If you’re Huma Abedin, one of possible presidential contender Hillary Clinton‘s top political aides, you must grow tired of a husband who continues to think with his penis even after he’s caught screwing around.
Boneheaded took on new proportions in recent days as Anthony Weiner, failed mayoral hopeful and ex-Democratic congressman who resigned in 2011 in the wake of sexting a variety of women – and lying about it, favorited a story on Tinder being the “ultimate sext machine.” BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynksi first noticed it. Weiner apologized for that – smart move. But then he admitted he purchased Tinder stock – dumb, dumb move.
His tweets: “Ok, to recap my day. I accidentally hit the star thingy on a @voxdotcom story about Tinder. Sorry.” And then: “In related news, I did buy 1000 shares of Tinder stock.”
To make matters infinitely worse, the Village Voice reported that Weiner also favorited the photographs of a large-breasted woman (pictured above) in Orange County, California. Among her more eloquent captions: As pointed out by Daily Mail, “Fresh out the showaaa’ wearing a pair of purple underwear and no pants.” Or, showing a close-up of her chest stuffed into a green tank top (shown above), she writes, #green #tongue, #moi #ilovebob.”
No doubt all that was accidental, too.
Seriously, why even apologize at this point? Weiner may have enjoyed Vox Media‘s story on why Tinder is such a sext machine, but he may have missed recent reports about hookup sites such as Grindr and Tinder being an incubator of gonorrhea and chlamydia.
As the expression goes, it’s hard to teach a dog new tricks.
And well, Weiner’s up to his old ones.
