Huma Abedin faces backlash for standing by her man

‘Some of us are trying to raise our girls to be more than voiceless partners sucking up their pride as their husbands trample over their dignity,’ Lisa Bloom, a legal analyst and author, wrote in a scathing opinion piece on CNN.com.

Tasha Kheiriddin wrote in the National Post that Abedin’s decision to stand by Anthony Weiner is ‘like a slap in the face to legions of successful women.’

‘It also represents a green light to spouses who not only stray, but humiliate their partners in the process,’ she added. ‘Huma Abedin, you can do so much better.’

Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh called Abedin a ‘doormat’ for supporting Weiner and compared her to Hillary Clinton. Abedin has been a close aide to Clinton for two decades.

‘Her loyalty is to Hillary Clinton and her role model is Hillary Clinton,’ Limbaugh said. ‘Doormats. Doormats with the promise of a payoff later down the road.’

Abedin stood next to Weiner during his press conference Tuesday and smiled as he tried to explain new revelations about sexually-charged messages that he had sent to another woman.

‘Our marriage, like many others, has had its ups and its downs,’ Abedin said. ‘It took a lot of work and a whole lot of therapy to get to a place where I could forgive Anthony.’

Abedin said she made the decision to stay in their marriage for herself, her son and her family.

But a friend of Abedin’s told the Wall Street Journal, ‘She’s not the “good wife.”‘ The friend said the latest revelations about her husband’s contact with another woman online came as no surprise to her. ‘If she had found out yesterday she wouldn’t have been standing there,’ the source said.

Many critics accused Abedin of continuing to support her husband’s campaign because she has political aspirations of her own.

‘They are that power hungry that she stands there and she accepts the absolute disgracefulness of serial cheating from her husband,’ political media strategist Adam Weiss told the New York Post. ‘Huma comes from the Clinton school of forgiveness — power is more important than dignity.’

Others surmised that the so-called ‘Clinton school of forgiveness’ would work to Abedin’s benefit.

‘Money can’t buy the kind of political boost Huma Abedin is receiving. Like her mentor Hillary Clinton, the stand-by-your-man strategy will be her gateway to widespread popularity and respect,’ Thomas Lifson wrote in The American Thinker.

Meanwhile, New York Times reporter Nate Silver and Daily Beast editor-in-chief Tina Brown said they thought she should run for mayor instead of her husband.

‘Huma should have run for mayor; she’d win in a landslide,’ Silver tweeted.

Brown tweeted, ‘I say Huma for mayor – she has all the qualities he doesn’t.’
