"I want to thank her for that, as well."

Anthony Weiner thanked his communications director — who famously referred to a former intern as a "bitch," "slutbag," "twat," and "cunt" — in his concession speech, because she "mastered new levels in salty language."

Weiner's spokeswoman Barbara Morgan made the comments back in July to Talking Points Memo after a former intern appeared on the cover of the New York Daily News with a tell-all about her time as an intern.

"Let's not forget our communications director Barbara," Weiner said. "She — she didn't sleep more than an hour because she had to sleep with one eye open defending me all the time and she mastered new levels in salty language. I want to thank her for that, as well."

Weiner is set to finish last among the major candidates in the primary tonight.
