Rep. Anthony Weiner Throws a Tantrum on the House Floor

Rep. Anthony Weiner Throws a Tantrum on the House Floor

Without any question, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has to be the most ill-mannered, disrespectful, ill-tempered, crybaby Congressman in the entire House of Representatives.

Yesterday, on the floor of the House, he got into a shouting match with Rep. Peter King (R-NY) over some legislation Democrats were trying to pass by a super-majority vote.

Weiner screamed; he shouted. He pointed his finger. In short, Weiner acted like a spoiled little child.

The funniest thing about the whole incident was the fact that Gerald Nadler introduced Weiner as, “the distinguished gentleman from New York.”

I am certain Weiner has been called a lot of things, but only on the floor of the House has the little man ever been called a “gentleman.”

I realize, of course, even the kindest of souls are sometimes known to have a bad day. I also don’t think we should determine a man’s temperament by how he behaves on that one occasion.

However, in the case of Anthony Weiner, what you see is what you get.

But please don’t take my word on it! Let the Weiner speak for himself on Wikipedia.

While researching a movie role, calling for him to play a Washington politician, Ben Affleck had the misfortune of meeting Anthony Weiner at the Capitol. Not long after they met, Weiner was yelling at the Hollywood actor.

“We got into a chest-to-chest shouting match over Obama-Clinton within about four minutes,” Weiner said. “Literally, people were outside the office, wondering if they should go in and separate us.”

Apparently, Weiner is rude and obnoxious to everyone, not just his fellow politicians.

While I hold no great affection for Ben Affleck, I do find myself wishing the pampered Hollywood actor had poked the pampered politician in his prominent snout.

I have watched Weiner being interviewed on no less than three news programs and the man has yet to ever answer a question. Not only does he fail to give a straight answer, Weiner has also rightfully earned the title of being the biggest whiner in the House, as well.

It has me wondering if Anthony Whiner doesn’t get his diaper changed on a daily basis by Nancy Pelosi.

Whenever Weiner is interviewed, little Tony never answers a question, he interrupts everyone else on the program, and then he whines at them to “Let me finish!”

Whenever he is queried, Weiner never fails to launch into a long-winded rant which is totally void of any real substance. The interviewer routinely grows frustrated with Weiner’s mindless filibusters, which are worthy of Sen. Robert C. Byrd’s 14-hour stem-winder against the Civil Rights bill.

Only a fool would give this ill-tempered, spoiled child a second invitation to appear on any serious news program.

I understand that Anthony Weiner recently married Huma Abedin, an aide to Hillary Clinton. And although the former president is neither a minister nor a judge, Bill Clinton performed the ceremony.

My inside sources have confirmed that when Clinton asked Weiner if he took this woman to be his lawful wife, Anthony spent the next twenty minutes answering the question.

When Clinton finally pressed Weiner to say “I do,” it is rumored Weiner got into a shouting match with the former president and told Clinton to quit interrupting him.

The unfortunate Miss Huma Abedin still doesn’t know if the ceremony was ever finalized, because Weiner is still trying to keep from answering the former president’s question.
