Weiner’s new campaign ad that was released online late Tuesday night, seems nothing short of ludicrous. Even if you don’t like the guy, you can’t help but feel embarrassed for him because he acts as if his past behavior is not an issue. “Fox and Friends” live on Wednesday morning, July 31, had all three anchors, Steve Doocy, Alyson Camerota and Brian Kilmeade cracking up with laughter during the few times a clip was shown of Weiner’s new campaign ad. Weiner insists he’s not going anywhere, he’s in the race for NYC mayor to the finish.
According to NY1 News on Wednesday, Weiner has dropped to fourth place in the NYC race for mayor. This very odd-acting politician conveys in the ad that it would be a disservice for all New Yorkers if he were to follow the suggestions of the other candidates and media and pull out of the race. Weiner says in this new campaign ad:
“Quit isn’t the way we roll in New York City. We fight through tough things, we are a tough city. There are people all around the city with a tough day ahead of them and they don’t quit,” Weiner said. “But it’s really not about the campaign and it’s not about the candidates and it’s not about me. This is about helping New Yorkers because they understand this is about them.”
Well New Yorkers know quit isn’t in his vocabulary because when he promised to “quit” sexing, this New Yorker just couldn’t do it. He continued with his bizarre online sexual antics after leaving Congress, despite his promises to his wife and his political followers. Weiner is pulling his wife in on this and it just makes them both look foolish as a couple. While the word denial has been used to the point of saturation during the last two decades, this is the best and only way to describe this man’s mindset.
He is in deep denial because he really doesn’t seem to see that there’s a problem and that many people have had it with him. He continues to push himself down the throats of folks that he doesn’t give enough credit to for seeing right through him. He’s basically told New Yorkers, hey, I have forgiven myself, my wife’s forgiven me, so it’s a done deal. Now the rest of the world needs to follow suit.
He’s not asking for votes, he is almost demanding them. Even if a sexting scandal never occurred, his arrogance is a big turn off for many. He demands his scandal be buried and basically demands New Yorkers vote for him. He also groups himself in with New Yorkers saying New Yorkers understand that he wants to help them.
Where does someone conjure up enough self-importance to say if they quit, it would be a huge disservice to New Yorkers. What? This appears to be a man who thinks an awful lot about himself. He seems to have his wife signed on to his own delusion of being a very special politician above the rest.
