Hillary is looking a little rough and Huma, just as anxious and squirrelly as ever. Someone should really tell these chicks to give up and go home.
Hillary Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin were pictured together on Thursday for the first time since losing the presidential election.
The pair chatted and Abedin smiled as they walked out of Clinton’s office in the Midtown neighborhood of New York City.
They had spent five hours inside the office before Abedin and an unidentified woman walked Clinton to a waiting vehicle and sent her on her way with a box of documents.
The lengthy meeting came in the week of an uncomfortable reminded of the final crisis to hit Clinton’s campaign, and Huma’s role in it: the unsealing of an FBI search warrant looking for secret emails on Abedin’s pervert estranged husband Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
Clinton, her husband, Bill, and her aides have said that the FBI’s announcement of the renewed probe into her secret email server was a crucial factor in her election loss.
But the five-hour meeting shows that there is no bad blood between Clinton and Abedin over Weiner’s role in the defeat.
There have, however, been rumblings of discontent inside the Clinton camp over Abedin’s continued presence at the loser’s side.
Campaign staffers told Vanity Fair earlier this month that they ‘don’t give a s***’ about Abedin following Clinton’s presidential loss.
In the process of the Weiner probe, investigators found that the computer contained ‘thousands’ of emails sent and received by Abedin, according to the warrant request.
Many Clinton staffers lashed out a Abedin after her boss’s surprise loss to Donald Trump in the election.
‘Maybe I’m just pissed off, but I really don’t give a s*** about what happens to Huma Abedin to be honest with you,’ one Clinton adviser told Vanity Fair.
That person then added that they took issue with Abedin appearing on the rope line alongside Clinton when she greeted disappointed supporters after conceding the election to Trump.
‘You’re staff, O.K.? Staff is staff. You’re not a principal.’
Another Clinton insider also seemed to suggest that Abedin was getting a little too comfortable with the limelight.
‘She was enjoying the red carpet and enjoying the photo spreads much too much in my opinion,’ said the insider. ‘She enjoyed being a celebrity too much.’
Abedin was often photographed at Clinton events, took selfies with supporters and was also featured in Vogue – wearing a designer outfit which the magazine noted was her own.
