Huma Abedin Is Finally Dropping the Weiner

Anthony Weiner was busted once more on Sunday for sending pictures of his tentpole to some rando via Twitter, and you know what? His wife has finally, finally had it.


This is at least the third instance in which Weiner has been caught with his pants on, off, half down, whatever, and it’s apparently three strikes you’re out for Huma Abedin, who is in the midst of working on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Abedin has been, from the outside at least, endlessly supportive and tolerant of Weiner’s escapades, leading many to wonder what the breaking point would be in their marriage, or what their arrangement might be. Well, she no longer has time for this. In a statement, Abedin announced her bid for freedom from the guy who shared an underwear shot shot next to his sleeping infant:

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.


You go, girl.

I just saw this on TV in the lunch room. I literally jumped up and shouted, “FINALLY!”

An interesting aside: I asked the other people in the room WHY he felt the need to do this when Huma is a brilliant, beautiful woman. One of the guys postulated that he did it precisely because Huma out-classes him in every respect, and he just can’t handle it. I thought that was a very interesting theory.
