Morgan, Nuzzi stopped interning for the campaign “like four weeks ago.” Nuzzi’s story on NSFWCORP described her as having spent “four weeks” as a Weiner intern. When asked whether the claims in Nuzzi’s stories were true, Morgan suggested many of them were “bulls**t.”

“It’s all bulls**t,” she said. “I mean, it’s such bulls**t. She could f***ing — f***ing twat.”

“She sucked. She like wasn’t good at setting up events. She was clearly there because she wanted to be seen. Like it was, like, terrible and I had to like – she would like, she would just not show up for work,” said Morgan. “For the four weeks she worked there — she didn’t work weekends, so twenty days total. Of those twenty days, she missed probably five because she would just like not show up and not tell me she wasn’t going to be there. So, yeah, so there’s that.”

After she cooled off, Morgan apologized for her “inappropriate language.”

“In a moment of frustration, I used inappropriate language in what I thought was an off the record conversation,” she said in a statement to BuzzFeed. “It was wrong and I am very sorry, which is what I said tonight when I called and emailed Olivia to apologize.”
