Skip to comments.Anthony Weiner Cries Because There’s Nothing Left For Him To Do

Weiner cannot be incarcerated for long enough to punish him for what he's done.
Former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D HELL), was sentenced to 21 months in prison for sexting an underage teen and asking her to perform sexual acts on Skype and Snapchat.
The New York Daily News published a fairly arresting courtroom sketch of his sentencing:
While crying and grabbing tissue after tissue, Weiner asked for probation for his crimes. From the NYDN:
I victimized a young person who deserved better, Weiner said in court. I am not asking that I be trusted I ask you for the opportunity on probation to keep my sworn oath.
Judge Denise Cote was unmoved. This was a serious crime, and its a serious crime that deserves serious punishment, she said.
The 21-month sentence seems the least we can do to punish Anthony Weiner. People have been very focused on the political fallout from his behavior, but lets not lose sight of the actual victim here. Anthony Weiner did not fall for jail bait. Weiner sexted a 15-year-old, AFTER he knew she was 15, and encouraged her to perform sexually explicit acts for his enjoyment. His conduct was gross and CLEARLY criminal. This is not about a famous man sending dick-pics out into the ether. This is about a 53-year-old man having an illicit relationship with a known 15-year-old. This is Humbert Humbert with a smartphone. It is not okay.
But I mean Jesus the political fallout from Anthony Weiners behavior is MASSIVE when you think about it. You dont have to believe in chaos theory to draw the line here: if Anthony Weiner does NOT sext a 15-year-old, Hillary Clinton IS PROBABLY the first woman president. James Comey is probably still the director of the F.B.I. The government is protecting itself from foreign influence in our elections, instead of trying to pretend that it never happened. Were not at war with North Korea.
Can you make an argument that all these things would have happened anyway? Sure. But as proximate causes go, Anthony Weiner is one hell of a Long Island Railroad employee.
Anthony Weiners penis is the Archduke Ferdinand of this timeline. His masturbatory fantasies are now in the Pantheon of historical what ifs.
He should be crying. We all should be crying. Anthony Weiner was sentenced for engaging in sexually explicit behavior with an underage girl. But Weiner sentenced America to 248 days (and counting) of total incompetence. He is a monster.
Must have taken Chuckie Shumer crying lessons!
Let’s just hope Wiener’s future cellmate will be of comfort.
I’m sure that the little prick will find himself all kinds of new play mates over the coming months.
Former Congressman Anthony Weiner - Democrat...I hear likes reading, long walks, and tossing salad, should enjoy his time in the slammer, there will be lots and lots of sex, he may not like it, BUTT there will sex.
And the kleenex box is smoking.
Hope he can stick it out in prison.
He'll be protected because of his fame and his friends.Nobody will be able to touch him...literally at least.
Do judges always have a box of kleenex ready for crybabies?
Maybe he should have taken a knee in protest when the judge walked in and the bailiff stated “All Rise”! I’m sure that would have gotten him some sympathy...
Wait until his first gang of BBC’s and he’ll cry again.
Dang, Weiner’s arm blocked the court sketch artist’s view of the Perp. Now that would have been a sketch.
Weiner is a big wimp.
Twenty-one months of jail time may seem light to some, but it is not for a normal person. Another thing to consider is that, IMHO, Weiner will not have a successful probation. He will likely be returned to jail. Early in my career I defended some clients accused of minor sex crimes, like exposure and such. I recall a judge once saying at a sentencing, “I wish you well, but I know you will be back. People like you never really change.” Lo, he was right, and many of the clients I represented came back again and again.
I’m not saying he deserved less; but having a judge named Denise all but sealed his fate.
He really needed Sigmund Freud.
PS: Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar....
Follow the advice that has taken you this far, when in doubt, whip it out.
That’s how real man takes his just punishment for crimes committed.
He cries, with a little tissue to wipe his yes.
Way to go, Antknee!
So you’re saying that he, upon release, should try to move to SF, and fit into the city’s citizenry?
