Anthony Weiner had a really tough time with Ben Smith from BuzzFeed Brews. The New York mayoral race candidate who confessed to sexting last month had some really nervous answers to Smith’s questions. And it showed! It really did.
Check out our list of top three answers from Weiner’s BuzzFeed Brews interview below:
1. Media Coverage
Ben Smith asked Weiner what he thought about the reaction of media when he confessed that he was Carlos Danger.
Weiner said, “Coverage has been fairly brutal. I think that there’s this dialogue that goes on about the things in my private life and then there’s this conversation that voters want to have about issues and they’re always in competition. And to try to get the latter to happen you’ve got to clear out the former and to some degree, this has run a fairly predictable course.”
2. New York City Comptroller Candidate Eliot Spitzer And His 2008 Prostitution Scandal:
Ben Smith brought up comments from Friday's comptroller debate, where Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer (D) argued that Spitzer should have been prosecuted.
To which Weiner commented, "A view on the Comptroller's race in the City of New York? No, I'm not spending a lot of time on the Comptroller's race in the City of New York."
"They're spending a lot of time thinking about you," Smith replied.
"I'm not surprised at that," Weiner said. "But no, I don't have any view on the Comptroller's race, one way or the other."
3. “Why didn't you use Snapchat?”
"Why didn't you use Snapchat?" Smith asked Weiner, referring to the popular photo messaging application.
"I don’t have a good answer to that," Weiner said, looking visibly irritated and very angry.
He sure looks relieved at the end of it all.
