There has never been a man more appropriately named than Anthony Weiner.
The former husband of Hillary Clinton top aide Huma Abedin has done time for salacious behavior with minors.
Now a free man, he has somehow managed to get Curtis Sliwa to partner with him for a new radio program.
The new odd couple recently sat down with Sean Hannity, and Weiner did little to convince anyone he is a changed man.
Hannity asked Weiner a question that could have gotten his new career off to a better start, but instead, he baffled everyone.
Hannity asked him if he had changed after spending 18 months behind bars.
Was he a different person now?
Weiner responded, “Well, um, I think so.
“I don’t think anyone can go through that kind of experience — and I think this is probably true of people who have been through other types of adversity — I don’t think you go through that type of experience and don’t emerge changed.”
How about just saying I was a scumbag and yes, I have changed for the better.
Hannity called him out immediately for the answer, stating, “Either you know in your heart if you’ve changed, or you know in your heart if you didn’t change.
“Can you assure people? Because you’re going to now try and draw in an audience, and they’re going to want to know if you changed or not. Have you changed?”
Weiner then became defiant, stating, “I’m not out to persuade you or anyone else that I’ve changed.
“I mean, I’m doing a radio show and people can call and ask me questions.
“We did one this past Saturday where people had an opportunity to call in and where Curtis asked me a bunch of questions and I asked and answered the best I can.
“But in terms of like, I’m trying to draw someone, you know, I’m not trying to make someone like me or someone be persuaded of any particular outlook on me.
“We’re going to have some conversations about things going on in New York City and other places, and hopefully, people will tune in to the show. But I’m not terribly interested in trying to make them feel any differently about me,”
When Hannity challenged him again, saying that he would have expected someone coming out of that experience to be a bit more “repentant” with a more “heartfelt” apology or statement, Weiner continued his defiance, stating, “I don’t know what to tell you.”
The new radio show is called “The Left vs. The Right.”
As mentioned above, his partner is Curtis Sliwa, the founder of the “Magnificent 13,” later renamed the “Guardian Angels.”
Sliwa also ran for the mayor of New York as a Republican, losing to Eric Adams, often warning everyone that Adams was not the man he was pretending to be for the election.
