Anthony Weiner’s wife of a year, Huma Abedin, has kept a low-profile through her long-career as Hillary Clinton’s right-hand woman, and especially over the last couple of days as her husband’s scandal has broadened.
But the demand to hear from Huma appears to be escalating.
Photographers snapped paparazzi-like shots of Abedin as she trailed behind Clinton at a hotel in Abu Dhabi Thursday. Known for her fashion sense, Abedin looked calm and put-together, wearing a bright blue blazer and a red belt. Weiner’s wife left the U.S. on Wednesday to accompany the secretary of state on the trip to the Persian Gulf and Africa.
A State Department spokesman told the AP, “She is on the trip because it’s her job, and she hasn’t missed a beat throughout.
The AP meanwhile has this video of Abedin being trailed by its videographer, at least, as she makes her way through Abu Dhabi hotel.
