It’s 2013, and you’re trying to relaunch a once promising political career after a sexting scandal destroyed it. You take aim at the NYC mayoral election. Your amazing wife Huma Abedin — a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton — for some reason is still with you, in spite of the humiliating sexting scandal that forced your resignation from Congress. You are so confident about your political resurrection, however, that you allow a camera crew to film a documentary about your comeback.

What’s the last thing in the world you would ever, ever do?

If you said send dick pics to a 22-year-old in Indiana, you win a prize! That prize is the trailer for Weiner, the documentary that comes out of the footage, and it is spectacular. Ever wondered what kind of behind-the-scenes conversations go on after a sexting scandal ruins a political comeback? Or what one’s wife might say after said comeback?

It’s all here, in all its cringeworthy glory.

Anthony Weiner is still married to Huma Abedin. This is too awful to get any schadenfreude satisfaction.
