The rent may be too high, but New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner isn’t too freaky for political activist Jimmy McMillan.
McMillian, best known for his trademark phrase “the rent is too damn high,” on Thursday endorsed Weiner in the New York City Democratic primary.
“We are all freaky,” McMillan told Politicker. “He just exposed his freaky-ism the wrong way.”
McMillan is a perennial candidate who uses his campaigns to advocate his platform, so he’s also running mayor (representing none other than the Rent is Too Damn High party). McMillan tweeted a picture hugging Weiner.
Despite being competitors, the two look pretty chummy. He even offered Weiner some advice, telling him not to quit.
“I think Anthony needs someone like me to tell him, ‘Don’t be afraid to go get help if you need it,’” McMillan said according to Politicker.
