Video: Weiner’s classy exit

posted at 10:08 am on September 11, 2013 by

I have a main-page post on the travails of Carlos Danger and Client #9, but this is worth noting for a few laughs, too. Despite the obvious loss that was coming, Anthony Weiner didn’t bother to prepare a concession speech that thanked his wife by name, even though Weiner had managed to add more humiliation to Huma Abedin’s life by jumping into a political race with new and more recent scandalous on-line behavior. He also had a valedictory salute for the media:

Here’s a better look at it, via NY1 and the Daily Mail:

Stay classy, Carlos.

In response to the reporter’s question at the end: “What’s next for Weiner?”

My guess is divorce court.

Maybe the divorce court judge can see both Weiner & the other miscreant, Spitzer, on the same day.

I’m guessing bigamy, even if one of the partners is the same sex, will still be illegal by mid-2016.

Happily I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Mr. Danger. The arrogant little weed will surely arise again to provide comic relief.

I thought he was rather impressive on the O’Donnell show. And I think he has the right to flip off the news media. Would you all do the same?

Yes, what he did to his wife was terrible. But it’s not really our business. This thing has been overdone. I think it’s pathetic of her to stay with him, though.

..when he runs for public office asking for public trust, it becomes our business.

Wiener should be hired as a front for the HIllary campaign just so he can keep hanging around.

Bingo.

If we were living in reality this jackass would have been tarred and feathered a long time ago.

Please-sorry-thank you
Humble in victory….gracious in defeat.
I’ve guess some people aren’t taught or take the time to learn a few simple things in life

Well that statement could apply to a large number of our “public servants.”

My guess is Mr. Weiner be looking for some buns to lie around in…

It’s pretty funny that Weiner had trouble voting.

It’s so hard for Democrats to pull that lever or fill out that form, isn’t it?

New York has redeemed itself for the Bloomberg idiocy. They just need to remember not to vote in another gun-control, soda-nazi, big-government moron.
