With Twitter buzzing over revelations that New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner had emailed nude photos under the alias “Carlos Danger,” Weiner called a 5 p.m. press conference, and we’re guessing the topic wasn’t National Hot Dog Day. Bill de Blasio, who is also running for mayor, didn’t mince words with a tweet issued soon before the press conference was set to begin.
Emerging 37 minutes late with wife Huma by his side, Weiner repeated his apology for his “very public” actions but noted that only 49 days remain in the campaign.
Huma, absent from Weiner’s 2011 press conference, approached the microphones after her husband’s remarks.
Weiner admitted to exchanging inappropriate materials even after his resignation from Congress but insisted it was all behind him.
Not answered during the conference was the question, “How can we trust your judgement?” — shouted by a reporter as Weiner and his wife left the room.
