You’ve probably heard the news that Hillary Clinton’s campaign vice chairman, Huma Abedin, has decided to separate from serial philanderer and disgraced congressman, Anthony Weiner.
Everyone has an opinion about it including presidential candidate Donald Trump who released an official statement.
“Huma is making a very wise decision. I know Anthony Weiner well, and she will be far better off without him. 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.” – Donald J. Trump
Now this is a particularly interesting decision on Mr. Trump’s part. While he’s chosen to mostly go after Republicans in the past, and has in so many instances simply not been interested in attacking Hillary, this more tantalizing and gossipy political story baited him into doing a press release. Not surprising considering his character, but hypocritical nonetheless.
Unless of course, Donald Trump is suggesting he’s also a security risk? After all, the only thing he could be calling into question about Weiner is that he is a repeat homewrecker guilty of numerous affairs which calls into question his own judgment. So what does that say of Mr. Trump, who is also an admitted serial philanderer for which he has never once apologized? In fact, he’s bragged about it.
In The Art of the Deal Trump boasted that “If I told the real stories of my experiences with women, often seemingly very happily married and important women, this book would be a guaranteed best-seller.”
Not to mention it’s historical fact that Trump cheated on first wife Ivana Trump with Marla Maples.
Trump has made no bones about the fact that he’s had plenty of sexual indiscretions, he even said he considers them fair game on the campaign trail.
But don’t get me wrong: I agree with him about Weiner. Obviously Carlos Danger was incapable of containing his impulses.I don’t want Anthony Weiner, or anyone like him, to be near our national secrets.
He is clearly such a self-centered narcissist that the idea of consequence, despite the fact that he’d already been caught previously, simply didn’t occur to him or at the very least he assumed he would escape any such consequence. Almost like the rules don’t apply to him. A New York socialite that wants to coast through life on his charm and prominence and frankly, who he hurts or lies to doesn’t seem that important to him. An incredibly dangerous combination of traits for someone that would have access to such high level American secrets.
Know anyone else like that?
