Like a heroin addict desperately shooting up whatever he can find to get high again, the MSM has mainlined the story of Huma Abedin finally divorcing her emotionally deranged husband, former congressman Anthony Weiner as being all about Hillary.
The propagandized meme from the MSM is that “this hurts Hillary” and “this throws Hillary off message”.
No, you in the MSM are throwing Hillary off message over the separation of a married couple that doesn’t include Hillary.
Note to MSM: Hillary is not married to Anthony Weiner. Despite twice-divorced (and counting) Donald Trump’s disgusting and ham handed attempt to portray the separation as a failure of Hillary’s and in some crazed way, connected to “our enemies” getting top secret information, Hillary did not arrange the marriage of Huma to Weiner nor is she personally responsible for anyone else’s marriage.
It would absolutely be fair game to criticize Hillary if Huma had been the one making insanely self-destructive decisions to be sexting with men outside of her marriage after being caught at it before. After all, this is a close aide of Hillary’s and if she reflected that she had deep psychological problems and could be compromised by strangers, it would be pertinent. However, when the messed up person is the spouse of the person you employ it has nothing to do with you. Employers don’t supervise the marriages of their employees and take responsibility for them, in what reality does that happen?
The real story here is that Huma and Weiner are the only ones responsible for their marriage and Hillary is being slimed by the MSM as if she has to bear some kind of responsibility for it. This is a desperate attempt by the MSM to fabricate a scandal and an anti-Hillary meme to further their goal of trying to manipulate the race into being closer and increasing their viewership due to that.
An unfortunate possibility is that despite the humiliation Weiner subjected Huma to after the first time he sexted and had to resign, there may have been at least some influence for her to stay with him for political purposes, so she didn’t look she was instantly abandoning her husband which the MSM might use to attack her employer, Hillary Clinton (who could imagine they’d do such a thing!). No one can blame Huma for finally splitting up with Weiner but politics and the unfair threat that the MSM poses may have had at least some influence on this decision of hers to do so.
After this latest sexual betrayal and stupidness by Weiner, he would be a permanent albatross around Huma’s neck for the rest of the campaign and as we see, used to undermine Hillary. The Repubs have already tried to use Weiner as a reminder of Bill Clinton’s proclivities, they would have that link as a greater tool to use to hammer Hillary on her judgement (“She surrounds herself with sex addicts!”). He had to go if Huma wanted to continue as Hillary’s closest aide. At the same time, how could this not be a last straw for any self-respecting wife? So, not saying that the primary reason for Huma’s decision is political, just that it had to be an additional consideration when she made up her mind.
What was far too predictable is that Weiner may have been “catfished” by a Trump/Republican operative into sexting. The background on the recipient of the sexts is a bit murky today, some saying it was a Republican man pretending to be a woman while another report said it was a woman. In both cases though, it’s been reported that the recipient was a Trump supporter.
Weiner is pretty remarkably dumb. When your wife is the likely future President’s right hand woman, you might imagine that an anonymous person you’ve never met who showers you with all the ego-gratification you could hope for and asks you for pictures of yourself in your underwear just might not be doing all of that because they actually have fallen helplessly in love with an unattractive loser. They might just be con artists trying to use your fragile male ego to humiliate you and undermine the presidential candidate your wife works for. How could anyone not be on guard for that? Only a fool and that’s Weiner all over.
While all of this is Weiner’s fault and only Weiner’s fault, Hillary’s campaign now has to respond as if they have to defend themselves over this…and thanks to the Weiner-like needy MSM, they do.
Hey MSM, I know it’s a slow news day so far and you’re just a shallow, money-making industry for amoral corporations but try to at least maintain a facade of having a shred of decency and let a woman dealing with a painful, personal issue with her marriage…that has been blown up all over the nation…have a little peace and privacy on a matter that has absolutely nothing to do with her boss, who is not married to her.
