On Monday night, embattled New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner encountered a heckler who let him know — expletives and all — what she really thinks of him. Jane Borock came armed with her cell phone, telling the former Congressman that he is “disgusting” and “an embarrassment,” among other offensive sentiments.
His attempts to calm Borock, a 35-year-old art director, were epic failures, as the woman continued to unleash on him.
“You are disgusting! You are an embarrassment of a third-generation native,” she said. “Your little overnight sleepover in public housing. F**k you! Go back to your little Hamptons house.”
Weiner, at first hoping to stop the chaos, told Borock that he admired her passion. But that apparently wasn’t enough to stop her, as she apparently didn’t show up to make nice.
“I’m passionate? More passionate than you on Twitter. I’m a social media expert,” she responded. “Get someone to handle your s**t! You are disgusting. Disgusting,“ she continued, according to Politicker.
From there, Weiner lectured Borock, urging her to calm down and noting that children were around. Of course, she told the mayoral candidate that he’s in no position to speak about appropriateness (or the lack thereof). Later, they clashed again, with Weiner telling her, with more fervency and force, to leave him alone.
“One person yelling isn’t going to stop me! The kind of mayor I’m gonna be is going to be to stand up to people yelling!,” he said, later adding, “I love how crazy I make some people.”
