When Rep. Anthony Weiner gave a press conference about tweet where he sent a young college girl a photo of his
His expression of shame was consistent as he continued to look down when he spoke. Then his shame turned to
sadness as you can see by the downturn of his lips. He also had extreme anger as you can see by the muscle tension in his lower jaw. He is so angry that the muscle literally bulging out.
His anger continued as he refused to answer questions . He was asked point-blank if he sent the tweet to the college student and refused to answer. He was even pressed to just answer yes or no . He refused to do so and became angrier as you can see in the photo above.
Her we see him pull on his nose , which is a classic signal of deception. He did this just before he tried to spin a lame story. He said that if someone in an audience threw a pie at him, he wouldn’t address it and draw attention to it. He was trying to make the analogy to his particular embarrassing situation but it didn’t work.
The press told him that this was not the same situation and insisted on his giving a yes or no answer/ He refused to do so an became more defensive and more angry.
When people become defensive and angry and refuse to answer direct questions, it usually means they have something to hide. Clearly, no one hacked his account and clearly he sent the embarrassing photo to the college student.
Obviously, he was trying to impress the girl and show her that she turned him on by showing her the budge in his undies. What slipped his mind was that as a public figure, everything he does is public including his tweets. But the most important thing that slipped his mind
was that he was MARRIED! What is a married 46-year-old doing tweeting a photo of his erect crotch to a possible teenager or 20-year-old? While this is bad enough, his evasiveness and deception are making things worse for him. It will not be tolerated by the public.
Lying is what almost got Clinton impeached. He lied about “having sex with that woman Ms. Lewinsky”. Unlike Clinton, Weiner needs to be truthful and admit his shameful error in judgement. If he doesn’t do it, the bad news is that he may get voted out of office. But if he does get voted out of office it may open other doors for him, like his own television show.
Look at Elliott Spitzer, former married Governor of NY who did something even worse. He took up with prostitutes and look where it got him. It got him his own show on CNN. Since Weiner has friends in the media who have powerful positions, he could easily get his own segment on his buddy Jon Stewart’s Daily Show or even his own spin off. www.drlillianglass.com
