Sometime shortly after Memorial Day weekend 2011, outspoken Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York was revealed to have sent dirty sexts and photos of his penis to a whole bunch of nice ladies. Weiner was married to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s longtime aide and confidante, Huma Abedin. Did Clinton have time, while flying around the world, to check in on her close aide’s penis story?
She certainly did.
That’s chief of staff Cheryl Mills there, keeping our nation’s top diplomat up to speed on all the latest developments regarding Anthony Weiner’s exposed member and how it affected his status as a member of Congress. Mills sent Clinton a piece on how therapists viewed Weiner’s sexting compulsion, a wrap-up piece following Weiner’s resignation (“see Doug references” she wrote in the headline, referring to Bill Clinton’s longtime gatekeeper, Doug Band), a report about how Abedin supposedly sought advice from Hillary Clinton, and more.
Clinton was just as impatient to see how this played out as the rest of America’s tabloid readers were.
She’s just like us! (Except also Secretary of State and boss/mentor of Weiner’s wife and Hillary Clinton.)
