Topic - Huma Abedin
Former Rep. Anthony Weiner who recently failed in his New York City mayoral bid after an elongated sexting scandal said his ensuing marriage problems don't hit him as hard in the heart as they do his wife, Huma Abedin.
In yet another sign of what Democratic Party faithfuls are pushing as the inevitable, Hillary Rodham Clinton was introduced at a public event earlier this week — by a former Mitt Romney voter, no less — as the next leader of the free world.
Apparently, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has softened her stance on aide Huma Abedin, relenting on a weeks-ago pledge to cut her loose from her assistant role — as well as any future White House campaign run — if she didn't dump her scandal-plagued and failed-mayoral-bidding husband, Anthony Weiner.
Huma Abedin, a top staffer for Hillary Clinton and the wife of beleaguered and scandalized Anthony Weiner, was told to give her husband the boot — or leave the Clinton camp.
"Anti government ideologues," "wolf in wolf's clothing," "legislative arsonists," "totally irresponsible, completely juvenile," "destructive." And so goes House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's assorted descriptions of some Republicans or Republican activities, uttered by the California Democrat in a single interview with CNN on Sunday.
A slow August in political news has created a vacuum that the press and pundits are filling with Clinton-watch: the guessing game as to whether Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for president in 2016, when she might announce and what effect her proto-campaign is having on President Obama's ability to govern.
Anthony Weiner acknowledged Monday that his sexting scandals have hurt his wife both personally and professionally — and then he turned around and let slip a statement that could hamper her career once again.
She's been keeping a low profile, but Republicans say Hillary Rodham Clinton's potential presidential ambitions can only be hurt by the heavily covered recent stories involving her scandal-plagued friend Anthony D. Weiner's sexcapades in New York and her close confidant Terry McAuliffe's tangles with federal regulators over a former business enterprise.
Democrats launched the "war on women," but they didn't first sweep their side of the battlefield for land mines. Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner have dominated the headlines for their atrocious disrespect and sexual harassment of women. Yet the Democratic leadership is hiding in a foxhole.
Hillary Clinton has lived her life in a soap opera, and now NBC will make one about her. The writers of NBC's projected four-part miniseries have lots to work with.
Anthony Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, is due to take a lengthy vacation from her job with former first lady Hillary Clinton in August, and campaign officials for her husband's mayoral race have rushed to explain that the time off is not a "leave of absence."
Anthony D. Weiner, former New York Democratic representative and current New York City mayoral candidate, has been a huge embarrassment to the American political process.
Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton reportedly are angry over efforts by Anthony Weiner's New York mayoral campaign to compare Mr. Weiner's Internet affairs and his wife, Huma Abedin, to the Clintons' White House scandal in 1998.
New York City mayoral candidate Anthony D. Weiner and President Obama have several things in common ("Weiner should bow out of N.Y. mayor's race," Web, July 26). Both are Democratic politicians, and both have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood — Mr. Weiner through the family of his wife, Huma Abedin, and Mr. Obama through his open political support of now-deposed Egyptian leader Mohammed Morsi. Both men are popular with people who are Democratic supporters, and both are malicious, narcissistic liars who have shown themselves to be one-trick ponies. We have seen these men for who they are — and they do not get better with time.
Embattled candidate Anthony D. Weiner faced mounting pressure Sunday to reconsider his mayoral ambitions in New York City after he confessed last week to swapping illicit messages and photos with women on s social media — a practice he now admits continued even after he resigned from Congress in 2011 because of similar acts.
she said that staying in the race is the best decision for their son, for Mr. Weiner and for her.
Now Ms. Abedin is stepping forward to say she stands by him — though The New York Post described her press conference as awkward, reporting she stood several feet from her husband.
