A day after unleashing a profanity-laced tirade against former Anthony Weiner intern Olivia Nuzzi, campaign spokeswoman Barbara Morgan poked fun at herself for her faux pas, tweeting a photo of a swear jar filled to the brim with hundred dollar bills and a credit card.
“Not my best day yesterday. Should’ve known better. Gotta pay up,” Morgan wrote about calling Nuzzi a “little c---,” “f---- slutbag” and a “f---- t---,” to Talking Points Memo in response to Nuzzi ripping Morgan and the Weiner campaign in the New York Daily News.
Morgan has since apologized to Nuzzi for the outburst, saying in a statement to Business Insider that she believed the interview with TPM was off the record.
Meanwhile, Weiner is sticking with his spokeswoman despite the controversy. When asked whether Morgan was still working for him, the New York City mayoral candidate replied to the New York Post, “you bet.”

Nuzzi, who claimed that Weiner jokingly called female interns “Monica,” did not initially respond to Morgan’s comment but later accepted the campaign spokeswoman’s apology.
Nuzzi trashed Morgan and the campaign to the Daily News, alleging that interns were only working for Weiner because they wanted to cozy up to his wife, former Hillary Clinton deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin.
Morgan used a variety of profanities in response.
“I’m dealing with like stupid f----- interns who make it onto the cover of the Daily News even though they signed NDAs [non-disclosure agreements] and/or they proceeded to trash me,” she said. “And by the way, I tried to fire her, but she begged to come back and I gave her a second chance.”
“F----- slutbag,” Morgan continued. “Nice f-----glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again.”
