Spinning Weiner: “I can’t say with certitude” that the package is mine; Update: Jokes to female reporter about being “a little stiff,” more lewd jokes for the press; Update: Weiner and CNN, take two

Scroll for updates…another press interview w/CNN expected in 4pm Eastern hour…

I’ve been tasked with talking about Weiner-gate on Hannity tonight. If you tune in, make sure your kids aren’t watching. It’s getting lewder and cruder by the moment.

NBC’s Luke Russert asked the tweetaholic congressman point-blank this morning if the crotch shot was his, and his Clintonesque answer was:

“I can’t say with certitude” that the pic is mine.

How do you not know what your own, er, junk looks like?

Perhaps his many other tweet-hearts can shed light?



Fun fact: Per Debra J. Saunders, Fox notes this morning that former GOP Rep. Christopher Lee’s Craigslist fiasco received three times more coverage than Weiner-gate.

I think that’s rapidly shifting.

Another Weiner train-wreck press conference is expected later this afternoon.

Drinking-game participants: Take a shot every time he says “debt ceiling,” “Clarence Thomas,” and “jackass.”


Update: Washington Times reporter Emily Miller was part of a group of journalists who tried to question Weiner on Capitol Hill.

She writes on Twitter:

I asked Anthony Weiner if there are photos of him half-dressed out there. He said “if you’ll forgive me, I was a little stiff yesterday…”

Anthony Weiner made about six penis jokes while talking to reporters, standing outside the House floor. He has NO RESPECT for the office.

He said “is there a Weiner joke that hasn’t been made in this case?” I said to him, “YOU are making them all!” I need a shower.”


Update: CNN’s Wolf Blitzer is no Megyn Kelly, unfortunately.

Weiner sat down with the anchor for mostly softball questions and few hard follow-ups.

1) Weiner says directly that he did not send the pic to Seattle college student Gennette Cordova and she did not receive it. Refuses to confirm that the pic is of him.

2) Blitzer: “You would know if this is your underpants.”

Again, Weiner worms out of direct answer. “Sometimes these things happen…When you’re named Weiner, it goes with the territory.”

Interesting word choice. Weiner now refers to the photo as “spam.”

Blitzer: “Have you ever taken a picture of yourself like this?” Rep. Weiner: No answer.

Describes lewd photo as a “randy picture.” Brags again about the number of followers on Twitter he has gained.

Blitzer asking about Weiner ‘s #thats545inseattle hashtag. “Pure coincidence.” Can’t explain why he picked Seattle.

Blitzer asks about porn star Ginger Lee, who has received direct messages from Weiner. Weiner called the message “pro forma.”

Blitzer asks about Weiner deleting all his photos on public photo-sharing service yfrog.

Weiner’s answer is incomprehensible. Hesitates before denying that he asked anyone to delete photos on his behalf.

Blitzer: “Are you protecting anyone.”

Weiner: “Yes, my wife.”

Maybe a little late for that.

Next: Weiner refuses to apologize for calling CNN producer a jackass.
