Trouble is brewing in the Clinton/Weiner sexcapade paradise.
A report by Fred Dicker at the New York Post indicates that the Clintons are none too pleased that Huma and Anthony are trying to play off of Hillary’s response to her husband’s own infidelities. Not because Hillary has turned a corner on the whole ‘stand by your man routine’, but rather, because the Clinton’s believe the Weiners are beneath them.
“The Clintons are upset with the comparisons that the Weiners seem to be encouraging — that Huma is ‘standing by her man’ the way Hillary did with Bill, which is not what she in fact did,’’ said a top state Democrat.
Weiner and his campaign aides have explicitly referred to the Clintons as they privately seek to convince skeptical Democrats that voters can back Weiner despite his online sexual antics — just as they supported then-President Bill Clinton in the face of repeated allegations of marital betrayals.
“The Clintons are pissed off that Weiner’s campaign is saying that Huma is just like Hillary,’’ said the source. “How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.”
Got that, Huma? Hillary has accomplished things. You are Barney to her Fred. Patrick to her Spongebob. You are Goose to her Maverick.
Okay, sorry about the Top Gun reference.
Anyway, not that I’m in the business of defending the faux sex addict sociopath in Anthony Weiner, but methinks the Clintons are missing the larger point.
The Weiner scandal does not equate because, as odd as his behavior has been, to my knowledge Weiner has not had an affair that involved physical touching.
Hillary, your husband was banging interns in the Oval Office. He had multiple real-world affairs over many, many years.
Weiner’s actions are deplorable, but there are certainly differing degrees of infidelity, just as there are different degrees for various crimes.
Instead of looking for justification through other sex scandals, Anthony and Huma should drop from the race and fix their behaviors from within.
And the Clintons, rather than diverting attention to the accomplishments of Hillary, should accept the fact that Slick Willy’s deviant behavior was far worse and effected many more people. He left the entire nation open to blackmail scenarios.
Neither one of these couples should be casting stones in anybody’s direction.
