Oh boy: Weiner’s wife is pregnant

posted at 6:03 pm on June 8, 2011 by Allahpundit

…Congratulations?

Ms. Abedin, 35, is in the early stages of pregnancy, according to three people with knowledge of the situation.

The pregnancy, which the couple has disclosed to close friends and family, adds a new dimension to questions about the future of their marriage.

Mr. Weiner, 46, who has admitted to engaging in salacious online conversations with at least six women over the last few years, has declared that he and his wife have no intention of splitting up, even though some of the exchanges occurred during their marriage.

Ace thinks Weiner’s going to try to leverage the news for some sympathy too by attributing his bulge-tweeting to “Sudden Responsibility Shock Syndrome” or whatever, and I admit, when I heard the news, I wasn’t sure if it would make people angrier at him or would actually force them to ease up in hopes of not making this any harder on his wife. Check out the insta-reaction from devout lefty Joan Walsh, though. And if that’s not enough of an indicator, just wait a day or so until this utterly devastating account of Weiner’s deceit by Kirsten Powers starts circulating online. I think it’s the single most brutal takedown of him I’ve read, notwithstanding more than 10 days of saturation coverage of Weinergate. Do the words “extensive and sociopathic lying” mean anything to you?

[H]e was a friend whom I cared for very much, even if I thought he had issues with he needed to deal with. It was because of this friendship that I believed him when he told me last week that he had done nothing wrong. In an email to me he wrote: “Why not to call the cops: Personal account, no federal case, we don’t know yet what they got, I didn’t send it, statements on sat, sun, monday, the girl said she doesn’t know me, I don’t know her. The people I follow are all people who ask. We’ve hired a law firm but not to protect me, to put together the team to figure out how we prevent and maybe civil or criminal next steps. We don’t know where this photo came from. We have theories. Until we know for sure we open up legal hornets nest if we say.”

He knew I was going on the show Hannity, where I would use this false information to defend him in front of millions of people. I did, and I regret it. The previous day I had reluctantly done an interview with the New York Post at his request to talk about what kind of boyfriend he was. In that story I didn’t address the controversy but talked about my experiences with him. Nonetheless, my friends were furious when the real information came out and they realized he had allowed me to become involved in his sordid controversy. I just felt sorry for him and his wife…

But there is lying, and then there is what Weiner did. Due to nonstop meetings, I had not had time to watch his media blitz prior to my Greta interview and was slack jawed when I saw clips of him the next day sneering and pointing fingers at other people for what he knew he had done. I am of the general view that politicians are not the most honest group of people, but what I saw in those interviews was deeply disturbing even using that very low standard. There is no way anyone can ever believe anything he says again after that. In fact, I highly doubt that what he said in his press conference is even true.

That’s just the beginning; wait until she gets going on the now-infamous sexting transcript that Radar published. As I write this, I’m already seeing rumors circulating on Twitter that he’ll resign before the night is out. I do think he’s finished now, but whether the axe falls this evening or in the next few days, I don’t know. While we wait for news, here’s Ed Schultz from last night trying to convince three other liberals that yes, this is a big deal, and yes, Weiner needs to go. Anyone think our panelists here have a different view today in light of the news about Mrs. Weiner?

Why would a dyed in the wool liberal keep at it? What purpose would that possibly serve?

Like most moderates, you have bile only for conservatives.

And just when does it all stop? If a person conducts themselves inappropriately such as Foley or Weiner they should leave. period. It is an integrity thing not a party thing.

The equivalence is in the disguisting, partisan, ridiculous comments blaming Weiners wife for his actions.

That’s what.

Unlike you and your little troll friends here, some Conservatives have the decency to know when to stop as well as knowing where to place blame. So you can take your comments and shove them up your own backside.

Bradky on June 8, 2011 at 11:30 PM

Well, it’s been over a week and we’re still waiting on the Dems to do just that. Reluctantly, it looks as if they are just beginning to.

Keep in mind, much of the reason the story snowballs is that the perv tries to tough it out. If Weiner had done the right thing early on, the wall to wall coverage probably would never have happened (cf the Chris Lee story which was over before most people even heard it happened). Even as it was, the big networks were reluctant to pick up the story until the third or fourth day.

Missy on June 8, 2011 at 11:34 PM

Indeed.

I really shouldn’t have to point out that such an attitude is about as counterproductive as you could muster.

If abortion is murder, then why isn’t the joke equivalent to joking about the murder of that child, hm? I would sincerely hope that such a joke would elicit a bit more of a reaction.

I’m also wondering if you think only some people (like you)are allowed to comment about the family of folks in the news. You have quite a bit of history with that yourself.

Roy, I guarantee you neither You-Eh-Vee or MadCon are trolls or less than Conservative. They just don’t think anyone else is allowed to talk trash as venomously as them.

I think any conjecture about whether Weiner’s wife would have kept her child or not was probably over the top. It’s the kind of fodder trolls love to repost on lib sites. But much worse has been said on these threads. I think sometimes if someone points out one of your comments, you should probably at least consider if there was anything to it. I do understand that who the critiques were coming from was groan-worthy.

Roy Rogers on June 9, 2011 at 1:03 AM

just wait a day or so until this utterly devastating account of Weiner’s deceit by Kirsten Powers starts circulating online.

Great! A liberal preaching morals on truth and lies, this should be good.

Yes, he lied, I acknowledged, but everyone lies in sex scandals. This is my general view of sex scandals. But there is lying and then there is what Weiner did.

Here the liberal acknowledges having no standards about telling lies, dismissed away with the vapid “everyone does it” defense. So what did Weiner do? he lied to Kirsten Powers. The thinking is: It’s one thing to lie to everyone else but quite another to lie to me, there is lying and then there is lying to Kirsten Powers, right? It really only takes 2 sentences to get her to admit she is a card carrying member of the ‘me’ generation who can’t view an issue as a moral one unless she is a victim herself.

It’s about having some sort of standard for what the Democratic Party stands for—especially regarding treating women with dignity and respect—and Congressman Weiner has fallen far short of even the low standard to which we generally hold our elected officials. It’s time for him to go.

Isn’t it funny how she whines about the Democratic party’s lack of standards after she has proven in print she has none herself just a few sentences earlier? What is even more amazing is her use of the word “we” as if everyone holds the same low standards for our elected officials as she does. Way to go Kirsten!! Stand up and keep your party pure and take revenge on the skanky guy who once dared to dump you at the same time!

So, you don’t get to set additional requirement like me needing to find comments about her husband or trig. I said you used course language to describe her and her family. That was a nice try though.

So, here’s a few to start about Palin’s daughter Bristol. I’ll, unlike you, state I cut down large comments for space.
Review your interaction in a thread about Bristol Palin breaking up with Levi. For someone who thinks the families are off limits, you jumped right in and gave your adult opinion here …

Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

It’s too much. Really, it’s too much.

You-Eh-Vee on August 3, 2010 at 5:10 PM

For a lot of the thread you go on about what sh1t smells like. (Big Hot Air moment there)

There never was a need to scrounge… but your sort always do, don’t you?

sharrukin on August 3, 2010 at 10:59 PM

Lol.

That`s right. Keep up the with the tasty ad hominems and completely ignore the facts.

Bristol was never a spokesperson for Teen Abstinence who then got knocked up.

Bristol never approached the tabloid.

Bristol never had a front page photo on US weekly.

Bristol never gave the interview behind her mothers back.

Eurasia isn`t at war with Oceania.

You-Eh-Vee on August 3, 2010 at 11:36 PM

Let’s see, how old was she here? And really, the point was that you hate Palin and were just attacking her daughter over the point she was in a magazine. Great Hot Air moments there too. But Palin’s kids have nothing to do with you hating her, right?

hawkdriver on June 9, 2011 at 7:19 AM

So you DO just get kicks by hitting the Palin threads to throw poo at Palinistas. Man, you need something else to occupy your time. Creeeeeeepy.

ddrintn on August 4, 2010 at 4:39 PM

What ‘poo’ am I flinging exactly?

Oh yeah, pointing out the cold facts of this story automatically makes me a troll. My bad.

Seems to me that you guys are the ones calling people traitors, shouting “Stop following that ignorant Whore of Babylon chillbilly, bless God Hallelujah!” and getting all…weird.

But we already knew that.

Creeeeeeepy

Lol.

Looks like me previous remark hit home.

Cheers.

You-Eh-Vee on August 4, 2010 at 4:47 PM

Great way here to call Palin what you’re really thinking and acting like you’re attributing it to someone else. But hey, there’s lots more. Off to work, would you like to see where your comments are violent and you call people “retards”? Or isn’t that over the top when you say it?

hawkdriver on June 9, 2011 at 7:22 AM

Hawkdriver, wtf is going on here? Weiner’s wife is pregnant and now this has turned into a Bristol thread? Why am I not surprised?

Hey trolls: Sunshine is the best disinfectant. If I were you I’d stay away from someone who can kick your arses, especially in person. And I am not writing about me. Back off from Bristol-girl’s got enough going on already. This is not a Palin thread. And back off from hawkdriver-he deserves a lot of respect and I was worried when he was not here in HA. Now he’s back and he deserves a “thank you” from you weasles.

Well that happens when our troops go to defend the hatred you feel against one another. Go to HuffPo or Salon, KosKids will embrace your hatred. If you’re gonna stick around here have some respect and write on what’s going on on YOUR end, not on the Republican’s.

ProudPalinFan on June 9, 2011 at 7:35 AM

You-Eh-Vee,

When I consider the course language you’ve used over time to describe Palin and her family, I’m wondering exactly what you think is now over the top. I’m also wondering if you think only some people (like you)are allowed to comment about the family of folks in the news. You have quite a bit of history with that yourself.

hawkdriver on June 9, 2011 at 12:24 AM

Don’t be silly. You know those chillbillies are ALWAYS fair game, don’tcha?

or to Weiner’s discomfiture at getting caught?

Don’t pretend that was ever the issue here. I’m talking about comments blaming/mocking/attacking his wife for his unfaithfulness.

You-Eh-Vee on June 9, 2011 at 12:21 AM

“Countless comments on other threads relating to the subject”? I don’t see many more having to do with his wife’s pregnancy.

pseudoforce on June 9, 2011 at 7:55 AM

Advice to YouMa opps, Huma Weiner, being and class one liberal and married to one just Google ‘Planned Parenthood Queens NY’. Huma you married to a perv you get the shaft. Get out and away from him.

Wade on June 9, 2011 at 8:50 AM

Oh boy: Weiner’s wife is pregnant

Pop goes the weasel.

petefrt on June 9, 2011 at 9:13 AM

I agree with John on Powerline Blog. Weiner should stay for a hundred years and become the face of the democrat party.

abcurtis on June 9, 2011 at 9:33 AM

These reports are still unsourced and I am still a little disbelieving.

I don’t want to turn into Mr. Sullivan, but she was thin enough at her marriage to snap in half. Women that thin often don’t menstruate, let alone ovulate, and I know whereof I speak. I’ve been there, I’m not being bratty.

A few pounds of fat or so would make the difference so I might be wrong to have doubts.

However, she’s in her mid thirties and at her age it’s dangerous to announce before 12 weeks.

Roy Rogers on June 9, 2011 at 10:03 AM

Um…do you not understand the meaning of “implicit”?

MadisonConservative on June 8, 2011 at 11:49 PM

I understand that you’re standing on the sidelines admonishing others for not doing something you should do yourself.

Think what you like, it doesn’t change the fact that you don’t confront Roy Rogers but complain that no one else does.

It’s not just Roy Rogers, and the comments had been up for hours, and I had not been here. When I showed up, I made my statement, which implicitly denounced such comments, as did others I made. But keep on grasping.

MadisonConservative on June 9, 2011 at 11:20 AM

He thought he was an Oscar-liar Weiner…but he was only a Tony.

MadisonConservative on June 9, 2011 at 11:20 AM

I’m not gasping, you’re backpedaling. You specifically pointed to Roy Rogers; Remember?

I must agree, although Roy Rogers has been acting like a cretin all day. That said…the fact that people aren’t calling him out for joking about the abortion of a child of a political opponent is appalling and nauseating.

MadisonConservative on June 8, 2011 at 11:41 PM

I’m just pointing out that instead of relying on others to quell your emotions; do it yourself.

mizflame98 on June 9, 2011 at 11:29 AM

Mrs. Weiner has hung around Hillary Clinton for a very long time, serving Hillary as an intern years ago, and now working in the State Department, travelling with Hillary, the person who was entitled to be president of the United States of America, the person whose grip Barack Hussein Obama II Barry Soetoro and his brain dead worshippers ripped the dream from.

Mrs. Weiner and Hillary are, and have been, joined at the hip for years.

Maybe, instead of being with Mr. Loudmouth Tweeter, making it impossible for her to become pregnant by him, except through FedEx, perhaps there is another story here regarding Mrs. Weiner.

Perhaps Anthony the Loud Mouth Weiner is not the father.

Perhaps Hillary, the person Mrs. Weiner is with virtually 24/7 for years now, is the father. (grin)

William2006 on June 9, 2011 at 11:37 AM

I was not joking.

I was asking if liberals like Weiner and Huma consider the pregnancy a human baby with all the civil rights entitled, or is it a “clump of cells” as pro-choicers just like them constantly espouse (I posted Weiner’s pro-choice record).

AND, if a human baby, was this determination made at conception, after first trimester, because it’s politically advantageous, or never.

This caused MadCon to lose her mind.

Roy Rogers on June 9, 2011 at 11:37 AM

Who’s the daddy?

stenwin77 on June 8, 2011 at 6:06 PM

Hillary

Sorry hun. This is what happens when you

Besides being a good lib surely you have an abortion

Over the line.

SO IS THIS:

I hope he loses his job, has a daughter, and she grows up to meet a jackass —just like ol’ dad.

ted c on June 8, 2011 at 6:12 PM

The fact that Weiner is a jerk, should not be taken out on his wife, or his unborn child. Remarks like that have no place on this site.

Susanboo on June 9, 2011 at 2:36 PM

blink on June 9, 2011 at 10:53 AM

blink, quite a few people made comments that it was over the line. My only problem was the hypocrisy of those demanding more. There are threads You-Eh-Vee posts comments on I wouldn’t let my family read.

And what is the required number of people “required” to bust on someone they think has made an unsavory comment. I alway thought if someone at least said something, that was enough. So, what is the proper number of comments? You guys don’t think one is. Is two enough? Is three too many and taking the thread OT?

hawkdriver on June 9, 2011 at 5:42 PM

ProudPalinFan on June 9, 2011 at 7:35 AM

I appreciate that PPF, but I posted the old comments about Palin, not them. I made a comment that You-Eh-Vee certainly didn’t leave public figures families out of his rants and just posted some examples. Also he said that folks here were making Hot Air look bad because of the rhetoric. It made me laugh considering the comments he’s made over the years. But, I’m as responsible for the thread going off topic beyond repair as anyone.

hawkdriver on June 9, 2011 at 5:51 PM

Not much else to add is there, You-Eh-Vee.
