Flashback: That Soft-Soap People Magazine "Comeback Story" Now Revealed as an Enormous Pile of Political Lies

So here is what happened.

Weiner gave another sneaky statement in which he admitted some things but refused to cop to the timeline.

Then he had his wife read a prepared statement that said "I love him, I trust him, I believe in him" and otherwise flacked for the political husband she married. Political wives are ambitious too -- and when he sleeps at Gracie Mansion, so does she. In fact she might wind up sleeping there more, if you know what I mean.

After some of that crap, he answered a few questions from the press, insisting this was nothing new. Pressed on the issue of the timeline, he said he "thinks" the last sexting episode was "last summer," but he does not state this as a fact, so if he's caught lying again he can just say "I got my months wrong. I thought Christmas snow falls in August."

One reporter asks if the sexting happened after he'd given a "We've patched things up and we're all better now" soft interview story to People Magazine, and he confessed it did happen after that.

Then he left, with reporters still asking questions (he'd answered like two). One of those questions was "Why should we trust your judgment?"

As Emily Miller said, apparently he stopped sexting (per his current revised timeline) only about the time he started running for Mayor of New York City.

We'll see if that story holds.

Here's that People Magazine article, now revealed as a Huge Lie on the part of both Weiner and Huma -- because he said at the press conference she was always aware of everything that was going on in his "healing process," including his continuing, um, challenges.


What's next for former New York congressman Anthony Weiner? Baby's first steps, of course.

"I'm very happy in my present life," Weiner, 47, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. "The only next dramatic steps I'm planning on are Jordan's first," he says, referring to his 6-month-old son and remaining noncommital on whether he will run for office again.

In his first joint interview with wife Huma Abedin, who is deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the couple address how they survived Weiner's lewd text and photo scandal that led to his resignation, as well as who has diaper duty.

"It took a lot of work to get to where are are today, but I want people to know we're a normal family," says Abedin, 37.

"Anthony has spent every day since [the scandal] trying to be the best dad and husband he can be," she says of her husband, who does all the laundry. "I'm proud to be married to him."

Wow.

Meanwhile, Morning Joe's Mika and Andrea Mitchell offer the exact level of skeptical commentary you'd expect them to show towards Hillary Clinton's protege.


Apparently Hillary Clinton's protege in more ways than one.

Update: The sexting, which went on for six months (and that's just the one we know about!), began one week before Mr. & Mrs. Danger's big "Redemption" interview for People.


More: Oh boy, two more women coming forward, Emily Miller says she hears; and also, he liked to use porn actors' names as aliases.

Apparently Huma is in fact at the press conference, per @verumserum.
