Hillary Clinton, in good old Marxist/Democrat tradition genuinely believes that it is her turn to be President of the United States of America. She did not, after all, endure all those years with Bill and his scandalous sexual misdeeds for nothing.
Now that her alleged lesbian lover Huma Abedin is suffering from marital sexual scandals of her own, and very much in public at that, Hillary is discovering that… Well, not all publicity is good publicity. In other words, for the sake of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential campaign, it is now time for Huma Abedin to exit stage left.
Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s transition office chief and the wife of embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, is expected to take extended vacation time from her job with the former first lady in the coming days, sources told POLITICO.
The move is not a leave of absence, two sources familiar with the move insisted, and it’s not precisely clear when she will depart for her vacation time from her day job.
The good wives club
It was a loose plan she’d had for weeks, since Hillary Clinton has close to no schedule next month – the Clintons are expected to vacation in the monied East Hampton enclave on Long Island – and Abedin had been expected to take the final few weeks leading up to the mayoral primary to be with her husband.
But she decided to stick to it as current events in her husband’s campaign have unfolded, the sources said. Weiner has spent the last week answering questions about fresh sexting incidents after he left Congress in 2011, and Abedin has been the subject of a string of rough headlines since she spoke at a press conference with her husband and said she loved and believed in him.
“Huma is not taking a leave of absence, but she will be taking vacation time in August to support her family during Anthony’s campaign,” said a Weiner campaign source. “She had always intended to do this.”
While it’s not a “leave,” the vacation time provides a change from a straddling of two roles that Abedin had been playing – helping her husband while also serving as the former secretary of state’s top aide as she transitions from Foggy Bottom to her family’s foundation.
POLITICO reported Tuesday that a number of people in the extended Clinton world had grown concerned about Abedin amid the media circus surrounding her husband.
It is also not yet clear what type of role Abedin will play in her husband’s campaign going forward. She had begun to appear with him on the campaign trail prior to the revelations on TheDirty.com, but has not resumed since last week’s news conference.
She did not appear in a video Weiner filmed in the couple’s apartment Saturday in which the candidate looked into the camera and declared that New Yorkers don’t “quit.”
The truth be told, suggesting that Hillary Clinton has all the moral and ethical standards of a Black Widow Spider would require denigrating the Black Widow by an enormous degree.
The real question everyone should be asking is, now that Huma Abedin is a liability to Hillary, how will Huma’s brethren within the Muslim Brotherhood/Al Qaeda react. Homosexuality is utterly forbidden under Islamic law, though lying to infidels and doing things to further the advancement of Islamic conquest is not (Taqiyya). Will the radical ultra orthodox clerics within the Muslim Brotherhood/Al Qaeda grant Huma special dispensation in return for her covert spying on their behalf, or will they issue a fatwa and demand her death since she is no longer useful?
