In the days following the most historic election of our generation, where Donald Trump soundly defeated Hillary Clinton against massive odds, most of the attention has been on Clinton’s reaction, but it seems she isn’t the only one suffering from her staggering lose.
Huma Abedin was spotted this morning on her way to the now defunct Clinton campaign HQ in Brooklyn, where the Daily Mail caught pictures of her sobbing and appearing to be unsuccessfully holding back tears.
Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin wept openly in the street on Friday as she returned to the place where the Democratic candidate’s campaign was fought – and lost.
Abedin looked like she had the weight of the world on her shoulders as she visited the campaign headquarters of the failed presidential candidate – after her own stumbles and her husband’s sexting habits helped contribute to Clinton’s historic defeat.
Abedin ventured out of her Manhattan apartment and went to the office three days after President-elect Donald Trump shocked the world by defeating Clinton.
She approached the tall building with stunning views which had until Tuesday been filled with staff an volunteers carrying a bag and a purse.
The pain and emotion of the situation were clearly visible on the face of the long-time loyalist, despite the dark large-frame sunglasses that covered her eyes
Huma was seen with giant sunglasses, perhaps attempting to hide puffy eyes from three days straight of crying, and with an absolutely forlorn look on her face.
It wasn’t just a sad expression, however, as Abedin appears to be wiping tears away from her cheek as she makes her way to the Clinton HQ.
Huma herself may be taking Clinton’s lose more personally than other members of her staff, as her now estranged pedophile husband was the main cause of the FBI temporarily reopening the investigation into Clinton’s private email server. Although FBI director James Comey announced 2 days before the election that there was “no new evidence” and their original decision in July stands, the damage was already done.
Let’s not forget, Huma Abedin is very emotionally attached to Clinton, as earlier this year she told reporters that she “nearly cried” when she heard that Hillary had to carry her own bags to her hotel room, absent an aid to perform the task for her.
An entire week of news headlines announcing to voters that Hillary Clinton was once again being investigated may have been the last straw for many on-the-fence voters, unwilling to put a woman into office who would likely be plagued with constant investigations.
At one point Abedin’s lip quivered and she wiped her eyes as she took the emotional journey back to work.
It isn’t known how long the Clinton campaign office will remain open, or how long a lease the candidate signed. Clinton herself was spotted taking a walk Thursday when a supporter snapped a selfie with the smiling candidate.
After the FBI bombshell, Abedin was suddenly off Clinton’s campaign plane for several days, missing high-profile campaign events in swing states with Jennifer Lopez, March Anthony, Beyonce, and Jay Z.
But she re-emerged to hold a Washington D.C. fundraiser with Vogue editor Anna Wintour on the Friday before the election where she was photographed smiling.
Then, just two days before the election, Comey announced that the FBI had found nothing to change its earlier conclusion not to prosecute Clinton – essentially leaving her off the hook, as far as the investigation is concerned.
It was Comey ‘who we think may have cost us the election,’ campaign chair John Podesta said on a post-election campaign conference call, The Hill reported.
Huma Abedin just lost her career, as her fortunes were tethered to Hillary Clinton’s chance at the White House, but I’m sure she will be given a cushy career at the Clinton Foundation. With Trump set to be officially sworn in on January 20th, Huma’s future may hold more than just a rocky career path, as he has vowed to appoint a special prosecutor to fully investigate Clinton and her criminality.
Cheer up Huma, you have some impressive achievements to add to your resume such as “wife of a twice caught pedophile”, “personal assistant to covering up Clinton’s private emails”, “accused of being a spy for Saudi Arabia” and “carrying Hillary’s bags for decades”.
