I have written and warned about Huma Abedin since 2007. Long time readers know exactly who and what she is – so yes, everybody dance now.
Hoisted with their own petard, that hoax Weiner beard marriage. She’s not crying for Hillary she is crying for the lost caliphate dream. Up in smoke.
We. Dodged. A. Bullet.
Watch this video and then smile broadly.
“EXCLUSIVE: Huma breaks down and weeps openly as she returns to campaign headquarters where she and her aides ran doomed bid to elect Hillary Clinton,” By Geoff Earle, Deputy Us Political Editor For Dailymail.com, 11 November 2016:
- Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin wept in the street as she approached the failed campaign’s headquarters in Brooklyn
- The FBI investigation into her pervert estranged husband Anthony Weiner is being cited as one of the reasons for her boss losing – it led to the Clinton email investigation being re-opened
- It is unclear what Abedin, 40, will do now that her boss’s political career is over; she has never worked for anyone else
- Abedin made the phonecall to Trump’s aide Kellyann Conway in which Clinton conceded to the President-elect – minutes after her cmapaign chairman had suggested there would be no concession
- She declared her marriage to serial sexter Weiner over when he sent sexual picture of himself in bed alongside their son to a woman in her 40s – then DailyMail.com revealed his sexts to a girl, 15
Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin wept openly in the street on Friday as she returned to the place where the Democratic candidate’s campaign was fought – and lost.
Abedin looked like she had the weight of the world on her shoulders as she visited the campaign headquarters of the failed presidential candidate – after her own stumbles and her husband’s sexting habits helped contribute to Clinton’s historic defeat.
Abedin ventured out of her Manhattan apartment and went to the office three days after President-elect Donald Trump shocked the world by defeating Clinton.
She approached the tall building with stunning views which had until Tuesday been filled with staff an volunteers carrying a bag and a purse.
The pain and emotion of the situation were clearly visible on the face of the long-time loyalist, despite the dark large-frame sunglasses that covered her eyes.
Breaking down: Huma Abedin was crying as she walked to the Clinton campaign headquarters, carrying the access credential for the Brooklyn offices
Sad day: Briefings from inside the Clinton camp made clear that none of the top aides saw the defeat coming, helping explain Abedin’s demeanor as she went back to her office
The dream is over: Abedin, who has only ever worked for Hillary Clinton, was back at the campaign headquarters for the first time. She was its vice-chair and seen as the most important of her personal retinue
Emotional: The first trip back to the campaign headquarters in ultra-liberal Brooklyn from her Manhattan duplex proved to be an tearful journey for Abedin.
Key message: Abedin appeared to start weeping after she read a message on her mobile phone as she made her way to the Brooklyn headquarters
At one point Abedin’s lip quivered and she wiped her eyes as she took the emotional journey back to work.
It isn’t known how long the Clinton campaign office will remain open, or how long a lease the candidate signed. Clinton herself was spotted taking a walk Thursday when a supporter snapped a selfie with the smiling candidate.
Abedin has many reasons to take the loss hard. She has been a constant presence at Clinton’s side, having worked in her office when she was first lady, served as ‘body woman’ accompanying her while Clinton was a senator, and having followed her to the State Department.
It has been repeatedly reported that Clinton considers her to be like a surrogate daughter. Other Clinton loyalists and believers were visibly shaken during the candidate’s farewell speech on Wednesday.
Abedin took on more senior roles with Clinton at State and at the campaign.
In hacked emails posted on WikiLeaks, she emerges as Clinton’s ultimate gatekeeper, weighing in about top fundraisers and dignitaries seeking face-time with the former secretary of state, while also serving as a conduit of information to the Clinton Foundation.
Abedin was suddenly and unexpectedly out of the Clinton bubble after FBI Director James Comey announced just 11 days before the election that the bureau was taking another look at Clinton’s emails.
It soon was revealed that the FBI had come across thousands of additional emails related to Clinton while investigating the laptop of disgraced ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner, who is married to Abedin, though the two are now estranged.
As DailyMail.com reported, Weiner, who quit Congress after a sexting scandal, allegedly sent inappropriate messages to an underage girl.
Wiping away the tears: Huma Abedin was on her way back to the Brooklyn headquarters where she was the pivotal figure around Clinton when she broke down
Long walk: The journey from her Manhattan duplex to the Brooklyn headquarters seemed to be emotionally fraught
Marked contrast: Huma Abedin’s boss seemed to have the weight of the campaign lifted from her shoulders as she posed with a hiker near her Chappaqua home
All over: Her pervert ex-husband Anthony Weiner’s serial sexting has cost Abedin her marriage and is being blamed for bringing about the demise of her boss’s campaign. She is now splitting childcare with his mother
