Full disclosure: I’m a great fan of women. My mother was a woman, and I was blessed with two wonderful sisters. I’ve been married twice, to women. My daughter is a woman. I think women are just great.
But I have to ask: Women of the world, what is wrong with you, babes?
Washington (CNN) — Longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin announced Monday that she and former US Rep. Anthony Weiner are separating after new reports surfaced that he sent sexually suggestive photos again.“After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband. Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy,” Abedin said in a statement Monday.
Girl, how come it took you five years to decide this guy was defective merchandise?
Ms. Abedin is presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s closest adviser. Which brings us to ask, how come you are taking advice from her? Wait, is it possible Abedin is the one who previously advised, “You really should hook up with Bill Clinton. He has the makings of a great family man.”
Irony upon irony! Weiner’s correspondent in the latest texting episode is a Trumpette:
The object of Weiner’s affections is his polar opposite politically: a self-avowed supporter of Donald Trump and the National Rifle Association who’s used Twitter to bash both President Obama and Clinton.
Screenshots show the electronic chats began in late January 2015 and continued through earlier this month, according to the woman, who spoke to The Post on condition of anonymity.
And while Weiner repeatedly invited her to visit him in New York City, she said, “We never met.”
Of course, The Donald is making hay of it all:
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump attacked former New York representative Anthony Weiner, calling the husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin a “pervert sleaze” just one day after the New York businessman’s new campaign manager said he “doesn’t hurl personal insults.”
“What about the fact that Huma Abedin — who knows every single thing about Hillary Clinton, she knows more about Hillary than Hillary knows — and she’s married to a pervert sleaze named Anthony Weiner, who will send anything that he has out over Twitter,” Trump said on Fox News Monday morning, referring to Weiner’s ongoing sexting scandals.
Bringing us around to the matter of Melania Trump and the choices women make.
