[WATCH] Anthony Weiner lashes out at Jewish man in bakery

Anthony Weiner shouting matchHere’s one New York City voter who won’t be casting a ballot for Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner on Tuesday.

The disgraced former Congressman lashed out at Saul Kessler, a Jewish man who made the mistake of expressing his disapproval toward Weiner’s sexual escapades, during a campaign stop at a bakery in Brooklyn Wednesday.

According to the YouTube video captured by blogger Jacob Kornbluh, Weiner, who also goes by the pseudonym Carlos Danger, first called Kessler a “jack***,” then scolded him for waiting until the mayoral candidate left the shop to call him a “scumbag.”

“What’s that? You wait until I walk out to say anything. That’s courage,” Weiner said.

But it was when Kessler told Weiner that his behavior, which included both sexting and tweeting lewd photos of himself to women that weren’t his wife both during and after his time in Congress, was “deviant” and that he was “a bad example for the people,” that the mayoral candidate got really angry.

“And you’re perfect? You’re going to judge me?” he fired back before asking Kessler repeatedly to “visit his rabbi.”

“I’m not running for office,” Kessler, who was wearing a yarmulke in celebration of the eve of Rosh Hashanah – or the Jewish new year – replied.

The two then got into a discussion over who is superior, with Carlos Danger asking Kessler, “Where do you get the morality to judge me?”

Perhaps the promise of the new year ultimately had an impact on Weiner, as he told reporters afterward the verbal brawl that he would forgive Kessler for his comments.

“Of course, of course, I don’t hold it against him,” Weiner said.

Weiner also sent out the following responses to the quarrel below.

According to Weiner’s camp, Kessler also called out the former Congressman for being “married to an Arab.” Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, is a longtime aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
