As former Rep. Anthony Weiner let everyone know he was resigning, his monotone voice and body language said that he was insincere in his apology, He often pursed his lips as we see in this photo, which indicated that he really did not want to say that he was saying.
As she spoke he had a case of dry Cotton Mouth which indicated that he was very nervous and distressed about what he was doing in being forced to do- resign. When the President of the United States said that if he was in Weiner’s shoes he would resign, Weiner had no other choice then to follow suit.
When he read his resignation speech, he not only looked down, he bowed his head in shame. As she spoke, it as though he was delivering a campaign speech. There was no emotion and no indication of sincere contrition.
When his hecklers began shouting insults at him, he faced them directly and spoke over them in a loud voice in an attempt to drown out their hateful barbs.
Even though he took responsibility by saying that he could not continue his work because of what he created, it was said in harsh staccato angry tones. He was angry that he got caught. He was not sorry about what he did. He was angry that he got pressure from party leaders to resign. He would never have resigned if they had not urged him to do so.
Weiner still gets to keep his 50 K a month retirement pension which isn’t that bad considering his wife makes over 100 K. So he will not be on the streets or applying for food stamps. He may end up being a lot better off financially because of this scandal.
POSSIBLE JOBS FOR WEINER
He may even get his own TV show. Look at Spitzer who is on CNN . Weiner knows John Stewart very well so he may be a correspondent for his show. He was just offered a role on Entourage. In Hollywood his behavior is not such a bad thing. In fact it can make a career. Look at Kim Kardashian. She became famous becuase of a sex tape showcasing her booty.
Maybe he can be a spokesperson for erectile dysfunction products like Senator Bob Dole did. He can say how the products worked for him as they show the infamous photo of his privates. If all else fails, there is no doubt that Vivid Entertainment can offer him a million dollars to bear it all in an X rated film. They offered the same deal to Octomom . Actually Larry Flint offered Weiner a serious non porn job at Hustler.
The sad thing in all of this is that his wife Huma is pregnant . She was not at his side like Spitzer’s wife. In fact it was reported that she went grocery shopping while he was giving his speech. If he forgives him he may come out of this a winner. If she doesn’t forgive him he will have lost it all.
For their new baby’s sake I hope they get counseling and she is able to forgive him. Now that he has a lot of free time on his hands he will be able to be a househusband and care for his baby while Huma travels the glove with Hillary Clinton.
BIPOLAR II MIXED STATE?
Looking at the how Weiner comported himself in his communication in the past, he always seemed to be angry and have an edge. There was also a sense of entitlement and arrogance as well as hostility. There is no question that is most likely suffering from depression and severe anxiety attacks. He lost everything he worked for all of his life- his reputation and power. I wonder if Weiner has been diagnosed the mixed state of bipolar syndrome which would explain his behavior and his agitation.
I do hope that he gets professional help and if he is Biolar II Mixed State and he gets the medication and the therapy that can help him. I don’t believe that he is a sex addict. Instead I believe that he suffered from poor self esteem. He needed the adulation of these women admirers to tell him how great and sexy he was because he was insecure and had no self worth. He needed others to reflect his importance and prowess because he was so empty.
If he is diagnosed with Bipolar II Mixed State and treated and becomes stable, he needs to share this diagnosis with the public. Then he needs to become a spokesperson for Mental Health issues. Perhaps he can get a job as a lobbyist for Mental health issues. Perhaps he can be a fundraiser for a Mental Health organization. This way he will have turned his very negative situation into a positive one as he will continue to do good for people.http://drlillianglass.com
