New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner struggled to address a reporter from the United Kingdom’s ITV network during a campaign event on Thursday. Har har har har har. The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple annotated a transcript of the exchange:
Weiner, interrupting question and speaking in an accent that mocks Watson’s: Or the hunger for the big job. Or the hunger for the big job. [noting someone else:] Hello. Uh, why don’t you go to my website, anthonyweiner.com. I want to fight for the middle class and those struggling to make it.
Watson: Would anything stop you?
Weiner: [Laughs and turns cheek] I just have a feeling I’ve, like, stepped into a Monty Python bit. I don’t know, would anything stop me? Now is a rock going to fall on my head? No, nothing’s going to stop me. I’m going to win this election.
