Anthony, I think there is something wrong with you.
And that concludes another in-depth interview with Anthony Weiner.
Did you see The Last Word last night? If not, please... Watch. The. Video.
That had to be the most worthless excuse for a conversation I've ever seen on a cable Tee Vee "news" show, with the exception of any given Sarah Palin Moment, of course. It had no value whatsoever, unless you consider humiliation a plus.
When I heard Lawrence repeatedly tease his Anthony Weiner segment, all I could ask was, "Why? Why was he invited on? He has no chance to win the mayoral race, he's a laughingstock, and nobody cares."
No, seriously, nobody cares.
I watch The Last Word nearly every night, and there are peaks and valleys, as there are on every show, but this particular segment... Seriously?
Pseudo, unintentionally comedic psychobabble trying to mimic analysis, followed by endless, self-indulgent rants intended to get ratings but accomplishing literally nothing else...
Not so much as allowing Weiner to answer a question? No, check that. Not so much as posing a question...
Interminable accusations, smackdown after smackdown, out and out bullying...
Lawrence sounded insane and Weiner sounded like an asshole. Or vice versa. Or both. Yet I somehow found myself rooting for Weiner. Now that's an accomplishment.
And after enduring seven minutes of meaningless, unproductive badgering, I never did find out who Weiner was lobbying for. That is, if he ever was a lobbyist.
Here's the superfluous, nearly as cringe-worthy online sequel that for some unknown reason, Weiner agreed to partake in. If you ignore it, I applaud you:
Bigger guys than you have tried to knock me down.
The ever-delusional Anthony Weiner.
