Anthony Weiner fell short of getting anywhere near the votes he needed for Tuesday night's primary. His bid for the mayor of NYC's seat, came up empty, so his campaign ended Tuesday night. In his typical arrogant fashion Weiner ended his campaign by flipping off the reporters who had been following him around for the night, according to Walter Hickey from the Business Insider, on Sept. 11.
Weiner won just about five percent of the vote and Fox News live on Wednesday contributes his low support for his lack of humility. The man tried for a comeback after his scandal, but he did it in a way that people found him arrogant. He came barreling out into the public as if nothing ever happened. No real plan, he just seemed to want people to forget about his scandal.
Weiner acknowledged doing it, he said he was sorry, so get over it and move on, this was the mindset many saw him in. In all actuality, the man apologized and simultaneously accepted his own apology as if he were speaking for the public he was hoping to represent if he ever got into the mayor’s office.
His fast talk and the way he challenged others who asked him about his political downfall was like he was living in a fantasy world, where his short comings should just disappear.
His lack of humility and his eventual demonstrations of anger on the subject of his sexting habits when asked about them, painted a picture of a lone ranger. He appeared as a man who seemed more interested in his advancement than the good of the city he hoped to govern from the mayor’s seat.
Much like giving the media the finger Tuesday night, Weiner doesn't seem to have that filter needed for public life. He jumps on impulse. Hickey says he didn't think anyone captured a picture of Weiner's farewell finger wave, but they did.
A picture, a bit blurred, but never the less a picture of Weiner giving the finger to Shimon Prokupecz, a reporter, was captured and tweeted. This could have been the mayor of the greatest city in the world!
