Fool Me Once, Shame On You. Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me: Thoughts On Anthony Weiner And Human Abedin

There is an old saying: fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

After six years, one child and being humiliated for the final time by her husband’s public sexting, Huma Abedin has finally separated from her husband, ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner.

Girl, what took you so long?

I get it, truly I do. Sexual addiction is a real disease. Does Anthony Weiner have a real addiction or he simply making up for something else that is missing in his life? I don’t know that.

I see it this way. We are all human, we all make mistakes and we all have our failings. That is perfectly normal. However, a line has to be drawn somewhere. If the mistake is made once, it could possibly be forgiven. If the same mistake is made over and over, something is not right.

Whether the separation was initiated by Huma or by someone in Hillary Clinton’s camp (she has been an aide to Hillary Clinton for two decades and if things go as hoped, she could become one of the most powerful women in America), only those on the inside know.

Human Abedin is educated, very smart and obviously very capable of standing on her own two feet. The problem is that despite our accomplishments, women are still being told that the end goal in life is marriage. Women like Huma Abedin don’t need a partner to prop them up or make them feel accomplished. But they told that they still a man.

At the end of the day, the person I feel sorry for is her little boy. He may need a heavy dose of therapy in the future.

Enjoy the rest of your night.
