Weiner

Synopsis: Serving seven consecutive terms, Anthony Weiner, good friends with and political allies to the Clintons, was once a highly respected member of Congress from New York City, he seen as a man sticking up for the every day person. That all changed in June, 2011 when he was forced to resign in disgrace after admitting that he did tweet lewd "headless" photos of himself from his public Twitter account to women he met online, and that it was not the work of a hacker or that the photos were of someone else. At the time, his wife Huma Abedin, herself a key aide to Hillary Clinton, was pregnant with their first child, she who decided to stand by her man. Two years later with Abedin still by his side, Weiner tries to resurrect his political career in a run for New York City mayor. He realizes that he has an uphill battle not only because of the known previously tweeted photos, but that there are other lewd photos from that era that may also come to light during the campaign.

Shit.

This is the worst.

This is the worst.

Doing a documentary

on my scandal.

Hi.

I don't know.

I guess the

the punch line

is... is true about me.

I did the things.

Um, but I did a lot

of other things too.

Mr. Speaker,

I yield one minute

to the distinguished gentleman

from New York, Mr. Weiner.

Gentleman's...

- Great courage to wait

until all members

have already spoken

and then stand up and wrap

your arms around procedure.

You vote yes if you believe yes!

You vote in favor of something

if you believe

it's the right thing.

If you believe it's the wrong

thing, you vote no.

We are following a procedure.

I will not yield

to the gentleman

and the gentleman will observe

regular order.

The gentleman will observe

regular order.

Not in order.

It's Republicans wrapping

their arms around Republicans

rather than doing the right

thing on behalf of the heroes.

It is a shame! A shame!

If you believe this is a bad

idea to provide healthcare

then vote no!

But don't give me

the cowardly view

that, "Oh, if it was

a different procedure."

The gentleman will observe

regular order and sit down!

I will not.

It's about damn time.

It was an absolute pleasure

to see a Democrat not cowering.

Is it not the rules

of the house

that under clause 10A

of rule 21

what the speaker articulated

in this sentence

is in the fact the rule?

The gentleman is untimely.

Engrossment and third reading

of the bill.

Those in favor will signify

by saying, aye.

No question the guy knows

how to fight.

He's scrappy, he's combative

he's always been a great fighter

on behalf of the people.

He never backed down

from anybody.

You should urge them

to vote yes

something the gentleman

has not done!

You're scaring the hell out

of people in the right.

That's the sum and substance

of ObamaCare. That's your idea.

Why don't you like it,

now that we wrote the law?

I got 94 percent of my college.

What percent did you get?

How did that

whip organization go?

How's that crackerjack

Peter King whip organization

working out?

Stop whining

and get the bill passed.

Boy, that was passionate.

I... I'm glad somebody's finally

put their foot down and says,

"We're not taking it anymore."

Weiner is a rising star

in Congress.

Married to one of Hillary Clinton's

closest advisors.

Bill Clinton officiated

their wedding.

Ladies and gentlemen,

the honorable Anthony Weiner.

We turn now to Washington

where trouble is brewing

for a high-profile

New York Congressman.

It all started Friday night

at 11:
30 p.m.

A photo of an anonymous man's

bulging underwear...

- Was Tweeted from

Congressman Weiner's account.

Tell me definitely,

is that a photograph of you?

I'm reluctant to say to you

definitively anything

about this.

So it's possible it is you.

We're trying to get

to the bottom of what

it's of and who it's of.

Have you ever taken a picture

like this of yourself?

I have photographs.

I don't know what photographs

are out there

in the world of me.

I don't know

what things have been

manipulated and doctored.

You would know if Th... this

is your underpants.

At an emergency press conference,

the truth came out.

Like a..

...like a dolphin wiggling free

of a blanket.

To be clear, the picture

was of me and I sent it.

Please welcome Congressman

Weiner's underwear.

Now, I'm not happy about it

but anytime

a new Weiner photo comes out

as a television host,

I am constitutionally obliged

to show them to you.

I took an oath.

He first and foremost

apologizes to his wife Huma.

She's pregnant
