Trump blames the first woman he can think of for Weiner's sexting.

On Monday, Hillary Clinton’s longest-serving aide, Huma Abedin, announced she would separate from Anthony Weiner, her husband of six years, after the New York Post revealed his involvement in yet another sexting scandal. “After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband,” she said in a statement.

Then, mere hours later, Republican nominee Donald Trump decided it was necessary for his campaign to release a statement on the situation. After offering his unsolicited opinion on Huma’s decision (“I know Anthony well, and she will be far better off without him”), Trump managed to turn the sexting habits of Clinton’s aide’s husband into a condemnation of her leadership:

I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information. Who knows what he learned and who he told? It’s just another example of Hillary Clinton’s bad judgement. It is possible that our country and security have been greatly compromised by this.

Trump has fretted over Weiner learning state secrets before. “[Clinton’s] No. 1 person is Huma Abedin, married to Anthony Weiner, who is a sleazeball and a pervert,” he said during a press conference in June. “I don’t like Huma going home at night and telling Anthony Weiner all these secrets.” Of course, if he’s in the business of judging candidates by those closest to them, Trump might want to do a little housekeeping.

1. Someone should remind him

of the meeting on the ski slopes between Ivana Trump and the mistress he had invited to come and humiliate her, his wife and mother of his kids.

It was on the front page of all the papers for weeks, and he was so proud of himself, even encouraging the girlfriend to talk publicly about their sex life.

Shameless scumbag.

2. Oh, the lack of logic!

I like this part:

"It is possible that X could have happened. Therefore, X is evidence of Y."
