WATCH: Anthony Weiner on NBC’s Meet the Press: ‘I don’t know’ if Huma will be at my side

Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press this Sunday morning, Anthony Weiner seemed to dodge the question as to whether or not his wife would be around for any future campaigning.

Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press this Sunday morning, Anthony Weiner seemed to dodge the question as to whether or not his wife would be around for any future campaigning.

Speaking to NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, Weiner said that he doesn’t know if his wife Huma Abedin, a close confidant of Hillary Clinton, would be at his side in future campaign events, even if he’s fortunate enough to make it to Election Day Tuesday.

“Before this campaign, you participated in a couple of profiles that portrayed you as a rehabilitated and changed person,” Guthrie said. “You left out the key fact that some of this behavior continued after our resignation from Congress. Was that not at the least misleading?”

Weiner acknowledged that he continued to deceive the public and his wife after the People Magazine story praising his supposed rehabilitation from lewd texting was published, but insisted that he and his wife had moved on from that period. But Guthrie pressed Weiner on the fact that his wife continued to vouch for him during a time where he apparently hadn’t stopped texting women other than his wife. “Does that not show a capacity to look someone in the eye, and lie?” Guthrie asked.

“No, things were a lot better during that People Magazine profile. They were a lot better,” Weiner replied.

“But she didn’t know that,” Guthrie countered.

“But things were a lot better. Look — I was working through things.”

Guthrie then asked if Weiner thought that his wife would be at his side on the campaign trail from now on.

“I don’t know — I mean, I’m walking a fine line. You know, you have — as a reporter you have an appetite for the Huma side of the story,” Weiner responded. “I want to talk about issues important to the middle class and the issues that citizens care about.”

    This is a simple case, not hard to figure out at all. This is a man who will always do as he pleases and the whole world be damned. He does not recognize his own failings and never will. I feel truly sorry for his wife but if she continues to enable his reprehensible behavior I will soon cease to do that. She has put up with more than any woman I have ever known would and I have known some who put up with a lot of bad behavior.

    of course, one of the things wrong with our culture is that we force people to lie about affairs and such. Whereas in Europe or wherever it’s just like “ok so he wants to be Carlos Danger in the bedroom who cares”.

    This ‘weiner’ will continue to lie since he has been able to get away w/ this very immoral behavior over and over. People that support his run for mayor, or anything else he may do in the future, are either naive or fools.
