Wednesday was a magical day for Democrats, especially for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama supporters with the re-emergence of several high-profile opponents of Conservative and patriotic Americans.
Huma Abedin, an aide to Clinton, posted on Twitter for the first time in two years with a message about how really, really good she feels.

Abedin, married to disgraced Anthony Weiner, received mostly negative comments.
According to a 2017 PBS article on Abedin’s fall from grace was very public:
“The State Department has released emails from Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, that were found by the FBI on her husband’s laptop.
Some of the emails found on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop were marked classified. It was unclear whether they were deemed classified when they were sent or when the State Department was preparing them for release.
The emails were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
The State Department said it “carefully reviews the content of records requested through FOIA to determine whether any information is sensitive or classified,” and some of the documents released Friday have “classified information that has been redacted.”
The FBI found thousands of emails exchanged between Clinton and Abedin while searching Weiner’s laptop as part of a criminal investigation into his sexting with a high school student. The discovery led then-FBI Director James Comey to announce in late October 2016, as Clinton’s run for the White House was in its final stage, that he was reopening the probe of her use of a private computer server.
Then two days before Election Day, the FBI declared there was nothing new in the emails. Clinton has called Comey’s intervention “the determining factor” in her defeat.
The FBI has since said that only a small number of the emails found on the laptop had been forwarded. In contrast, most had been backed up from electronic devices, including most of the email chains containing classified information. Comey said the FBI had concluded that neither Weiner nor Abedin had committed a crime in their handling of the email.”
Yet Abedin has supporters:
Feels good indeed!

“Feels good indeed!”
However, most other posts were focused on Abedin’s husband, Anthony Weiner.
According to NCB News, in an article from October 2020:
“In 2016, Anthony Weiner found himself at the center of yet another scandal: his computer was seized after explicit texts sent to a minor were made public, and emails tied to Hillary Clinton were discovered, leading to the FBI’s opening of an investigation into the former presidential candidate days before the election.
Now a convicted sex offender and failed New York City mayoral candidate, Weiner has jumped back into professional life, far from politics.”
Many of the reactions to Abedin’s post were redirected to what her husband did to young girls.
Abedin’s last post was in 2018 idolizing a disgraced John McCain:
Senator McCain once said, “Our reputations, our character, are the only things we leave behind when we depart this earth.” Being in the cathedral celebrating him showed that words can only strive to capture the greatness of his character. What a legacy to leave on this earth.

So Republican John McCain was her hero? Interesting.
It probably does feel good to live in a world where you can get off from commit crimes and knowing the only consequences will come to the people who discredit your crimes sprees.
