Also, last night, Weiner was on "Stephen Colbert." He attacked the host as a member of the mainstream media which had helped give life to the Trump Phenomenon. The audience booed. Colbert indicated he was flattered to be classified as part of mainstream media.
Meanwhile the woman he is still married to - Huma Abedin - is on duty at the DNC as Hillary Clinton's number-one helper. Weiner can still receive coverage because the world remains interested in his The Good Wife. Like her boss, she has stuck with her man.
