Sean Hannity grilled lamb Anthony Weiner for appearing insincere on Monday in the latter’s first major TV interview since he went to prison for sending sexually explicit pictures of himself to a child.
Weiner, a former congressman from New York who has been married for a long time Hillary Clinton assistant Huma Abedin, was convicted up to 21 months in prison in 2017.
The disgraced former MP was released earlier this week three years ago, and must register as a sex offender.
The former political star has kept a low profile since he was released from prison early, but he has joined the national conversation by appearing on Hannity with former New York City mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa.
Weinernow 57, discussed a new co-host gig he has with Sliwa on WABC.
Of course, he was questioned about the offense that landed him in prison by Hannity.
“I guess the first question I ask is are you guilty, Anthony, of sending obscene materials to a young girl, a 15 year old girl,” Hannity said. “You commit a crime. You were in jail. “
The host asked, “You’ve changed, are you a different person?”
I think so, too. I don’t think anyone can go through that kind of experience, and I think this is probably true for people who have gone through other kinds of adversity. I don’t think you go through that kind of experience and don’t change.
Hannity, who seemed confused by the answer, cut Weiner off.
“Wait a minute, that’s a baffling answer,” I think,” Hannity said. “Either you know when your heart has changed or you know when your heart has not changed.
“Can you assure people, because now you’re going to try to engage the audience, and they’re going to want to know if you’ve changed. Did you fix it?”
After trying to tell the host that people can draw their own conclusions as to whether he is another man, Weiner explained,
I’m not convincing you or anyone else that I’ve changed. I mean, I’m doing a radio show and people can call and then ask me questions. We did a meeting this past Saturday where everyone had a chance to call in.
I’m not trying to get someone to like me, or to convince someone of any particular view of me. We’re going to have some conversations about what’s going on in New York City and elsewhere, and hopefully people will watch the show, but I’m not very interested in trying to make them feel good. other go on me.
Hannity, who expressed frustration with Weiner, then spoke to Sliwa, who defended his co-host as a man who had served his time.
Weiner then reiterated that he had changed.
“You invited me to come then you said, you’ve changed?” Weiner said. “I said I believe I did. I believe this kind of experience will change any person. “
