U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, who has been under fire after admitting to inappropriate communications with women online, has decided to seek treatment “to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person,” his spokeswoman said Saturday.
For Huma Abedin, I have nothing but compassion. While her husband, Mr. Congressman, faces the onslaught of reporters seeking the latest in his scandalous sexting and canoodling, she must privately endure embarrassment, betrayal, and anger. To add insult to injury, all while in the early stages of her first pregnancy. I am sure her closest girlfriends have rallied around her (and are probably-not too secretly-planning Anthony’s demise).
On a lighter note, this statement brings a smile to my face. He is entering treatment to become a better husband? Where is this facility and how much do they charge? Maybe the doctors offer weekend stays for men that aren’t habitual liars, but just need to brush up on their husbandry skills. The staff should also consider a boot camp for men who are newly engaged. A week long stay to teach them everything they will need to be a great husband. How great would this be? “Oh honey, the ring is amazing and your proposal was SO romantic. I have heard of this GREAT place!”
