Anthony Weiner told reporters Wednesday that he is still working with his communications director after she called a former intern a “slutbag” in a curse-filled rant Tuesday, according to the New York Post. Reporters asked Weiner whether the communications director, Barbara Morgan, was still working with him Wednesday.

“You bet,” Weiner said, according to the Post. 

Morgan has since apologized for her comments, which were provoked by stories the ex-intern, Olivia Nuzzi, wrote about her time on the campaign.
