Open thread: Carlos Danger to hold press conference at 5 p.m.

posted at 4:41 pm on July 23, 2013 by Allahpundit

In a better world, Andrew Breitbart would be there live on the scene, preparing to step to the podium and run this show. In the world we live in, we’ll have to settle for this squirrelly little horndog once again fielding embarrassing media questions about his sexual psychodrama.

Two reasons to tune into cable news and watch. One: If 2011 was any indication, this guy’s willingness to lie desperately in hopes that he can make the story go away is almost inexhaustible, even if he has reason to think some of those lies will be exposed. E.g., the mystery woman who was sexting with him probably has more damning stuff that she’s preparing to reveal. Will Weiner admit to everything up front right now, so that none of it’s a surprise later, or will he dissemble in hopes that he won’t get caught? A rational man would do the former, but we’re not necessarily dealing with a rational man here. Two: There is, I think, at least a slight chance that Weiner’s going to, er, pull out. Maybe the mystery woman has something so embarrassing on him that there’s simply no way to keep it from being a huge humiliating distraction to his campaign, even if it turns out that this all happened before the scandal was exposed in 2011. Or, maybe Huma’s simply had enough and demanded that he pull the plug. High drama, coming right up.

Exit question via Ace: Does Weiner really know people at Politico who’d be willing to hire his mistress, or is that Carlos Danger, international man of intrigue, blowing smoke to impress her?

Update: NBC has a livestream.

Update: Oof.

New York City can’t seriously be this stupid, can they?

Doughboy on July 23, 2013 at 5:47 PM

You know what’s funny? In movies and on TV, New Yorkers are protrayed as smart, hip, saavy, can see through any BS…. Ha Ha Ha…

SailorMark on July 23, 2013 at 5:51 PM

New York City can’t seriously be this stupid, can they? Even if they refuse to vote for someone who isn’t a Dem, there’s gotta be someone there they can go with instead of this guy.

Doughboy on July 23, 2013 at 5:47 PM

After Mayor Dinkins, I thought the city might have learned something. Even Mayor Bloomberg, as abysmal and awful as he is, isn’t as bad as Weiner. That being said, far too many of the lemmings here would still (even now) elect this degenerate as NYC’s mayor. It makes living here very trying.

Throat Wobbler Mangrove on July 23, 2013 at 5:51 PM

Well, today is National Hot dog Day…

annoyinglittletwerp on July 23, 2013 at 5:14 PM

Bad timing on my part. I’m on a liquid diet preparing for a colonoscopy tomorrow. Getting it done while I still have insurance that I like…

Is his wife’s name Humma Weiner?

jaime on July 23, 2013 at 5:52 PM

Wonder if the fembots know about Sharia?

true. All they really are is LOUD.

kirkill on July 23, 2013 at 5:53 PM

Just thinking:

Any way to get Phil McGraw and these two to do a say 2 hour special tell all and Phil can say, wow, and I missed my chance messing with those little “tell all sessions I ran out of Wichita Falls Texas back in the day”. “You” sessions at Motels down Dallas way.

Gage match at the end, Pay TV, millions…..

APACHEWHOKNOWS on July 23, 2013 at 5:57 PM

Carlos Danger, you say?

Any relation to Nick?

Del Dolemonte on July 23, 2013 at 5:57 PM

this is funny but it’s also pretty sad. these two set a bad example for people.

there will be some men out there who watch this and they will be under the impression that it’s totally fine and okay to cheat on their wife as much as they want, as long as they say “sorry, it’s behind me, let’s move forward.” then everything is suddenly okay. and there are some women out there who will look at huma and think that if their husband cheats on them, the husband should be very quickly and easily forgiven with a simple “sorry, let’s put it behind us.”

Sachiko on July 23, 2013 at 5:59 PM

Any relation to Nick?

Nick Danger, Third Eye.

I’d say it’s possible.

either orr on July 23, 2013 at 5:59 PM

Any relation to Harvey Danger?

jaime on July 23, 2013 at 6:00 PM

Mr. Danger: “I’m not sick, but I’m not well.”

jaime on July 23, 2013 at 6:01 PM

Obama needs to make a talk on this, we poor dumb Americans need to know how the smart elite Democrats understand this sick a” sh” so much better than us conservatives.

APACHEWHOKNOWS on July 23, 2013 at 6:03 PM

As the late Johnnie Cochran might say:

“If it doesn’t fit
…dayum, Weiner!!”

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on July 23, 2013 at 6:04 PM

Damn I miss Breitbart.

Abby Adams on July 23, 2013 at 4:47 PM

Me too. Imagine how different the 2012 elections would have been with that force of nature still around. And more importantly, hope his family is getting along OK.

inviolet on July 23, 2013 at 6:04 PM

so, this guy lies out of all his crap and the msm enables it all good.

so, the commie Democrats, the RINO’s, and the Google/Microsoft need for wage slaves is lied as a good thing “amnesty/Dreamers” and the msm enables, so the U.S. circles the drain pipe faster and faster every day.

APACHEWHOKNOWS on July 23, 2013 at 6:07 PM

Now imagine this maskirovka of a man standing in front of a microphone, with the smoldering ruin of some part of Manhattan in the background, urging everyone to remain calm.

I don’t see it.

BobMbx on July 23, 2013 at 6:08 PM

Mr. Danger: “I’m not sick, but I’m not well.”

jaime on July 23, 2013 at 6:01 PM

Didn’t watch, but, is this the entire takeaway ??
Still running, etc ?
What an absolute a$$.

pambi on July 23, 2013 at 6:09 PM

As Shakespere might say:

He who hide the sausage forsooth
aft penny paid for tryst thus earned
be said and ere seen as “Spitzer”

Knave who showeth the sausage
aft forsworn and forewarned to not
Go to, “Weiner”! Go to and be skunk

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on July 23, 2013 at 6:11 PM

Weinergate 2.0

I was in Peru when the last one hit and I was disappointed that I got to miss the show. Thanks Anthony! :D

This needs a sequel too

NerwenAldarion on July 23, 2013 at 6:11 PM

These people are wearing me down. Where does this lead? Someday – will people be accepting of pedophiles?? It seems that nothing, NOTHING is wrong or immoral anymore.

Weiner Filner Spitzer

Wherever do you guys find such interesting names for these scandals?

Christien on July 23, 2013 at 6:14 PM

As Sigmund Freud might say:

Did your mother beat you?
Well, she should have.

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on July 23, 2013 at 6:14 PM

Humma Danger was standing right there which tells me this is as much a sham marriage as the Clintons or the rat-eared mullato and his shaved Yeti spouse.

This crap supposedly was from just last summer, 2012, long after the bastard left Congress. After his child was born. He says this crap is behind him.

Where is the GOP’s mayoral candidate? Because the GOP doesn’t really have to field a candidate. Weiner beats himself.

Happy Nomad on July 23, 2013 at 6:15 PM

pambi on July 23, 2013 at 6:09 PM

Yeah, that’s what I took away from it.

He said that he continued to do it after his resignation from congress, but he hasn’t done it recently.

jaime on July 23, 2013 at 6:17 PM

Old and Busted: Hizzoner

djl130 on July 23, 2013 at 6:12 PM

Hey! Get out of church lady mode! Who are you to judge what Humma and Carlos do in their private lives? It is almost as if you expect those aspiring to elective office to have principles. How weird you must be. /

Happy Nomad on July 23, 2013 at 6:20 PM

…idly wondering who might be the real father of Huma’s baby…

ElectricPhase on July 23, 2013 at 6:21 PM

He said that he continued to do it after his resignation from congress, but he hasn’t done it recently.

jaime on July 23, 2013 at 6:17 PM

Post Clinton era politics. He hasn’t done it recently means he hasn’t hit on some random woman since lunchtime.

Happy Nomad on July 23, 2013 at 6:22 PM

As Groucho might say:

He thinks two heads are better than one? Let the zombie brain-eaters get him foist.

ElectricPhase on July 23, 2013 at 6:27 PM

Good lookin wife, newborn baby…running for political office of the *most* high profile city in the country…

Pictures of *Little* Weiner again posted…blatant Quid Pro Quo to a (hahahah) non-partisan political blog.

Yep! He’s all checked off on the Asshat of the Year checklist….why NOT make him Mayor?

Next time, dim bulb, make your pseudonym “Carlos Kennedy” and you could run for Mayor of Boston…and win.

BlaxPac on July 23, 2013 at 6:31 PM

People article showing Anthony and Huma cuddling newborn: 7/19.

“Carlos Danger” hits on 22 year-old stranger: 7/12

.

Yeah, this is behind the Danger family. Carlos is cured of his sexual indiscretions.

Happy Nomad on July 23, 2013 at 6:32 PM

As a top aide to Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, I really expected Huma to sound smarter than she did today.

Do New Yorkers really think Huma is smart enough to be the First Lady of New York City?

Raise your standards NYC or lose any respect your fellow Americans may have had for you.

LoL – what respect?

jaime on July 23, 2013 at 6:41 PM

Carlos Danger. Just another White Hispanic, I suppose.

TXUS on July 23, 2013 at 6:46 PM

wren on July 23, 2013 at 6:36 PM

Mayor of Boston? (Thomas “Mumbles” Menino)… Detriot? (Kwame Kilpatrick)…New York City (Mike “Nanny” Bloomberg)?

Former Mayors of New Orleans? (Ray Nagin) Washington DC? (Marion Barry)

Some Cities shouldn’t be *too* smug, knowwhatImean?

Anthony Weiner: “Give me another chance”
****************************************

As predicted by Anthony Weiner himself, the sex scandal that led to his 2011 resignation from Congress would become an issue during his mayoral campaign. And a series of lewd texts and photos revealed Tuesday has forced Weiner to ask New Yorkers to “give him another chance.”

I wish he’d just go away and maybe just be a stay at home dad or something.

scalleywag on July 23, 2013 at 8:49 PM

Maybe he could take up whittling.
