Stephen Colbert Just Ended Any Chance For An Anthony Weiner Comeback
“It’s time to cut off that Weiner”
By now, you’ve all likely heard of the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal. No, not the first one. Nope, not even the second. As of this week, the world is now on its third (and likely final) Weiner scandal.
On Monday, Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin, right-hand woman of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, announced she would be leaving her husband effective immediately. She said in a statement,
“After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband. Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy.”
Her words were much more kind than those of social media users, political pundits, and comedians around the globe. While most people shared their true disgust with the entire situation, late night host Stephen Colbert was particularly thankful for the once respected former congressman’s downfall.
“August is a notoriously slow news month, and it can be hard for me to find stuff to talk about. Fortunately, something popped up: Anthony Weiner,” Colbert says in a video titled “It’s time to cut off that Weiner.” The host added, “I just want to extend my thanks to him for rising to the occasion with this truly rock solid story.”
