He’s done it again. Anthony Weiner, the former congressman and New York City mayoral candidate was sending direct messages on Twitter about massage parlors with a “40-something divorcee” and Trump supporter on July 31, 2015.
To make matters even worse, he sent a picture of himself with his son next to him sleeping, with the caption:
“Someone just climbed into my bed.”
To which, the women responded, “You do realize you can see you[r] Weiner in that pic??” He then wrote:”Ooooooh . . . I was scared. For half a second I thought I posted something. Stop looking at my crotch.” His response is eerily similar to the same mistake he made that resulted in his resignation from Congress in 2011.

Not surprisingly, he then responded by stating that he and the woman “have been friends for some time […] She has asked me not to comment except to say that our conversations were private, often included pictures of her nieces and nephews and my son and were always appropriate.”
Since then, however, Weiner’s Twitter account is no longer active, according to Politico. After this whole fiasco, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton and a vice-chair of her campaign and Weiner’s wife, publicly stated that she and Weiner are separating.
