Bill and Hillary Clinton are angry with efforts by mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner and his campaign to compare his Internet sexcapades — and his wife Huma Abedin’s incredible forgiveness — to the Clintons’ notorious White House saga, The Post has learned.Why would they be angry? Bill Clinton set the most recent standard for sexual sleaze for a President, and Hillary lost her feminists creds when she decided to stay. It's easier to stay with Bill, ride his coattails (or his fly) and move in political circles so that she could become a senator, a presidential candidate, and what was arguably the most horrific Secretary of State in modern history (can you say Benghazi).
“The Clintons are upset with the comparisons that the Weiners seem to be encouraging — that Huma is ‘standing by her man’ the way Hillary did with Bill, which is not what she in fact did,’’ said a top state Democrat.
If Hill had any self-respect at all, she would have left immediately after Monica wiped her chin. She didn't and now she and her philandering husband have set the standard for sleaze. All the Weiner's are doing is following that example, and calling attention to it. Why should the Dems shun the Weiner's when they continue to bow at the altar of Bill and Hill? It's a valid question, and a valid comparison.
From what little I know about Huma, she was Hill's aide for many, many years, learning at the feet of the master. Anthony and Huma are following the Clinton model. Bill and Hill should be proud. Emulation is the best compliment.
