“I am not going to be on the ballot anytime,” Weiner, 56, said. The former Democratic politician has come back as the CEO of a company that produces countertops out of shattered glass.
Wearing a hard hat and face mask, Weiner — whose continued sexting cost him his political career and later got him sitting in prison — took the outlet on a tour of IceStone’s factory in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and specified how he’s changed.
“I’m an embodiment of the idea that people sometimes redefine themselves,” he said.“We don’t want to be judged by our worst moments,” Weiner added. “We want to be judged by whether we get up from those worst moments.”
Now a working stiff, Weiner — who left his seat in Congress after he inadvertently tweeted a lewd crotch shot of himself — announced he’s no longer on social media and has abandoned “a lot of bad habits,” while taking things “one day at a time.”
Two years after he quit Congress, Weiner mounted a mayoral campaign that was demolished amid a second sexting gossip while he was still married to Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin — a flub that exposed his use of the online alias “Carlos Danger.”
Asked about Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration, Weiner said it’s a “tough job” but that he thinks he would have done better in the office.
He also shared that his ex-wife is still serving with Clinton on a podcast — and smoothed off suggestions that he’d had a round in helping President Trump win the 2016 election.
During the presidential race, FBI agents seized Weiner’s laptop as part of that probe and claimed emails exchanged by Clinton and Abedin.
President Trump said that Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” reminds him of Anthony Weiner’s infamous laptop, which cost Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and later sent Weiner to jail.
Trump named Joe Biden “corrupt” at a huge rally in Prescott, Ariz., regarding the emails from a hard drive involving the Democratic presidential candidate in his son’s overseas dealings.
“Joe Biden is always and has been a corrupt politician, and as far as I’m concerned the Biden family is a criminal enterprise,” Trump said.
“If you read this laptop, I tell you what, this is called the laptop from hell. The only laptop that was almost as good, maybe worse, was the laptop of Anthony Weiner. Remember that? Ding-ding-ding-ding. He got hacked too.”
