While most of the attention in the past week has been on Hillary Clinton, and her reaction to the “shocking” election outcome, the reality is that Hillary’s life is set with or without the presidency, and absent some major FBI-related escalation, she will live a comfortable life after her separation from politics courtesy of the millions in fees collected from speeches and the money dumped into the Clinton Foundation (whose donors may now demand refunds, as the Clintons no longer have any political favors to repay).
However, one other person who has been far more severely impacted is Hillary’s close, right-hand aide, Huma Abedin, whose estranged husband many – including John Podesta himself – claim was the catalyst that caused Hillary’s sudden drop in the polls in the week prior to the election, and may have cost Clinton the presidency. Worse, with her boss now out of politics, Huma suddenly finds herself in a dead-end career, with few accomplishments outside of the Clinton campaign to point to, a looming divorce and a potential criminal probe.
Now, according to the Daily Mail, it may have all finally hit Huma, who appears to have suffered an emotional breakdown, weeping “openly as she returns to campaign headquarters where she and her aides ran doomed bid to elect Hillary Clinton.”
The UK paper adds that Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin “wept in the street as she approached the failed campaign’s headquarters in Brooklyn.”
