How do you feel about being at the center of this controversy.
-- -- is this is the biggest one I've ever been a part of but it's only big because congressman -- refuses to take that hints of the American people.
-- is on Democratic Party.
And and is maintaining his narcissistic posture and trying date to stay in power I mean that.
He will be out of office I can't envision a scenario.
In which he has not told to leave I can only imagine he's just you know right now trying to craft the best.
You have parachute for M I had to get out of town because this guys I've never seen anything like.
This this guys as toxic as it gets right how did you get the photographs that Opie & Anthony somehow.
Took from your iPhone and displayed to the world.
-- -- out was from.
Our -- to appeared in an ABC news.
You know package and also on Hannity show by the name -- mag and Broussard.
And she had reached out -- Mean or a person represented her all week before this scandal even broke.
So there where there were two tracks to this scandal there there was the original tweet.
But before that -- and Broussard had -- a person contact us we were only able to hook up with -- and as of last Friday and that's why we released a series of photos.
-- to the X rated one.
On Monday which caused him to hold the press conference did you actually think that showing the X rated photo -- characters like Opie & Anthony of whom we all know.
They could be trusted not to review not to publish it as they eventually -- He will -- hindsight is twenty.
One and I obviously regret the decision but I -- I had been befriended by Anthony.
I know Jim Norton threw a group of people in New York we've gone out that we -- it was very friendly and I eight.
Should have just headed to LA acts after a very.
Interesting 48 hours but it said you know life.
Anthony brought me my phone charger to my hotel after I left today at my apartment and I -- I'm gonna stop by.
And -- say hi to the guys and you know when they kept -- me.
You can hear it on the tape I'm saying look I have no intention to make this thing public.
-- and they they told me there are no cameras in here.
All the things that were said to assure that they -- going to do anything like this and apparently a secret camera took a picture of my camera.
And it disseminate onto the Internet and that it is what it is I am I didn't publish it I choose not to publish it.
Gawker dot com is not dating anyone -- wire you publish in.
This thing it is newsworthy -- -- any drew back.
Item that was published in the manner in which you just described it.
Is this the photo to which you -- referring when you took the podium at the -- press conference here in New York the other day.
And -- I'm holding one photograph back to keep them honest I'm paraphrasing you not quoting you is this the photo to which you -- -- Airing at that time yes I -- I will say it's a variation on and I I certainly am -- one that is in higher resolution.
That if it came out.
In its high resolution form.
I'd rob -- CO.
Nancy Pelosi would be in running shoes telling him get off the stage now this ways this way that this came out now.
Is probably the best way for -- to have come out.
Because quite frankly in its graphic form it's it's too much all right.
Let's talk about the politics of this rather than the scandal about the congress returns to -- in the next week.
Anthony Weiner has been the Democrats attack dog on the issues of entitlement and -- he obviously can't play that role any longer in your view.
Will he be such a distraction.
To the accomplishment of the purposes of the Democrats in the house that they will tell him congressman Weiner you have to go.
I I this has been a -- a complete four cents Monday.
When he admitted everything he took the country through.
-- what -- the Clinton road which was to lie and to blame a vast right wing conspiracy.
And dad the investigations are coming out every single day that there are new women and when the New York Times today.
I turned on him by talking about the girl he tweeted in Seattle.
Where she received this apparently unsolicited.
And they framed him in terms of -- -- something akin to a predator.
I don't think that he can make it to Monday.
All right switching gears.
Newt Gingrich's senior staff and New Hampshire and then South Carolina.
Quit on mosque earlier today a couple of those folks -- very close ties to.
Texas Republicans three term governor.
Rick Perry how do you read this.
Oh well it's obviously devastated -- in what what happened.
A few weeks ago -- as as as relates to Paul Ryan and and what he had to say about they at the social engineering.
On behalf of his plan.
Was I unbelievably devastated.
And this is this is probably the second nail in the coffin I think that stick again another -- come play I obviously don't think that.
Making -- campaign has had in any anywhere.
All right so -- Anthony Weiner.
Out by the end of next week and Newt Gingrich out of the Republican race by -- before you answer that he told us -- on his way to.
Where you have prevented the primary delegates are there other.
Yeah I don't know that as he does great work -- on on many different fronts but obviously this is and his here.
