Anthony Weiner Scandal Discussed by Barack Obama on 'GMA' (Video)
The president calls Weinergate "a tough incident" for them, but says he'll "bounce back."
President Barack Obama spoke about Anthony Weiner stepping down from office in an interview with Robin Roberts that aired on Good Morning America Friday.
"I wish Rep. Weiner and his lovely wife well," Obama said. "Obviously, it's been a tough incident for him, but I'm confident that they'll refocus and he'll refocus, and they'll end up being able to bounce back."
Obama gave an interview to Today's Ann Curry-- who recently replaced Meredith Vieira as host -- earlier this week in which he said Weiner should resign.
Weiner resigned from Congress Thursday following controversy about him sending racy photos to at least six women. He was heckled by a Howard Stern writer, Benjy Bronk.
He was recently approached about a cameo on Entourage.
