    When it comes to hunching over while breathing through the mouth, he surely knows a thing or two. . . If you’re the perviest creep in politics, you probably shouldn’t insult decent Americans in the most denigrating terms. But hey, you’re disgraced ex-congressman Anthony Weiner, wife of close Hillary aide Huma Abedin. Appearing on today’s With All Due Respect, Weiner, slumped in his chair in T-shirt and jeans, said that Donald Trump “appeals to that mouth-breathing, hunched over, one-tooth person that is the primary voter for Republicans.” For good measure, Weiner said “I will eat Heilemann’s shoes” if Hillary doesn’t...

    Practically everyone in Washington is talking about a sensational fly-on-the-wall documentary titled Weiner. I guarantee this documentary will not bore you to death. That’s because Weiner is really not about a schmuck named Anthony Weiner, who was forced to resign from Congress after it was revealed he had tweeted sleazy photos of his bulging underwear to various women. Weiner is really about Anthony Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin, who also happens to be Hillary Clinton’s closest personal adviser. As a way of redeeming his name as well as hers, Huma convinced Anthony to run for mayor of New York City—only to...

Her in-box was filled with an unusually large number of messages. She opened one, sent by a stranger: “youre about to be famoussssssss,” it read. Other messages mentioned BuzzFeed.

    You can’t win if you’re this disliked. Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) is pretty sanguine about the Democratic Party’s chances in a general election should Donald Trump become the Republican Party’s nominee. Unlike the labor wing of the party, which worries about Trump’s appeal to working-class white voters, and operatives who fear a scorched-earth campaign, Weiner says the real estate tycoon’s inherent flaws will ultimately doom his candidacy. Put simply, Trump’s campaign reminds Weiner of his own race for mayor of New York City in 2013. “Donald Trump, if he’s the nominee, with 65 percent negatives, is not going to...

Too bad: The new documentary "Weiner" is showing at the Sundance Film Festival today and hits theaters May 20. The film started as an effort to capture the successful comeback of the disgraced ex-congressman in his 2013 run for mayor. Documentarians Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg got inside access to the campaign - so the cameras were rolling when the news broke that Carlos hadn't stopped sexting after all.

    NY Post -- Page Six ^ | 6-26-14 | Emily Smith and Ian Mohr
    Hillary Clinton has a “secret deal” with her top aide Huma Abedin to keep her troublesome husband Anthony Weiner out of the spotlight, sources tell Page Six, as the former secretary of state mulls a run for president. Clinton aides have insisted Weiner “stay out of public life for two years,” and that he “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton,” according to our sources. The former sexting pol has been noticeably absent at recent public events attended by Abedin, including the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards Dinner in Manhattan earlier this month. Nor has he appeared at the...
  • Anthony Weiner Favorites “Ultimate Sext Machine” Tweet, Calls it an Accident

    You’d think former Rep. Anthony Weiner would try to avoid anything with the word “sexting” like the plague. After all, it was a sexting scandal that pushed him out of office in 2011. But recently, Weiner found himself trying to explain why he would favorite a tweet that claimed “Tinder will now be the ultimate sext machine.” It was a tweet by former Slate staffer Matt Yglesias, who is now Vox’s executive editor, and included a link to a piece about a new photo feature in the dating app.

    If Hillary wins, would Huma Abedin, Hillary's long-time aide (and presently working at the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation) have access to the White House? It would seem so. Given that, would her husband - Anthony Weiner - at least have a modicum of access to the White House, too? Bill and Tony: the not-so-odd-couple? Scandals magnifique?

    The Rich Lieberman Report ^ | 3/26/2014 | Rich Lieberman
    Love him, hate him, revile at his rants, he's the highest-paid radio host in the Bay Area; Michael Savage, syndicated talkie that has destroyed his ghost rival, Sean Hannity not only here, (KSFO), but NY, (King of the apple), Chicago, Detroit, Dallas. It's not even close in the important radio demos that count although some advertisers are still weary of Savage's discourse. They might have to reassess that position. Savage makes north of a million dollars but between his books and diversified business interests fortune, he's reportedly worth close to $100 million. Who needs radio?

    The Week ^ | 3-24-14 | Jon Terbush
    Former congressman and New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner — who has been looking for a new gig ever since he twice torpedoed his political career by sexting random women on the internet — has finally found a job. Beginning this week, Weiner will write a monthly political column (creatively titled, "Weiner!") for Business Insider.

    You can draw the historical comparisons as easily as I can, so I won’t bore you with them. Simple question instead: Should we cut this guy some slack for slobbering this way knowing that he’s just trying to make amends for jeopardizing his wife’s career? Huma was, and probably still is, a lock for membership in the White House inner circle if Hillary wins in 2016. The only baggage that might get her booted is you-know-who’s habit of doing you-know-what. If, after two years of public humiliation, Weiner wants to make it up to her by keeping a straight face...

    Scandal-plagued Anthony Weiner — whose wife is a close associate to Hillary Clinton — laid it on pretty thick for the former first lady this week, characterizing her as quite possibly the best politician for the presidential role in the entire history of the United States. On Larry King’s Ora TV show, Mr. Weiner said: “If Hillary were to run, she’d be an amazing candidate, arguably the most qualified candidate in the history of the United States ever to run for president,” The New York Post reports.
