Anthony Weiner, the former congressman from New York whose political star lost its shine during a series of social media sexual messages, emerged from the shadows cast by his high-powered wife, Hillary Clinton confidante Huma Abedin, to slam Donald Trump on Twitter with a childish F-bomb mock – as a “F-face Von Clownstick.”
His exact words?
They came in reference to a poll that showed Clinton beating Trump by three percentage points.
And they read: “If we are gonna test fanciful hypothetics, how does HRC do against F*ckface Von Clownstick?”
He then included a link to a tweet from Chris Jansing, a senior White House news correspondent for NBC News, who wrote in her own social media message: “NBC poll: Clinton beats Trump by 3 but Sen. Bernie Sanders is up by 15 points, 54 to 39 percent in hypothetical matchup.”
Weiner’s name-call isn’t his own creation. It was actually a title used to describe Trump by nighttime comedy host Jon Stewart back in 2013, as the Hill noted.
Weiner served as a congressman for New York from 1999 to 2011, when he resigned due to a sexting scandal. He then tried to run for mayor of New York City in 2013, but another scandal involving sexual photographs emerged and he lost.
