    wooeee weird psychological stuff going on there behind the eyes.

    • John Q Public

      Which one? I’m surprised show well Weiner handled that.

      • Lion_ess

        You reckon he handled it well? No, .Weiner used his words to try to obfuscate the topic. He didn’t answer the questions, rather asked new questions and, actually, tonight, he has scuttled off, chased out by a pro, into oblivion where he belongs.

        • P1LL

          Come on , we know Weiner is a pervert but the interviewer was not asking him about his dick pic’s , he was asking him why he always wanted to be an elected official.
          He went off on a rant and didn’t give Mr dick pic’s a chance to respond to the question that was asked.

          • Orange

            Weiner got heaps of airtime. He just wouldnt answer the question. He said “it’s not about me, it’s about blah blah people needing me”, ie. psychopath

  • Agent BallSack

    Is Lawrence going for the first suicide by celebrity inquisition? Personally I don’t find Weiner abhorrent and since whales are gay I bet this is voted up a LOT! Seriously. At least his dirty laundry is in the public – a far cry from his running mates. Remember Mayor Guiliani…..Blagojevich….Clinton….Kennedy

    If only a Kiwi journo would apply the thumbscrews to the likes of Norman, if only.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    I think Weiner kicked Lawrence’s ass big time! Like Curryleaf will be kicking Campbell’s soon.

  • In Vino Veritas

    Can anyone imagine John Campbell asking that question of say, Grant Robertson or Jacinda Ardern?
    That was brilliant. And a question that should be asked way more often.

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      Why are you bringing horse lady into the equation here?

      • In Vino Veritas

        Career politican, no real job. Or CPNRJ.

    • jagilby

      Exactly my thought. Substitute “Anthony” for “Grant” in that line of questioning.

  • James Growley

    He has the same vacant look about the eyes as did Rudolph Hess.
