Disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner and his wife, long-time Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, are apparently doing everything possible to save their marriage. According to a New York Post report, Weiner spends the vast majority of his time in the couple's Manhattan apartment in an effort to patch up their fractured marriage after his series of high-profile sexual indiscretions, mostly revolving around lewd photos Weiner sent to numerous women.
A Clinton source reported that the couple was working toward a reconciliation, having only publicly separated during Clinton's presidential campaign as a public relations move.
Monday on "Pat & Stu," the guys questioned why Abedin continues to try to make things work with Weiner, whose digital dalliances and poor treatment of Abedin were chronicled in the 2016 documentary "Weiner." Stu Burguiere also wondered if a compulsion to seek attention motivated Weiner's repeated sexting:
"Weiner, if nothing else, really valued his face on the TV. And that doesn't really happen that much except when he's, you know, sexting teenage girls now. And people don't care what his opinions are. He got less than 5 percent of the vote when he ran for mayor [of New York City]. Obviously, his career's in shambles because of how many times he's screwed up. You know, I'm surprised, almost, in this world though that he doesn't just get another shot, you know? I mean if Roman Polanski's out there directing movies, I mean, certainly what he did was definitely not as bad as what Roman Polanski did. To defend Anthony Weiner for a moment here."
"And Hollywood loves Roman Polanski," Pat Gray replied. "They're all about him. So,why not? Why not this dirtbag, too?"
