Donald Trump chimed in on the Anthony Weiner scandal today, releasing a YouTube video detailing exactly what the real estate mogul thinks about the scorned New York congressman.
“The fact is -- Anthony Weiner is a bad guy. He’s a psycho, and when this came out I was not surprised at all,” Trump said in the video.
Trump acknowledged Weiner’s political drive and expressed shock that he would participate in such risky behavior that could jeopardize his political career.
“Little did anybody realize, especially me, that he’d get in this kind of trouble. I thought that his career was so important to him. The fact is -- what he was doing was more important or probably he just had a death wish.”
Trump claimed Weiner contacted him multiple times asking for campaign contributions in the past. Trump said Weiner should never run for public office again.
“He’s a liar. He should never ever be allowed to run for office again. What he’s done is incredible and what he’s done to his family is truly a shame.”
“The fact is one thing good came out of Anthony’s mess – I’ll never have to give him campaign contributions and that’s really wonderful.”
