It seems that sending sexts with their kid in the bed was the final straw for Huma Abedin. Abedin, aide to Hillary Clinton, announced Monday that she’s separating from her sext-obsessed husband, Anthony Weiner.
A report surfaced over the weekend that the 51-year-old Weiner sent out a sext to a unidentified woman that showed him laying in bed with a bulge in his briefs, and his young son alongside him in a blanket.
“After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband,” Abedin, 40, said in a statement. “Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy.”
Weiner was once a rising Democratic star in Congress, but a social media mistake cost him his political career. In 2011, Weiner accidentally tweeted a picture of his crotch publicly that he intended to share privately with another sexting partner.
Through it all, Abedin stood by her man. But apparently, she’s had enough of Weiner’s antics.

Donald Trump, of course, chimed in on the situation.
“Huma is making a very wise decision,” Trump said in a statement. “I know Anthony Weiner well, and she will be far better off without him.”
He also went on to question Hillary’s judgment.
“Who knows what he learned and who he told? It’s just another example of Hillary Clinton’s bad judgment. It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this.”
