Hillary Clinton's longtime personal assistant Huma Abedin is finally dumping her scumbag husband. Update!

Courtesy of Mother Jones:

In a statement to NBC, Huma Abedin announced she is planning to separate from her husband Anthony Weiner. 

Anthony Weiner appears to have deleted his Twitter account amid new allegations that the former New York congressman has been sending lewd messages to an unknown woman over the past 19 months, the New York Post reports. The report is the latest in a series of sexting scandals involving Weiner, including one that brought down his 2013 campaign to become the mayor of New York City. 

One of the photos allegedly sent by Weiner, the husband of Hillary Clinton's top aide Huma Abedin, includes their sleeping son.

So to the question of whether or not there are douchebags on the Left to match the douchebags on the Right, I give you exhibit A.
You know in full disclosure there was a time that I really liked Anthony Weiner but damn is he a POS!

And I really feel sorry for Huma.

Not only is the poor woman now under constant attack from the Right Wing, but she also has to put up with this shit.

And I shudder to imagine how the Right Wing and Donald Trump will use this to attack Hillary Clinton. Because you know they will.

Update: Well that didn't take long.

But Ms. Abedin’s separation quickly became political fodder for Donald J. Trump, Mrs. Clinton’s Republican opponent. 

“Huma is making a very wise decision. I know Anthony Weiner well, and she will be far better off without him,” Mr. Trump said in a statement. 

“I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information,” he continued. “Who knows what he learned and who he told? It’s just another example of Hillary Clinton’s bad judgment. It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this.”

And I imagine that is only the beginning.

    Weener has a hard-on for texting.

  2. This is really sad as Weiner has been given many opportunities to keep his pecker in his pants and finger off the phone.
    He has had some progressive ideas that need to be heard and in place.
    Unfortunately, those ideas will get buried in a lonely dresser drawer where he keeps his thong underwear.
    As for a very accomplished Huma, she has been Hillary's confidante for a long time and currently has her plate filled with Trumped-up allegations.
    Painful stuff.

  3. Like myself, surely many an aging baby boomer sees this post and is very grateful to have lived in a time before our carnally-charged, impulsive decision making could be shot around the world and preserved for all time with a keyboard stroke. Dumb Tony, dumb.

    And just why is Trump assuming that Huma would pass classified information? Because she's a woman? Would he have said this about a man married to an adulterous wife?

    Trump: Misogynistic to the core.

      Trump should talk with an illegal as his wife.

    3. Anonymous9:36 AM

      Trump holds her nationality against her. Her parents are Indian but to someone like Trump she's basically an Arab because, well, India is close enough and also b/c she grew up in Saudi Arabia and her father is a scholar in such areas as Muslim affairs.

    4. Anonymous9:45 AM

      Like Trump? The jerk that has had numerous affairs and was married to multiple women?

      Trump is a first-class asshole and is no one to talk about anything sexual!

      Trump is no more qualified to be POTUS than I am! He can't keep his mouth shut for two seconds and is so quick to criticize or put someone down!

      Trump is not someone most would want to follow. I feel sorry for his kids having to come to gripes with the evilness of the boy/man who is called their father!

      He has such a shallow ego! It's amazing to watch and listen to him! Can hardly wait for him to become 'the loser' Trump!

      Vote for Hillary Clinton! I am!

      I just had a thought. If internet as it is now, was available to Trump back when his junk was younger, he may have done what Wiener does. Because, Trump tweets like a teenager. So I know this would have happened. He's so full of himself.

      He isn't. In Trump's sick chauvinistic, misogynist mind, wives are property. Therefore, Hillary really hired Weiner, not Human Abeddin. He can't separate the two parts of a married couple.

    I'm not making any excuses for Weiner and Huma should have left him a long time ago, but he sounds like he has a serious impulse control issues. I have a now divorced brother-in-law who did similar ( but not with pics) and he was later diagnosed with adhd and the prescribed meds did wonders for his ability to control his impulses.

  7. Hillary has a pretty good Rapid Response team. Let's see it at work, answering Trump.

    Weiner is the pits. I'm glad Huma dumped him.

  8. Anonymous9:40 AM

    At last. Huma. Let it go.

  9. Anonymous9:42 AM

    She needed to separate him, and especially with the child in the pic--no way could she have not separated this time.

    Trump had already talked about Wiener of late. I'd heard him a few times mention Wiener over many weeks. To Trump, Wiener's personal life was something he thought he could use against Hillary. And he has also recently brought up the Lewinsky blue dress. But Trump thinks his own personal life with Melania should be off-limits. No way. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

    I want to know when Melania's news conference is going to finally happen. And I hope the people working on getting a hold of all her visa info and work date info are still trying hard to get that info.

  10. Anonymous9:43 AM

    Trump becomes more of a pig every day. What Wiener's doing should be beneath mentioning, but of course Trump goes there.

  11. Marthe9:46 AM

    Trump who was married three times and who had multiple mistresses on top of all the other rumors floating around is hardly in a position to comment. I hope that someone refreshes his memory on that subject.
    I feel sorry for Huma but who could blame her. The photo in which we see her young sleeping son while Anthony is otherwise occupied is heartbreaking. I would hope that he gets only supervised visits with his son. He has already demonstrated that he cannot be trusted.

    1. Anonymous10:27 AM

      Not only does Trump have his own history of repeated infidelity (there's a pot and kettle comment in there somewhere), but one of his closest advisors as he prepares for the upcoming debate is Roger Ailes, who is in the middle of an enormous sexual harassment lawsuit.

      It's truly frightening how he can manipulate reality so that anything and everything relates directly to himself. That's a terrifying prospect in a potential president!

    2. Marthe4:16 AM

      I had forgotten about Ailes. Trump has no shame. He'll use anyone or anything to benefit himself. I shudder to think about what he would do if he would ever become president.

    btw... What happened to Sarah Palin's assistants?

    I hear she may have a concussion. Are her assistants leaving her unassisted at this critical time? Something is wrong.

    They all know about the problems with assassination threats. Sarah and Bristol are so scared they have the man Bristol married going on and on about his purpose is to protect and sell guns and equipment. He is so into his passion he has signed on with a rescue mission to save others who are in a mess.

    As important as health is and Sarah knows all about that, why would she be rock climbing? She knows she is clumsy. Her family of assistants know and I can't believe they would allow her to rock climb. Didn't she and Todd do a promotion about that before. It was a failure? No assistant in their right mind would leave their clumsy boss in danger.

      And let's not pretend Abedin is some low-level aide. Abedin is the Clinton gate-keeper, closest aide, her "second daughter" (Clinton said that). She's stayed with a guy to whome she's given at least 2 second chances. Now he's sexting with a baby in the bed. Goes to judgement.

      This is the danger in using the personal for politics: what goes around always comes around.

      I wish Clinton and her surrogates in the party and the press would resist the urge to get in the gutter with Trump.

      20:33 and 11:32. You didn't do well in logic or debate at school, did you?Bannon (Trump staffer) = perpetrator; Huma (Hillary staffer) = NOT perpetrator. You repeat your idiotic comparison even after somebody points out the very obvious significant difference: Trump chose to have the person with poor judgement directly lead his campaign, whereas Weiner has nothing to do with Hillary's campaign. Btw, in your book it's ok that Trump cheated on a wife and got another woman pregnant.....but you're going to accept his judging Hillary?

    8. Anonymous6:04 PM

      Not to mention, Huma, the innocent and wronged spouse was employed by Clinton long before the sexting happened round 1. Huma chose to stay and work on her marriage (unlike T.rump dump the wife.)
      T.Rump hired Bannon, the voter registration felon, the accused wife beater AFTER he had perpetrated these crimes.

      Huma, like Hillary, really cares only about riding the coattails to the top than focusing on being a good partner in a marriage. Hence, the Wienerman, much like Bill, is off doing his own thing. Huma (and Hillary's) bigger problem is her connection to radical Islamic publications. Hillary may very well have to dump her girlfriend before too long as more is uncovered.

    5. Bullshit. Trump chose to put Bannon on staff and in charge of his campaign. His faults are fair game.

      Weiner has no position with the Clinton campaign. Neither Clinton nor Abedin is responsible for his inability to keep his pants zipped.

    She should have dumped him long ago.

    I'd also like to know what he does for a living? It's not like he'll ever have a political career again. Is he a lawyer and practice law? I can't imagine him being an asset to any firm. I don't see him making money from the media as a commentator or pundit.

    Now, after this, he is simply a public joke and will be even more so for even longer.

    As for Donald, he should be very careful what stones he chooses to toss considering who he brought with him to his security briefing. Hey, Donald! When will Melania give her immigration press conference?

      Failin's mother has a big bloody boo boo. She does not want the lamestream media to break the news or make reports like they tried to do with another family boo boo.

      Or all the times she tried to get out of Wasilla to be with Trump. The lamestream media broke and owned her stories when she was sent home due to screwed up family values.

      What does Grandma Failin do with her current breaking news?

      Grandma Failin breaks the news herself. All alone and no one else in sight. Grandma Failin has no support or help, not one person that cares. She is on her own and all alone.

      You would think Pistol Failin would be with her mother and trying to be supportive of someone with a head injury who is a public babbler, known to drunk babble.

      Grandma Failin could have a concussion.

      Pistol Failin and her bff, trained to kill, are too busy having fun and posing with beer and others from the DNA (substance abuse) family.

      Why are they hiding from Grandma's breaking news? Where are the reports from the doctors so the concerned fans know it is not a concussion? What would a family values family do to protect a Grandma that is so out of shape and out of it?
