Now I don't know for sure if he's planning to do just that, if he beats the impending sexual misconduct charges he has allegedly earned in which he sexted and engaged in a graphic online relationship with an underage girl, but the first time Anthony got bagged for showing his baggage, he ran for Mayor of New York City.
What would be so crazy for him, now that he's really in deep poo, to run for President of the United States of America?
Look at who he'd be running against. A felon whose husband has bedded more women than an ISIS leader with a bevy of sex slaves, or a guy who says on an open mic something akin to: 'you grab them by the p***y and kiss them because they let you do that to them when you're famous'.
I don't think Weiner would win, but he'd certainly attract the #NeverHillary and #NeverTrump voters. Especially the #NeverHillaryNorTrump voters. They may have been planning to either not vote at all, or vote for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein.
But Johnson and Stein are falling so low in the polls that soon they will have to look up in order to look down. They will be able to play handball off the curb.
So maybe to some folks, Weiner may be the way to go.
He can have a cool slogan. Instead of "Make America Great Again," or "Stronger Together," his slogan can be: "Weiner Won't Let You Down" or "This Weiner Won't Quit." Of course he could make use of Hillary's book, Hard Choices, and use some variation of the title to his advantage. (Suggestions are welcome.)
In any case, Weiner probably has his hands full with his current problem with the law, or some variation of that. He is likely facing laws against "promoting the sexual performance of a minor," if the FBI gets the goods on him.
But there's always 2020 to look forward to, if he isn't serving time elsewhere.
