Anthony Weiner had been in a world of trouble when he released lude and embarrassing photos over twitter and other messaging services. Face it, if you release photos or make any comments over twitter, you better know that your message was revealed to the world two seconds before you clicked “send.”
As journalists reported in the news, we cannot help but read headlines as embarrassing phrases. Also, an airline launched a “Have you seen our WEINER?” campaign of only $9 a fair while posting a picture of a Frankfurt hotdog. The PR representative also made comment and confirmed that the hotdog was in fact their weiner.
Weiner was under intense pressure from fellow democratic representatives to resign after publicly refusing too. He handled his departure professionally while some people in the room cheered and yelled comments, expressing relief.
From day one of Weiner’s denial and confessional press conferences, he needed to stop speaking for himself and higher a spokesman with PR experience. He is the shinning example of what you don’t do in the public eye.
Weiner may have received what he deserved but our thoughts and prayers go out to Huma Abedin, his wife, who is expecting their first child. Most likely, this is more of an embarrassment for her then for him. Let’s keep them in our thoughts and prayers as they work to repair their marriage out of the public eye.
