Anthony Weiner: Best Jokes About His Campaign
Anthony Weiner has become a joke among comedians and talk show hosts as he runs for Mayor of New York City. A former Congressman of New York who resigned in 2011 amidst a sexting scandal, Weiner is seeking public office again and, thanks especially to more photos and explicit messages that have emerged during his mayoral campaign under the name ‘Carlos Danger,’ comedians are taking delight in making jokes at his expense. Here Uinterview has compiled some of the best.
“There's a new Anthony Weiner scandal,” said Jimmy Fallon, the host of Late Night. “Weiner is running for mayor of New York City. He confirmed yesterday that some new sexually explicit messages have been leaked. He sent them to a woman on Facebook using the code name 'Carlos Danger.' Which is still easier to believe than that other name: Mayor Weiner.”
"Anthony Weiner said yesterday that he wants closure,” joked The Tonight Show host Jay Leno. “If he wants closure he should start with his zipper."
"According to the polls, Anthony Weiner is the favorite to become the next mayor of New York City,” said Late Show host David Letterman. “How many of you have seen the Weiner poll? Anthony Weiner is out front. Isn't that what got him into trouble in the first place? It'll be a long campaign. All the guy has to do is stick it out. I hope the guy doesn't get cocky. Weiner has a firm lead and his popularity is swelling.”
"Anthony Weiner released a statement today saying 'this behavior is behind me,'” joked Craig Ferguson. “Then he added, 'if you want to see more of what's behind me, I'll text you a photograph.'”
"A new woman has come forward to say that during phone sex, Anthony Weiner would orgasm in 30 seconds,” Conan O’Brien said. “Man, no wonder this guy's so good at apologizing.”
"Anthony Weiner's alter ego is a Bolivian action hero slash porn star," The Daily Show host John Oliver said. "'Danger… is my user name.'"
