Rep. Anthony Weiner Struggles to Explain Origin of Lewd Twitter Photo
Fox News ^ | 6-2-11

Posted on 06/02/2011 3:59:47 PM PDT by Justaham

Rep. Anthony Weiner struggled to explain how a picture of somebody's bulging underwear briefly appeared on his Twitter account, claiming in a back-to-back string of interviews that he was clearly hacked -- but hinting the photograph could have been an image of him.

"I have photographs. I don't know what photographs are out there in the world of me," he said in one cable news interview, asked whether he'd ever snapped a photo like that of himself.

In another interview, Weiner acknowledged "it could be" the case that one of his private photos spilled onto the Internet. Or, he said, one could have been manipulated or pulled in from "somewhere else."

Talking briefly to reporters outside his office Thursday morning, the congressman made clear he was not interested in sitting down for more questions. "I made it very clear I did not send that picture, that my Twitter account had been hacked, and the prank apparently has been successful. But after hours, almost 11 hours of answering questions ... today, I'm going to have to get back to work," Weiner said.

In interview after interview Wednesday, Weiner insisted he did not send the photo but at the same time could not say whether the photo was his. Asked by Fox News about the origin of the image, Weiner said: "We're concerned about saying anything definitively."

Asked the same question again, Weiner snapped: "You know ... we've been sitting down for a brief moment and you're already asking if there are pictures of me in my drawers."

Maybe I lead a dull life, but I don't have a single picture of my johnson stuffed underwear.

When asked about the offending weiner, Weiner’s attorney, Oscar Meyer, declined comment but did hum a tune for reporters.

Latest rumor is that Barney Frank set this guy up. Apparently Weiner always rubbed him the wrong way.

Frank...Weiner...hahahaha. Seriously though, you would think that Weiner's defense team would take a hard line on this. He will need to stiffen his privacy settings on his Twitter account so these things don't rise again.

Sorry but the jokes just write themselves.

Of course I have pictures of me in a bathing suit, but have you seen the photo at issue? Some guy took his own picture looking down on just his briefs and bulge. Now, that’s weird. I sure don’t have one of those.

Raise your hands, all who do not know if there are pictures of your aroused privates out there in the world.

Looks like he’s been Alinsky-ied. Someone “picked it, froze it, polaroid-ed it, and publicized it” and now “pranked” it.

Actually, I think Weiner knows who took the pix and why. Maybe its a coup by the Hldabeast to get Huma back. After all, Huma must be tired of hummin’ the weiner and needs to get back to her favorite carpet.

Or, he said, one could have been manipulated or pulled in from "somewhere else."

Someone is manipulating Weiner or pulling Weiner in from somewhere else? Is that really the long and short of it?

Any Weiner questions should be directed to the Big Weiner himself.

Ask for Rep. Anthony Weiner.

“He’s done politically...no possibility to run a campaign with this ridcule..”

Remember the early Freeper days, when Freepers would FedEx a giant cigar costume back and forth across the nation, to be worn by Freepers at various Clinton speeches?

We should do the same. Maybe hold up gray boxers wherever Weiner speaks....or print out the photo and hold it up as a sign when he speaks. Or nail a pair of gray boxers to a sign and hold it up.

Talk about unnerving. LOL

The poor guy cannot admit anything or Huma will divorce him. What do you bet Huma has an attorney? Little Anthony and his weiner are sleeping on the couch.

His response is always ..”I did not send that picture ..

Seems as if one reporter would have the brains to ask ...

Do you know who might have sent the picture or did you in any way cause the picture to be sent?

Also, he makes comment about that he does not have time for this as so much needs to be done. Well, does that mean he does not have time to twitter from now on???

The reason Weiner is not absolutely denying that the photo is of him is because he probably has sent that photo or others similar to it to other young women he had been following on Twitter, and he knows that the recipients of his other “bulging crotch” photos could suddenly release the photos, thus torpedoing any prior denials of his. He would then definitely be exposed as aliar, causing a hard landing for him, a divorce and subsequent resignation from the House.

You’re right the puns have gotten completely out of hand. It’s such a shame that meatier issues are being ignored just because this cocky idiot hung himself. But we all know media won’t get off this subject until the jerk unloads. Weiner’s camp needs to quit stroking his ego and pump Huma for information so we can put the matter to bed.

The appropriate use of u-trou for the purpose of ridicule is to wear it on your head. It's the American way.
