MSNBC: In an exclusive interview with TODAY’s Ann Curry that will air on Tuesday’s show, President Barack Obama said that if he were Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner right now, he would resign in the wake of the scandal in which Weiner admitted to sending explicit photos of himself to women online.
“I can tell you that if it was me, I would resign,’’ Obama told Curry.
Weiner has been the talk of the nation since he was caught sending lewd photos of himself to various women on multiple social media platforms, prompting the head of the Democratic National Party to call for him to step down and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi to demand an ethics committee investigation.
“When you get to the point where, because of various personal distractions, you can't serve as effectively as you need to, at the time when people are worrying about jobs, and their mortgages, and paying the bills — then you should probably step back,’’ Obama said. [MORE]If it weren't for the fact that Joe Biden is embarrassingly stupid, I would suggest that someone in the White House tweet a pic of Obama's junk. Not that I really believe a damn word coming out of Obama's mouth, but just in case he really would resign, it might be worth a shot.
All funniness aside, I think Anthony Weiner's days are now done. Pelosi and Wasserman-Schultz have come out against Weiner (for folks who are suppose to champion women, it sure took a long time for these gals to condemn Weiner) and now Obama has too. Democrats must realize that whatever traction they may have picked up with Mediscare, it is being squandered by the Weiner Show. Come on Anthony Weiner stick around a little longer, we need ya man!
