D.C. Mayor Marion Barry got into a profanity-laden fight with Geraldo Rivera on Saturday night, telling the host to “stop the bullsh*t” about his conviction for crack cocaine, before ultimately showing empathy for embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner.

“One bit of advice to the congressman,” Marion Barry said. “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.”

“In terms of Congressman Weiner, I certainly understand not what he did, but what happens to you after that,” Barry said. “Your family suffers from it, your wife suffers from it.”

This advice from the mayor followed a testy exchange with Rivera after the host characterized Barry’s scandal as “much worse” than Weiner’s or San Diego Mayor Bob Filner’s, noting that Barry was videotaped smoking crack cocaine and “got re-elected mayor anyway.”

Barry did not appreciate this summary, arguing that he’d never smoked crack cocaine, adding that he didn’t know what he had smoked in the incident that led to his arrest. “You bought crack from crack dealers and you were smoking it and you didn’t know what it was?” Rivera asked.

“Will you stop this bullsh*t about me doing something that’s not factual?” Barry said.

“You want to apologize to our viewers for the obscenity you just uttered?” Rivera asked.

“I’m sorry, I got upset,” Barry said. “When people lie like you just did, I get upset.”

Watch the full exchange.

    To Barry’s credit Rivera is a BS artist, but then Barry ought to have appreciated the artform from a fellow master.

  4. Marion Barry is an embarrassment!! And I still scratch my head trying to figure out why the people of DC RE-ELECTED this embarrassment!! Out of all the people in DC they couldn’t find someone else to elect other than Barry!!

      If you lived in DC you would know why he was re-elected, because he alone did far more for the city, the kids, the elderly than any other mayor before him and after him. What people don’t understand is that if it was drugs that was in that pipe, he did that to himself not the city. People hate on this man and know nothing about him or what good he brought to the city. When was he better known as a crackhead just off that one incident, really? I’m sure we all have drug users in our families and/ or friends but do we call them by their name or do we call them crackhead, smh. Let’s talk about who wasted so much money in setting him up and for what 6 mths in prison, what a waste of money.

      • Wow Mike sounds like your living in just the situation I was eluding to…your obviously upset
        that I brought it up.. now assuming you were not Murdered in a drive-by on your way home from
        the strip club last night
