Vice President Joe Biden could not hide his reaction when told during an interview with CNN that aired late Friday night that disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of close Clinton aide Huma Abedin, was reportedly behind the renewed FBI investigation into Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Host Michael Smerconish asked Biden about the renewed FBI investigation. Biden said he did not know where the new emails came from. Smerconish said, “Apparently, Anthony Weiner.”
Biden’s expression melted into a crestfallen downward gaze as his eyes closed in pain and he exclaimed, “Well, oh God! Oh!” He then looked away for a moment to gain control of his reaction.
Biden added, “Anthony Weiner. Umm, I’m not a big fan of Anthony Weiner. And I wasn’t before he got in trouble so I shouldn’t comment on Anthony Weiner.”
