Huma Abedin Friend on Weiner Revelation: "It's Not Okay"

On "New Day" this morning,  Binta Brown shares insight into why her friend Huma Abedin is standing by husband Anthony Weiner, even though he engaged in explicit social media contact with a young woman after he resigned from Congress.

When CNN’s Kate Bolduan asks if she will continue to support Weiner for office, Brown responds, “… If he can get past this and provided there is nothing more, I think he would actually be quite good for this city.”

Brown has known Abedin for over a decade and recently hosted a fundraising event for Anthony Weiner, a mayoral candidate for New York City.

    The Southampton Bathing Club which Chris Cuomo's wife is reportedly a member of, probably wouldn't allow Jeff Zucker (New CNN chief) or Michael Gershensen (Kate Bolduan's husband) to join because they're Jewish. Hate racism!
