In an interview with CNN, former president and notorious deviant Bill Clinton insisted that his personal ties to Weiner preclude him from commenting on the disgraced former congressman's latest scandals:

"We are a hundred miles from that race and everyone understands that we are not going to be involved, as long as our personal friends and people who we feel obligations are involved," he told CNN's Nima Elbagir.

Clinton was responding to a question about candidate Anthony Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, and what advice the 42nd president might give them.

"Neither Hillary or I was ever involved in the political campaign, and they understood that from the beginning," he said. "There are too many people running for mayor who have been my supporters, who supported her for senator, her for president." [...]

Explaining why he didn't want to weigh in on the matter, he pointed to one of the Democratic candidates, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, and his role as Clinton's campaign manager in Hillary Clinton's first bid for the U.S. Senate in 2000.

"But there are literally five people in that race, including one of the Republican candidates Mr. (John) Catsimatidis, who are personal friends of ours," he said.

"So, the feelings I have are all personal and since they are, I shouldn't talk about them," he added.
