The chief spokeswoman for embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has apologized for going off on a curse-filled rant about a former campaign intern who she referred to as a “fucking slutbag,” a “twat” and a “cunt.”

The New York Daily News published an article Tuesday describing what goes on behind the scenes of Weiner’s mayoral bid, written by Olivia Nuzzi, a former intern for the campaign (pictured above).

In her article, Nuzzi wrote that Weiner often called female interns “Monica,” an obvious reference to former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and that most staffers were either very inexperienced or only working for the campaign to get in good with Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin, presumably for her connection to Hillary Clinton.

Nuzzi also claimed that many staffers had “short resumes,” including communications director Barbara Morgan, who she said “last worked as the press secretary for the New Jersey state education commissioner.”

When Talking Points Memo reached out Ms. Morgan on Tuesday to comment on an unrelated story, she launched into a verbal attack on Nuzzi for writing such an unflattering first-person article for the Daily News about her experience working with the Weiner campaign.

Morgan described Nuzzi as a fame hungry “bitch” who “sucked” at her job. Morgan also reportedly called Nuzzi a “slutbag,” “twat,” and a “cunt,” and also threatened to sue her.

From TPM:

“I’m dealing with like stupid fucking interns who make it on to the cover of the Daily News even though they signed NDAs and/or they proceeded to trash me,” Morgan told TPM, referring to a non-disclosure agreement. “And by the way, I tried to fire her, but she begged to come back and I gave her a second chance.”

Morgan went on to suggest Nuzzi would be unable to get a job in New York City’s political scene as a result of her actions.

“Fucking slutbag. Nice fucking glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again,” said Morgan.

According to Morgan, Nuzzi stopped interning for the campaign “like four weeks ago.” Nuzzi’s story on NSFWCORP described her as having spent “four weeks” as a Weiner intern. When asked whether the claims in Nuzzi’s stories were true, Morgan suggested many of them were “bullshit.”

“It’s all bullshit,” she said. “I mean, it’s such bullshit. She could fucking — fucking twat.”

Based on her colorful description of Nuzzi’s cover story, TPM asked Morgan whether she thought Nuzzi joined the campaign with the express purpose of penning a tell-all story.

“I have no idea, but I can tell you she … like accosted me at like our petitioning thing to be able to become my intern, begged me to be my intern, sent me something within like 20 minutes of meeting her and then proceeded to — she came in the next day and was like, basically, ‘I want to be your bitch all summer long, that’s all I want to do is be your righthand person,’” Morgan said of Nuzzi. “I was like, ‘OK, well, it’s not really glamorous, like, you’re going to do clips, and you’re going to do media catching, and you’re going to do x, y, and z and maybe I’ll get you to the point where you’re like doing some other stuff.”

Despite what Morgan described as Nuzzi’s initial enthusiasm, Morgan claimed her job performance left much to be desired.

“She sucked. She like wasn’t good at setting up events. She was clearly there because she wanted to be seen. Like it was, like, terrible and I had to like – she would like, she would just not show up for work,” said Morgan. “For the four weeks she worked there — she didn’t work weekends, so twenty days total. Of those twenty days, she missed probably five because she would just like not show up and not tell me she wasn’t going to be there. So, yeah, so there’s that.”

Morgan also expressed disbelief that Nuzzi criticized her credentials.

“And then like she had the fucking balls to like trash me in the paper. And be like, ‘His communications director was last the press secretary of the Department of Education in New Jersey,” Morgan said. “You know what? Fuck you, you little cunt. I’m not joking, I am going to sue her.”

Not long after TPM published their story, Morgan told the New York Observer writer Jill Colvin that she was under the impression that their conversation about Nuzzi was off the record:

And later, TPM updated their story with an “apology” Morgan issued to Business Insider:

“In a moment of frustration, I used inappropriate language in what I thought was an off the record conversation. It was wrong and I am very sorry, which is what I said tonight when I called and emailed Olivia to apologize.”

This is exactly the type of publicity a guy like Anthony Weiner needs right about now!
