Donald Trump to Anthony Weiner: Stay Off Vine

Anthony Weiner has once again been caught with his pants down, this time on gossip site The Dirty. In response to the social media frenzy, entrepreneur Donald Trump has created a short video message — his first on Vine — to tell the world how “sick” Weiner is and asking him (repeatedly) to stay off the video platform.

After Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 following a highly publicized sexting scandal, transcripts and photos of another racy exchange between the former congressman and an unnamed woman have emerged just in time for his run for New York City mayor.

Weiner’s alleged sexting alias, “Carlos Danger,” became a trending topic on Twitter after the news broke, receiving 52,000 mentions on the network from more than 37,000 people by Wednesday morning, according to USA Today.

Weiner is not denying what happened, nor has he stepped out of the race.

Trump appears to be supporting Republican candidate John Catsimatidis, having recently sang his praises in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. But he isn’t explicitly saying that Weiner should quit politics, just the kind of technology that’s gotten him in trouble.

Watch Trump’s disapproval repeat on a loop for all eternity in this Vine video below.
