Huma Abedin, a Hillary Clinton adviser, known as diplomatic, private

(CNN) – When former U.S. congressman Anthony Weiner admitted two years ago to sending explicit messages and photos to women online, his wife was notably absent, letting Weiner make his public mea culpa alone. But on Tuesday, Huma Abedin was front and center as Weiner confessed to having further explicit exchanges, even after the first scandal forced his resignation from Congress.

Abedin, 36, is no stranger to politics. She has worked for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for years and accompanied her husband on the campaign trail in his current bid for New York City mayor.

    Ha! His wife is one of Hillary's advisors? Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. Next she can blame it on a "vast right wing conspiracy" and then not get called out on it. Or maybe she can claim she was dodging sniper fire and then not get called out on it. Or maybe she can totally mess up everything she touches and not get called out on it.

    She's drinking from the same old cup that Hillary supped; plenty of denial flavored kook-aid to go around. Humiliate yourself to preserve the chance at power. Typical Arabic sheep-woman. How sad to see an intelligent woman eat her husbands waste on TV.

    Really?? Is this what democrat women do – the ones who scream that they're for women's rights?? This is the most self-degrading, self- disrespecting act I've seen a woman do in recent times. This is not what women wants to be – she has an agenda just like Hilary did – speaking of – is this the kind of woman we want in high offices of this land? I don't think so. Disgusting. Any self-respecting woman – or man, for that matter – will see right through this.
