Well, things are looking up for Anthony Weiner. He may no longer have a campaign manager, but now he’s got a former crackhead reminding us what a good Democrat he is.

Former Washington, D.C. Mayor Marion Barry said Anthony Weiner is a “good Democrat” who should be talking more about his accomplishments in Congress.

In an interview Saturday night on Geraldo Rivera’s show on Fox News, Barry said, “One bit of advice to the congressman: I’d stop talking so much about now and start talking about what you did for seven terms while he was in the Congress. He’s a good Democrat.”

A couple weeks ago, Barry said he can “identify” with what Weiner is going through.

Earlier in the interview, Barry and Rivera clashed about the ex-mayor’s past brushes with the law.

Barry, who is now a D.C. Council member, balked at Rivera’s characterization of his past drug scandals.

Just imagine the damage Barry could have done back in his heyday if only he had a smartphone.
