Page Six: Clintons won’t support Weiner in mayoral bid

posted at 1:33 pm on May 13, 2013 by

Will this kill our chances for all sorts of double-entendre jokes over the next few months?  If true, it’s certainly going to raise questions about Anthony Weiner’s ability to attract support — if even his wife’s closest friends aren’t getting on board:

Bill and Hillary Clinton will not support Anthony Weiner in his dream of becoming mayor even though they love his wife, Huma Abedin, sources say. “The Clintons wish Weiner would just disappear. Every time he pops up, it’s a reminder of Bill’s scandal withMonica Lewinsky, and it isn’t helpful to Hillary’s hopes for 2016,” one Democrat told Page Six. Abedin has worked for the former US senator and secretary of state for many years, and traveled with her as her “body woman,” her closest aide. It is believed that Abedin is still on the Clintons’ payroll although she isn’t working at the Clinton Foundation. Abedin will no doubt be one of Hillary’s first hires for her presidential campaign team. “The Clintons love Huma. She has a job for life, no matter how much of an embarrassment her husband is,” said our source.

Apparently,

His conduct has “fallen short”…

Shocked that a guy who likes to wave around his 5 1/2″ or less with distinguishing characteristics isn’t going to support a guy who likes to wave around his somewhat more than 5 1/2″.

Huma’s still married to Weiner? Man, I’d have lost that bet.

Marcola on May 13, 2013 at 3:13 PM

You mean the Clintons are leaving Wiener hanging?

UltimateBob on May 13, 2013 at 3:30 PM

Hillary doesnt do wiener?

The Clintons wish Weiner would just disappear.

And they have a pretty good track record of having that happen, so maybe Weiner just better play nice and get a quiet desk job out of the public eye until Hillary is safely president. If he knows what’s good for him.

“Every time he pops up”

Plenty of double entendre material her

Just a reminder that Weiner is married to Hillary’s top aide. If you have any doubt what the Clinton’s do is always a political calculation this is it.

I guess he’ll have to stand on his own.

I really want a Mayor of my city, in charge of the NYPD, with a wife beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Sometimes sleeze doesn`t like to back other sleeze or two perverts like Clinton and Weiner

Two words for Weiner.
Vince.
Foster.

great headline at Breitbart about his hiring someone for his run. Weiner enlarging his staff for mayoral run

deimos on May 13, 2013 at 10:27 PM

Oh, heck, I’ll throw a few more out…

“Hillary tries to distance herself from Weiner”
“An impressive showing from a certain Weiner could cause trouble for the Clintons”
“Despite valiant attempts, Clintons failing to keep Weiner out of public view”
“Weiner scandal nags Hillary”
“Weiner standing strong despite Hillary’s fury”

In a related news release, the Clenis is allegedly considering throwing his considerable weight behind the relatively unknown Oscar Mayer Cigaro, Jr.

Oh, and by the way, can we please play Wack-a-Mole with these A. Weiner stories with mallets in both hands — please?

Even stain remover won’t work on those bed sheets… :D

BigSven on May 14, 2013 at 8:10 AM

So they’re not going to support Weiner?

Ward Cleaver on May 14, 2013 at 9:44 AM

Of course they won’t support Weiner. They are supporting their little Huma. That’s a no brainer. It’s easier to promote Islam that way. Islam is the answer, not a sex pervert like Bill. It’s just sex, you know. It gets in the way of ruling the world or something.
