GQ speaks to Anthony Weiner about his failed attempt at a political comeback and the stress it put on his marriage with Huma Abedin.
Said Weiner: “One thing I’m grateful for is that now I’m under no obligation to answer anything like this. But we’ve had a very rough time. It causes me a great deal of pain in the way she gets reported and the way she gets discussed. Her treatment in the press has been rough. It pains me because I deserve it. She doesn’t.”
“I duck it as best I can, but her reputation has become the Woman Who Married an Idiot and Stuck with Him. More of it rolls off my back, because that’s the way I am constitutionally. She’s more sensitive. I’m just an empty, soulless vessel, so it doesn’t hurt me as much.”Save to Favorites
