In one described scene, Weiner races through the back halls of a McDonald’s to avoid running into the woman he “sext” messaged; in another, Abedin tells her husband “with a hint of disgust” that she dislikes his pants. Other scenes are more telling:
Just after the news broke that Mr. Weiner had exchanged lewd messages with women online using the pseudonym Carlos Danger, Ms. Abedin maintained a steely calm.
When a young campaign staff member, on the verge of tears over the revelations, prepared to leave the couple’s Park Avenue apartment, Ms. Abedin offered some advice. “Just a quick optics thing?” she said to the woman. “I assume those photographers are still outside. So, you will look happy?” The staff member agreed. [The New York Times]
