Why doesn't Huma realize Weiner just isn't into her?
I'm assuming the Weiner/Abedin union is not entirely political.
His sexual desire is elsewhere, directed towards conventionally bimbo-ish women. Are females not bothered or hurt when their husbands idealize and pursue an entirely different type of woman?
You learn to deal.
Maybe she's not that into him back or she doesn't consider it real cheating, or isn't a jealous type. Beats me.
These are two professional politicians. The most reasonable explanation is that they are naive.
Not difficult at all. She is not interested in sex with him either. If she had not been embarrassed, she would not care. Power interests her.
He's the wrong horse, honey. Time to count losses; he got caught on purpose.
Not sure how old Huma is (I can look it up) but maybe she had no luck in finding a husband and when Weiner came into her life she liked him a lot and thought he might be her last chance at finding a husband, and perhaps she wanted a baby.
I think she is very attractive and very striking. And obviously quite intelligent.
Huma is 36/37, Weiner is 48.
Huma's dad was Indian and her mom is Pakistani, but Huma looks 100% Saudi to me.
If she is 36 or 37, that explains why she may have been anxious to have a baby within the last year (and anxious to get married) - to have a baby before she gets too old to have one.
Many political marriages, like those in Hollywood, are not focused on a hot sexual connection.
She plays Lindsay Vonn to his Tiger Woods.
The bigger question is, why did he marry? He's clearly not into being a decent husband.
Can you blame Huma for not wanting to hump that thing on a regular basis?
he's mentally ill...he's like those guys in rain coats who used to flash people....now they stay home and do it online.
Those Weiner threads are truly Frau Magnets.
He's not entirely straight. (Neither, i suspect, is she.)
He pinged to high heaven when I first met him years ago.
Will not be surprised if it turns out he sent pics to these nearly random women to compensate for something else.
I think the US public would find it far harder to accept the more likely truth (that she genuinely doesn't care as long as he's not actually fucking these women) than to accept the politically-expedient distortion that she's the heartbroken victim of a cheater. If his behaviour was really a shock to her, or a deal-breaker, she'd have walked by now.
R16 It's not based on anything, certainly not wishful thinking, but I suspect he's not entirely straight, either.
One of Tiger Woods' girls discussed him being bi, but that got brushed under the rug by the media.
These sexuality compulsive types would fuck anyone.

I'm sure you're right about that.
She probably doesn't care because she has some side action of her own. Only she's not stupid enough to get caught.
Hasn't she been rumored to be a lesbian since, oh, forever? And, according to his sexts, he doesn't mind MMF scenes that involve good looking guys? You do the math...
Huma isn't as intelligent as people claim. At least Hillary, her benefactress, invested in a winning sleazebag.
I thought she and Hilary had been together for years?
Does he send these messages to men as well as women?
She doesn't care if he is into her, she is into being the wife of a mayor, get it OP?
R25, Many wives don't expect sexual fidelity from their husbands. In fact it's a rare occurrence in many foreign countries, especially among the wealthy or powerful. Do you think that Prince Phillip only sleeps with Queen Elizabeth?
[quote]Do you think that Prince Phillip only sleeps with Queen Elizabeth?
I have a hard time picturing anyone sleeping with either of them voluntarily, much less each other.
"Many wives don't expect sexual fidelity from their husbands."
Maybe not, but they also don't want to see his weenball on screens all over the world. Technology and Twitter have changed the dynamic.
Tony could have kept things on the downlow, but Tony is an exhibitionist and that's not how he gets his thrills.
I never knew she was very close campaign aid to Hillary Clinton.
I think she has political ambitions and will stay with him regardless of his actions....
They are both high-functioning narcissistic sociopaths and they feed off each other's sturm und drang.
OMG he looks like a plucked chicken. I took a look at one of his photographs and had to be revived by medics.
They're the couple from House of Cards.
Females are attracted to this in men. Maybe not consciously, and not the exact traits, but part of his personality that is narcissistic and insecure and needing someone to compliment his penis in very exaggerated ways, is part of the same package of dark personality traits that give him appeal as a politician and husband.
My source says: Huma's devout Muslim parents did NOT approve of her lesbianism and insisted that she marry a man or she would find herself in dire straits. In a calculated rage she told them she would marry--and she married Weiner, a Jew. She never loved him but the extent of his sloppiness with his indiscretions is what has caused tension. Everything Huma does is calculated (she has been taught by masters) and she will figure out (if she has not already) how this situation can work out to her benefit.
r34 I think you are spot on.
He's an asshole and so lucky to have her, because she's beautiful AND smart, not an easy combo to find.
And he looks like an old pussy with bug eyes, aside from being a cheating total creep.
And yet people in NYC will still vote for Weiner.
Yes R37, yes we will. Because he's the best potential mayor for this city (assuming you're a left leaning liberal democrat like I am.)
I'm very angry at him for bringing this bullshit on himself AGAIN; and listening to all the judgmental news assholes makes me kind of sick, but if he's still in the running come November, I do believe he will win because of the issues.
If my husband was a cheating dog, I'd tell him to go play safely with a pro or sext with another consenting adult. It is the guys who "fall in love" with a coworker just to get the their dick wet who truly hurt others . Maybe Houma prefers it this way?
r37, the liberal answer to my country, right or wrong...
@37. I think he is toast.
I'm not a New Yorker, or even an American, for that matter and I don't understand all this hand wringing and parochial moralizing over his sexting. He and his wife have a relationship which may not be one that makes sense to you and me but if she's OK with that, who cares? Does he have a history of political affairs, shady deals, corruption, misappropriation of public funds or anything like that? Can he really be blackmailed now that everybody knows his kinks? Was he running on a platform pushing family values? If not, so what. If he can do a good job as the mayor, isn't that all that counts?
R42 it all comes down to his using spectacularly bad judgment. Leadership is based on good judgment. This isnt about sex.
right... he looks like a joke now.
He's definitely toast, but the piece of shit will try to pop up elsewhere.
Huma is beautiful and intelligent and extremely elegant. Straight men admire women like that but find them intimidating. The fact she's a Muslim probably spooks a lot of guys. Let's face it, straight men like dumb broads they can feel superior to.
I think he pursued her for her connection to the Clintons. As an ambitious politician, he needed the Clinton machine to advance. I think she was probably taken in by a guy who probably pursued her relentlessly (rather like he seems to pursue any woman) unlike the more intellectual guys in her usual entourage.
She's got a kid with him so she's stuck, but I think she'll dump him in time to get back into Hillary's 2016 campaign.
He IS a joke, but he sure loves the attention.
I think R30 and R34 are both spot on. Obviously they both have individual end goals and see (saw) one another for whatever reason as being a means to an end.
Why are we so sure Huma is a lesbian? She doesn't even ping. Just wondering. The Hillary thing may have been a smear campaign.
She married him to stop the rumors of her and Hill, so they could have a cover for their relationship. If Hill wins in '16, Huma will be Chief of Staff and they can hide in plain sight.
I agree with R32, that the Weiners are like the couple in House of Cards. But Weiner turned out to be Peter Russo instead of Francis Underwood.
Perhaps because he really is into her but needs other sexual stimulation, like, you know, a lot of people do?
what, like madonna/whore syndrome R51?
Do you really want a perv as mayor? He's not even a clever perv who could maintain it underground and deeply hidden during the second go around. He's the reckless and obvious seedy guy in the seedy car in the mall parking-lot flashing random women when he stops and asks for directions. Extremely poor impulse control. He's an obvious mental case screaming out to the world that he's a mental case. And this is your future mayor?!?
Was Huma responsible for Hillary's badly run campaign?
I ask this because there may be poor judgment on behalf of them as a couple.
I have no interest in either of htem as human beings and you bet your bippy she has put up with this for her own advancement.
Another step forward, with two steps backward, for women in America.
You can't really compare Clinton's bad choices/judgment to Weiner's, IMO.
Clinton didn't even send incriminating emails, much less dick pics. He only really got caught because Lewinsky decided to keep a cum-stained dress as a bargaining tool. Cunt didn't get what she wanted and sold out to the Rethugs.
It's not random women. These are adult chat sites right? I'm actually shocked that there are real women who frequent them
Let it go, Bill/r55.
R55, you are so wrong, it's scary. Ever hear of Linda Tripp? Lewinsky didn't sell out at all - she wanted to protect Clinton.
He never met them in person so it's random women. That is as far as we know They're women. It could be anybody at all behind a pilfered photo.
I will never believe Huma and Hillary were chomping on each other. She may or may not be a dyke but I'm sure Hillary wouldn't be hot to her.
Also Huma & Weiny were together for a long time before they got married. They kept it a secret for a while, then came out with it, etc. I don't knew about nationally, but people in NY knew all about it. It might be political but it's not thrown together out of nowhere.
Also it's not about not being into Huma. Clearly Weiner gets off on the idea of random women he doesnt know looking at his dic pics. Hardly a role Huma could play. That he has a kink or fetish that doesn't include her doesn't mean he isn't also crazy about her. Adult sexuality is complex, junior OP.
Except that his activities constituted a bit more than a mere fetish. He was spending up to a couple hours a day sexting and having phone sex with these women, also emailing with them and exchanging photos. With more than one at once, during the height of his situation.
He's got a bit more than a fetish going on here. Otherwise I'd agree with your post r61. And his behavior was disrespectful and hurtful to her, yet he kept it up even after he was found out and she initially forgave him.
it isn't a fetish....it is a compulsion....he feels he must do it for some deep psychological reason.
[quote]Lewinsky didn't sell out at all - she wanted to protect Clinton.
Of course. That's why, instead of dry cleaning the dress, she used it to attempt to destroy a sitting president.
Dumb cunt. It worked out well for her. She's still a joke and her name a euphemism for cocksucking. Bill Clinton is respected throughout the world.
Fuck off, Log Cabin recidivist.
Turns out all the folks who thought Weiner was no were right.
This was in another thread:
"what like madonna whore syndrome, r51?"
No. Like a realization that many human beings crave sexual stimulation from more than one person, and that there is nothing really wrong about that except what are social conditioning - including our madonna/whore complexes - tells us is wrong about it. One doesn't have to see one's significant partner as a saint to truly love and be into that person. And one can truly love and be into one's partner and still want other sexual stimulation, and not think of those who one finds it with in a dehumanizing way as whores or sluts; but rather as other human beings like yourself who like to fuck.
Liking to fuck isn't a bad thing.
RE: r64 Dumb cunt. It worked out well for her. She's still a joke and her name a euphemism for cocksucking. Bill Clinton is respected throughout the world.
You are a chauvinist even if you are a gay man.
We all were lied to on television.
How many more times is Weiner going to humiliate his family before they all tell him to get lost?
r68, they want to win at any cost. Read other posts here...
I just think that no matter what marriage they had, it's pretty dead at this point.
At the press conference, she looked so miserable and she said they had a LOT of therapy. I wonder if it was really her choice to speak up.
Now some people are questioning how she is able to keep her job with clinton and work as a consultant at the same time, probably some conflict there. She makes over 350K at that consultant job, where the clintons are on the board of. I think she makes 100K at her main job? He makes 0. She should just dump him, he's a dead weight.
He was sexting while they were dating, he ain't never gonna stop.
She could do so much better.
RE: He was sexting while they were dating, he ain't never gonna stop.
Agree. I think he thinks this is not cheating and is just play and "showing off"
If she is ambitious, she should dump him, the guy doesn't even have a law degree, his options are quite limited. He needs her more than she needs him. She's gonna go to the white house with Hillary.
And he will continue to embarrass her in future, why give your enemies ammunition to use against you?
[quote]At the press conference, she looked so miserable and she said they had a LOT of therapy. I wonder if it was really her choice to speak up.
Brings back thoughts of Dina McGreevey when her husband made his "brave" announcement, "I am a gay American." She soon dropped his ass and wrote a book about the creep.
For straight men, big dick needs big pussy. The chick is too tight. You can squeeze more prayers into a crack in the Wailing Wall than you can into hers.
What does Huma actually DO for a living? Is she a policy person or a highly paid admin assistant? She hasn't had any employment or "consulting work" ever that isn't connected to the Clintons. But what the fuck does she do?
she's hillary's right hand. She supposedly regards Huma as a second daughter, that's what I read in the papers but who knows? can't really believe everything you read, can you?
Humn Abedin, the deputy chief of staff at the State Department under former Secretary Hillary Clinton, was granted status as a "special government employee" after the birth of her son.
That title allowed her to work from home as a part-time consultant to State, earning $135,000 as a government employee — while also earning $355,000 as a consultant for Teneo, where former President Bill Clinton is a board member.
-From the NY Post.
Is the consulting a fake patronage job? I can't figure out what her skill set is. Being Hillary's right hand and second daughter merits being profiled in magazines? The marriage to Weiner seems totally political, but what the hell is her end game? She wants to be connected to powerful people but not really do anything herself? Or is she a deeply involved policy and strategy person? Geez, I wouldn't even be thinking about this if all this dick nonsense hadn't started up again.
TY r78. Rank has it's privileges
r12 is very naive.
I don't get the marriage either.
Why did he need a powerful woman to marry?
part-time work from home that pays $135,000 per year - for the State Dept - what a sleazy racket and what a waste of taxpayer's money
while at the same time earning $355,000 per year from Teneco as a consultant - what in the world does she consult on?
Does Huma have political/business connections in the international world that others desire?
