You must hand it to Donald Trump.
He hits every hot button there is to hit. And he doesn’t miss very often.
His latest target if Huma Abedin, aka Mrs. Anthony Weiner.
Abedin is a close adviser and confidante to Hillary Rodham Clinton, who’s being rocked by these e-mail revelations relating to the time she served as secretary of state.
But it wasn’t so much Abedin who took the brunt of Trump’s latest trash-talking tirade, delivered Friday in Massachusetts. It was Abedin’s husband.
Former U.S. Rep. “Carlos Danger” Weiner, you’ll recall, was outed for sending pictures of his manhood through the Internet to women who aren’t his wife. He quit his congressional seat. He then ran for New York City mayor and lost badly.
He’s out of the public eye. Or at least he was out of it … until now, thanks to Donald Trump. “So now — think of it — Huma is getting classified secrets. She is married to Anthony Weiner, who is a perv,” Trump said. “Now these are confidential documents and guess what happens to Anthony Weiner. A month ago he went to work for a public relations firm. ”
Actually, Trump is overstating Weiner’s place in recent political history. He called the ex-lawmaker “one of the great sleazebags of our time.”
I don’t think so. He’s a chump who got his thrills sending dirty pictures to women.
Do not fret, though. Trump has energized a segment of the Republican Party that eats this stuff up.
I’m still having trouble wrapping my head around the words “President Trump.”
