Self awareness fail: Anthony Weiner tells British reporter ‘it’s hard to take you seriously’; Update: Video added

From the “dead parrot” sketch to a dead campaign’s final stretch, the great Weiner Implosion of 2012/2013 continues as the New York City mayoral candidate campaigned in Harlem today on his mission to be the funniest joke in the world:

The painfully obvious point is made:

If we can find video we’ll post it as an update.



What a colossal douchebag.

    “You. Can. Not. Be. Serious!”

    • IceColdTroll

      How bout, “Surely you can’t be serious!”?

      • Garth Haycock

        I am; and don’t call me Shirley.

      • Brown Bear Mike

        Works for me ….

    • Lisa Dean

      I think even Benny Hill would say to Weiner WTF?

    • Hired Mind

      Just wasn’t complete without the video…

  • Republicanvet

    Uh, Weiner, your life for the past 2 years has been much worse than a Monty Python skit. Idiot.

  • ObamaFail

    That’s hilarious. That moron thinks he has any right to call anyone else “hard to take seriously?”

  • IceColdTroll


    Imagine someone talking to a black reporter and he says, “You remind me of Fred Sanford!”

    “It’s hard to take you seriously” is a refreshing change.

    After all, he’s usually saying “check it out ladies, it’s seriously hard!”

  • Buffalobob

    The dork that keeps on giving.

    • Garth Haycock

      The dork that keeps on tweeting.

  • trixiewoobeans

    You know, this could be taken another way…more Weiner/style.

  • Truth

    Weiner is the Monty Python skit and the joke of NYC.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    It’s hard to take you seriously…but it’s serious to take me hard.

    How about it baby?

  • TocksNedlog

    So, he was making fun of her British accent.

    What’s next? Weiner and Joe Biden walk into a 7-11 and sing “Hooray for Bollywood”?

  • Rulz

    I lived in the UK for about four months, and the one thing about their media is that they will more often than our media call it like they see it.

    And they aren’t about to let fawn excessively over the conservatives or the labour party across the pond.

    Let’s just say no one is fainting over Tony Blair, Gordon Brown or David Cameron.

    Can you see the difference?

    The United States shall guarantee to every state a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion.

  • capisce

    Even Carlos Danger cant believe he said that with a straight face.

  • BeautifulAmerica

    Wasn’t there a movie named after him called “Hideous & Kinky”?

  • HannahJK

    I guess it’s true that Amanda Bynes is his new campaign manager.

  • Elaine

    He is such an arrogant A$$hole. Talking points.. “middle class and those struggling to make it.” Already sick of these words. What a JERK! Slide back under your apartment door, please.

  • fanofamerica

    Things his staff should be advising him: Do not use the word ‘stiff’ ever in public.

  • live free or die

    Such an arrogant dandy!!

  • John Alvarado

    I would have said “Really? That’s a coincidence because I thought the same about you.”

  • rockerdon

    Class act…..

  • Mom2Ian03

    God he’s a piece of work!

    A STUDY RUSH LIMBAUGH CITED ON AIR TODAY STATES BLACK VOTER’S DO NOT CARE WHAT PERVERTED WIENER DID IN THE PAST. They are more about ‘forgiveness and redemption’ and the fact he’s not a Republican. And neither I, nor I believe Mr. Limbaugh lumps all blacks into that skewed way of thinking. And it is precisely that sort of thinking which will destroy America, but it’s what Democrats seem to slide by on, thrive on. An example: Hillary Clinton. Who has a worse rap sheet!? And yet, the party that gave you California, Chicago and Detroit, IRS, NSA, SEC, GSA, Benghazi and on and on, and who have zippity doo dah to run on feel confident that ‘Lo Info’ stupidity and bartering America’s safety, prosperity and world stature for…for WHAT(!) for power? In exchange for ‘freebies’ to a class of people they will keep down forever to tease and tempt with the hope of leaving government dependency behind? Democrats have no intention of taking their boot off the throats of their permanent ‘underclass.’ When have they ever? And well educated, successful black American’s know this. Ever notice? As soon as a black conservative opens their mouth, they are a target. Like the wonderful Deneen Borelli. Like Sarah Palin. Or Mr. Cruz. Destruction is the name of their game. How exactly is annihilating an entire political party American? IS THIS STILL AMERICA!?

    That a pathetic, mentally disturbed person is running for Mayor of New York City and has the blessing of his party should be an indication of how low and depraved those who have appropriated the Democratic party really are.

  • The Jackal

    What a dickhead.

  • Charm7

    Arrogant bastard!

  • AnneCink

    The women staff members at the end seem to swoon at him! Disgusting! (Um, did I say “member” – teehee!)

    • therealguyfaux

      “Uh, heh heh… uh heh heh… He said ‘hard’ …uh heh heh, uh heh heh…”


    So, does this guy still have a chance to actually even get votes? I would be shocked.

  • therealguyfaux

    And now, for something completely different, will NOBODY give this waste of good oxygen the “Spanish Inquisition” treatment?

  • JD Son

    It’s difficult to take someone seriously with the last name “weiner” and also texts to some ugly brunette, and then t brunette hewho uses her 15 minutes of fame to mention weiner as someone desperate to text f*ck herr

  • skhpcola

    What an arrogant, condescending, hubris-filled bloody wanker.
