Must-see morning clip: Anthony Weiner invokes 9/11 in new campaign video

Anthony Weiner’s campaign is a sinking ship at this point, trying to patch up damage caused by another sexting scandal, an outspoken intern and a loose-lipped communications director. To distract everyone from the circus that Weiner created for himself, he released an audacious video that compared the entire debacle to 9/11. He’s not going to quit this race because “quit isn’t the way we roll in New York City. We fight through tough things. We are a tough city.”

In the words of John Oliver: “No no no. You are not doing this. You are not 9/11-ing your dick pics. No! No! There is a line, and you just went over that line!”
