NEW YORK, NY – Politicians have a reputation for not playing nice.

But when New York City mayoral candidate George McDonald played with (Anthony) Weiner, things got a little nasty.

The two were at an AARP hosted forum at Hunter College when McDonald says Weiner pat him on the chest.

Here’s the exchange (caught on camera) that followed:

McDonald: “I said keep your hands off me.”

Weiner: “I heard what you said.”

McDonald: “Don’t put your hands on me ever again.”

Weiner: “Really? What’s gonna happen if I do? Are you a tough guy now?”

McDonald: “Yeah, yeah, I am.”

Weiner: “…but your anger issues.”

McDonald: “I don’t have any anger issues.”

Weiner: “Yes, you do, Grandpa.”

McDonald: “Oooh, OK.”

Whoa there, Carlos Danger. You might have sexted some barely legal, but you ain’t no spring chicken.

As for McDonald, did you really want to pick a fight with that guy? He’s doing a pretty good job of taking down his own campaign.
