"Hillary Clinton has a 'secret deal' with her top aide Huma Abedin to keep Abedin’s troublesome husband, Anthony Weiner, out of the spotlight..."

"... sources tell Page Six, as the former secretary of state mulls a run for president."

I love the set of photos at the link, where there's an illusion that Hillary's hand reaches over to Huma's face.

Ha ha, good luck, Hillary--salacious sleaze follows you and your husband and minions wherever you go. You may as well embrace it.

Though I don't really see how the Weiner hurts Hillary. So her trusted aide is married to a creepy disgraced politician (and her daughter is married to the son of another creepy disgraced politician). I don't think that's going to translate into lost votes. But it sure is entertaining Clintonfraude.

You usually don't read about 'secret deals' in the Paper.

Hope this helps.

Peek-a-boob! Kim K.'s nipple steals show in selfie

I dunno. Every story is about boobs.

"In place of phalii, says Herodotus, they came up with other objects about a cubit long, which had a thread attached; these were carried by women who, by pulling on the threads, were able to make the objects stand upright, a reproduction of the male genital organ, almost as big as the rest of the body."

I had thought that "Anthony Weiner" was perhaps the least of all of the Hillary/Huma scandals.

MathMom said...

That worked so well with Bill, after all...

MadMan,

"You usually don't read about 'secret deals' in the Paper"

This statement just shows you don't read the right kind of paper.

It would have been even better if the photo they picked for Carlos was one of his selfies.

For most people, you wouldn't need secret deals. Just shame.

The Crack Emcee said...

Huma should get Hillary to sign one, too,...

Anonymous said...

For obvious reasons, our political class in DC needs more people with names like Huma Weiner.

Hilarious quote from the linked story:

"While Abedin has been accompanying Hillary on a tour to promote her book 'Hard Choices,' Weiner has been making a few hard choices of his own."

I'll bet he has!

Michael K said...

That's not the only secret deal Hillary has with Huma.

AustinRoth said...

Or what? She will "Vincent Foster" him?

lemondog said...

So what is the 'deal', the incentive for him to behave?

Some big $$$ payoff? Getting his political career back on track? Letting him keep his iPhone?

What, what, what....

CStanley said...

Or what? She will "Vincent Foster" him?

Or perhaps appoint him as an ambassador.

Mary Beth said...

Keeping him out of politics, leaving him to find other ways to occupy his time, sounds like an excellent idea.

"I'll bet he has!"

I wonder if garage is sufficiently recovered from his full throated defense of Weiners "my twitter was hacked" defense failure?

Secret routers.
Twitter being hacked.

According to garage, all true.

IRS/EPA/Insert any Gov't Dept Here "accidently" loses emails,then accidently discards/destroys harddrives?

Also absolutely true.

True true true.

Truer than true.

Back to the topic, why does there have to be a secret deal or even a strategy to keep Weiner out of the spotlight.

All Hillary's folks have to do is spread the word to the media and the media will simply fall in line.

Easy peasy.

In fact, Hillary's folks don't even have to spread the word.

The media will simply follow the implicit requirements of Hillary's campaign needs.

Cool post Althouse. Great link to a rumor. Please see above post insisting on journalistic integrity with respect to Scott Walker story, and please note Althouse's double standard and complete lack of the cruel neutrality she claims to apply.

From Inwood said...

Some think that Hil needs to stay out of the spotlight based on her, er, poor appearances so far.

Chuck said...

Is it not a story, that an accomplished mid-level executive like Huma Abedin's current occupation is "accompanying" Hillary Clinton on a book tour? What the heck is Huma Abedin's job/title? What sort of entourage is required by Hillary Clinton, for a book tour? How does the Weiner family support itself?

traditionalguy said...

Secrets are hidden on page 6. Only the dull stuff is on pages 1 through 5.

Will nobody rid Hill of these Vast Right Wing Conspirators?

Nichevo said...

Heyooyeh,

Whatever else you are, you're dull. God, you're dull.

chillblaine said...

The wheels haven't flown off the Hilary machine, but they are looking a bit wobbly.

Time to get Cory Booker warmed up in the bullpen.

Kirk Parker said...

"What the heck is Huma Abedin's job/title? "

"FB".

stlcdr said...

What sort of 'deal' would this be? A thousand bucks in used fives? There does seem to be a lot of this deal making, over the years. I'm curious whether it would be a good deal or not.
