Clintons Upset at Being Compared to Anthony Weiner

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.

“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.

    "“How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.”

    At the time, she was merely the cuckold wife of the former Governor of Arkansas. Her entire career since then has rested on the foundation of her agreement to stay married to Bill and to endure the public humiliations that entails. Huma is clearly following in her footsteps. Like Hillary, she probably also hoped that one scandal would chasten her man, and was privately forced to admit that he was not capable of keeping it in his pants (or limiting its excursions to her pant suits).

    Yeah, plus Bill actually managed to get laid. Compared to that, Wiener is a bit of an amateur.
