Shortly after Hillary Clinton campaign vice chair Huma Abedin announced that she was separating from her husband Anthony Weiner, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell interviewed Ann Coulter. The interview was about Coulter’s last adoration book on Donald Trump. But Mitchell pushed Coulter about Abedin.
Mitchell asked Coulter for a reaction to the news about Weiner’s newest sexting scandal and their “personal lives:”
‘Congratulations on your new book, Ann. First, we wanted to talk to you about immigration, your take on where [Trump] is going with that. But obviously, the news that has just broken about Huma Abedin — I don’t know if you have a comment.’
Coulter seemed surprised by the question, but then she responded quickly:
‘No. Just that I’m surprised that it took so long.’
Mitchell addressed the issue gently:
‘It obviously has political impact, which is why we are talking about it today.’
Then the two went on to discuss Coulter’s latest book, In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!
Weiner and Abedin married in 2010, and this is his third sex scandal since then. Former congressman Weiner was forced to leave Congress after the first scandal. The second scandal occurred while he was running for New York City mayor, and it tanked the whole campaign.
Now that Abedin is in the final days of Clinton’s presidential campaign, Weiner could not have picked a worse time to get caught sexting again.
In this latest incident, the former congressman tweeted a racy photo of himself in bed, with his little boy curled up asleep beside him.
Former Michigan governor and Clinton spokesperson Jennifer Granholm said: MSNBC
‘This is a private matter and this should remain a private matter.’
But Clinton’s “second daughter’s” separation soon hit the Donald Trump ugly machine. The idea that the personal life of an aide to a political competitor should be used as campaign fodder is ridiculous, but Trump has proven he cannot stoop too low:
‘Huma is making a very wise decision. I know Anthony Weiner well, and she will be far better off without him.’
Trump opined that this could be an issue of national security:
‘I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information. Who knows what he learned and who he told?
‘It’s just another example of Hillary Clinton’s bad judgment. It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this.’
Trump lives in a glass house built on two failed marriages and a cheating, woman-chasing history. Perhaps, when it comes to political impact, he should not throw stones. As Mitchell says about this very painful, very public incident:
‘It’s hard to figure out what happens in anyone’s personal lives.’
