That after the former congressman was caught yet again playing the Package Card. You have to wonder what’s going through this guy’s head?
He has to feel like the perv who knocks on the door of his intended Internet love interest only to have “To Catch a Predator” host Chris Hanson answer…a second time.
How’s that possible?
Not a good day for Carlos Danger.
What makes a guy do something like this over and over when he has so much to lose?
You know, a beautiful young (but apparently stupid) wife, a new baby, the prospects of getting a kickass job. Allow me to suggest a few possibilities.
His dad was a lawyer, his mom a math teacher. Little Anthony was a bright kid by all accounts and scored high enough on aptitude tests to allow him entry into the prestigious Brooklyn Technical High School, ranked in the Top 50 in the US.
Brooklyn Tech specializes in math and science, kind of a Geek University.
Speaking of which, one could easily conjure the image of Weiner as the resident band nerd. A smart, quirky kid, who was likely teased and pushed around by his classmates. The kid who initially aspired to be a TV weatherman.
Face it, elementary and middle school kids can be pretty cruel, especially if you have a name like WEINER.
After getting a BA in Poly Sci in 1985, Weiner joined the staff of then Congressman and now Senator Chuck Schumer. Schumer encouraged Weiner to run for local office, to get a feel for political life and he won a seat on the City Council and later Congress.
It was in politics Weiner got his first taste of power. His opinion mattered, people wanted his vote. Like Steve Martin in The Jerk, the new phone books came out and Weiner WAS SOMEBODY!
All of that ended with his resignation in June 2011 after Weiner sent promo pics of his package to some errant constituents.
Prior to his downfall, Weiner’s positions won him priviledge and power previously unavailable to a high school geek. He became somebody. He was able to step outside his league and marry Huma Abedin, a stunningly gorgeous woman of Muslim descent.
Spin the hands of the clock to Tuesday of this week and there’s Weiner on national television again getting spanked. Forcing his wife to make the trip to the mic explaining how she’s going to stick it out.
And where did Huma learn how to do this?
One word; Hillary.
She’s learned a lot from her years with Hillary and they’ve become inseparable.
But is there more to this story?
I have a friend in the State Department who tells me it’s been a widespread rumor that Huma and Hillary have had their own little thing going on for years. I had no idea.
But Google “Huma Hillary Affair” and you get 177,000 hits. More if you narrow down your search terms.
I’m not saying where there’s smoke there’s fire, but that’s sure a lot of hits.
Huma’s taken some heat over her family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
She’s stepped back lately and taken a different role with Hillary. More as a consultant, but she still lives in a $700K condo. Not a bad gig. Hundreds of photos are available of her fawning over Hillary and my sources say if aids call Hillary early or late, its Huma who answers.
So is there more to Weinergate than meets the eye?
Gennifer Flowers, Bill Clinton’s one time love interest wrote a book, “Passion and Betrayal.” Flip to page 42 and let’s read together a conversation Gennifer allegedly had with Bill:
There’s something you need to know. I’ve been hearing tales around town that Hillary is having another thing with a woman.” I watched his face to see his reaction, and couldn’t believe it when he burst out laughing. I was stunned! I asked him what was so funny. “Honey,” he said, “she’s probably eaten more p**** than I have.” Bill said he had known for a long time that Hillary was attracted to women, and it didn’t really bother him anymore.”
Now what kind of picture do we start to get of Weiner and Huma?
Could all of this somehow explain Carlos Danger?
I mean, it doesn’t change the fact Weiner’s a dirt bag, but who knows what choices people sometimes make?
