Marion Barry: Happy Mother’s Day to ‘my ghost tweeter, a nurturing cancer’; Update: Barry explains

Mother’s Day gratitude at its finest. Forget the FTD floral arrangement and hug coupons, just let mom know she’s the best “nurturing cancer” ever!

But that odd phrase (hopefully a typo or astrological reference) is sidetracking us from the real news here: Marion Barry has a ghost tweeter? We hope she was hired after his account tweeted out pictures of ‘dirty’ Asian businesses.

Actually, we’re guessing Barry’s ghost tweeter is about as real as Anthony Weiner’s hacker, which is just as well since he called her a “cancer.”

Barry had more appropriate Mother’s Day greetings for other moms:

Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's of Ward 8! Lots of graduations today. What a wonderful Mother's Day gift. Love, MB <3

What a beautiful sunny Mother's Day in DC! Birds are singing, trees in full bloom, gentle spring breeze. Give ur moms the love God gives us

To all the single mom's–you have my love, admiration & support. I know how hard it is. But struggle is evidence that you haven't given up!

UPDATE:

Marion Barry contacted us via Twitter to clarify what he meant by “nurturing cancer”:

@TwitchyTeam "cancerian" (always a challenge to get the exact message across in 140 or less) 😉

He had no comment on our speculation about whether his ghost tweeter really exists.
