Huma Abedin has had a tough week. After the admission that Huma’s husband disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner was “sexting” with strangers came the news that Huma is pregnant. Yes, totally bad timing on the baby making front. The very private Huma, who has been thrust into the spotlight, needs the support her friends and family now more than ever. And there is one woman very close to Huma that won’t just be a shoulder to cry on but can give her meaningful insight on what it’s like to live through your husband’s sex scandal and not just attempt but to actually keep the family together. That woman is Hilary Clinton.
Huma Abedin doesn’t just work for the Hilary Clinton, she is considered to be part of the Clinton family. Bill Clinton even jokes about her being his second daughter, as does Hilary. “She thinks of Huma like another daughter,” a source said of Hilary. “It just kills Hillary to see her friend and longtime key staff member be so horribly humiliated like that.” Huma’s husband Anthony Weiner i- n the midst of trying to do damage control – even called Bill Clinton and apologizing for his actions, since the two families have such close ties with Bill even officiated at their wedding. Jon Stewart poked fun at the apology from Weiner to Clinton who had his own scandals saying that Weiner really should have apologized for “copyright infringement”
But with these similar stories of a powerful politician going outside the marriage to try to quench their sexual thirst, Huma has a wise confidant in Hilary. “What makes this all so uncomfortable for Hillary is how this again reminds people — as if they needed reminding — about Bill and the Monica Lewinsky scandal,” a source said. “Yes, it’s very different, but it’s another case of a top politician doing something wrong that involves the subject of sex.” But Hilary survived the scandal and will be able to offer a strong first person perspective on how to deal with it.
Not many can relate to what Huma is going through right now, so she really is fortunate to be close to someone who can. Hilary Clinton stuck by her man and kept their family together. She will no doubt encourage Huma to do the same, for the sake of their marriage and their baby.
Do you think Huma will stick around? Would you?
