And now, presenting People magazine’s most interesting person of the week: Anthony Weiner. Weiner has decided to make a public splash. Interviewed for the July 30th issue, Weiner apparently thinks he can wave his magic wand and make the public forget his past behavior, saying disingenuously, “I can’t say absolutely that I will never run for public office again, but I’m very happy in my present life. I’m not doing anything to plan a campaign.”
In the interview, Weiner said he’s turned over a new leaf, saying:
“I really do feel like a very, very different person.”
It’s a little creepy to know what Weiner is feeling.
“I have enormous regrets about what I put Huma through, how I let my constituents down.”
Presumably, “constituents” is a new euphemism.
“But it’s not like I sit all day replaying it in my mind.”
It was only a tweet, not a video, so he’s safe.
Huma Abedin, Weiner’s wife, wanted to make sure her husband’s career could be resurrected:
“I’m proud to be married to him. My husband did a really stupid thing. It was an extremely painful time. It took a lot of work to get where we are today, but I want people to know we’re a normal family.”
Just a normal pervert and his wife with family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Weiner has the cash to run for office. He raised some $4.5 million for a 2013 mayoral run before the scandal cost him his career.
