As the chyron on Fusion TV’s “America with Jorge Ramos” so aptly asked, “Has Anthony Weiner reinvented himself?” The failed mayoral hopeful and former 13-term congressman appeared on the show this week and brashly said he wanted to guest host the show sometime. “Any day!” Jorge exclaimed in outwardly serious tone. Weiner’s possible reinvention is understandable after all he’s been through, all the lies he’s told the media and his wife and all that sexting that likely wore out his poor thumbs and blew up his phone.
But since when does he seek hair tips from 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube and Ice-T?
Since his time in the limelight, Weiner now writes a column for Business Insider and has let his curls out. Although he keeps them tight and bound close to his head.
Ramos posed the only real question people still want to know – does he still sext? It went unanswered, largely because he’s reinventing himself. Wouldn’t that answer be an adamant “no” at this point? Even just for his wife Huma Abedin‘s sake? Hmmm….that would be a big fat no. Now he thinks he’s “earned the right” to not answer that question, especially as a “private citizen” who isn’t running for anything at the moment. Instead, he said, it’s none of your business.
Will he seek public office the future?
The new do makes him look even more like “Welcome Back Kotter’s” Arnold Horshack than ever, which may not entice voters to take him seriously in a future election.
But as you might imagine, the new curly-frocked Weiner is not completely closing any doors. “I’m finding something else to be honest with you. …I’m finding that there are a lot of ways to influence the process,” he said.
You might be wondering how Weiner’s looked before the Jheri-like ringlets. Have a look.
