Anthony Weiner’s newly-minted mayoral campaign is humming along and political observers are in constant discussion as to whether he can accumulate the necessary votes to win. In particular, some have wondered whether Mr. Weiner can secure support in the more socially conservative Orthodox Jewish community–some of whom reside in his old congressional district–or if the salacious details of his 2011 sexting scandal are simply too much.
Judging by the cross-section of callers who reached out to Assemblyman Dov Hikind’s post-Shabbos radio show Saturday night, Mr. Weiner still has some work to do–and not only because of the scandal.
President Barack Obama was in town last night, and not only did he raise campaign cash with Jay-Z and Beyoncé, he also went onThe Late Show with David Letterman.
On the program, Mr. Obama wove back and forth between somberly discussing the American economy and Mitt Romney’s recently-emerged remarks about 47 percent of the country, and humorously quipping about more happy topics like his daughters. For example, speaking about Sasha and Malia growing up so quickly, the president said, “It worries me, but they’re surrounded by men with guns.”
