Sean Hannity Asks Anthony Weiner About Sexting Scandals: “Have You Changed?”

Anthony Weiner went from convicted sex offender to radio talk show host, but Sean Hannity isn’t convinced he’s changed.

On his Fox News show Monday night, Mr. Hannity invited Mr. Weiner and Curtis Sliwa to discuss their new WABC radio show, “The Left Versus The Right.” He started with a tough question for Mr. Weiner.

“I guess the first question I have is – you pleaded guilty, Anthony, to sending obscene material to a young girl, a 15-year-old girl,” Mr Hannity said. “Have you changed? Are you a different person?”

“Well, I think so,” Mr. Weiner replied. “I don’t think anyone can go through that kind of experience – and I think that’s probably true for people who’ve been through other kinds of adversity – I don’t think you go through that kind of experience. and that you do not emerge modified.”

Mr. Hannity was clearly not satisfied with this response.

“Wait a minute,” the host chimed in. “It’s an obscure answer – ‘I think so.’ Either you know in your heart if you’ve changed, or you know in your heart if you haven’t. have you changed or not. Have you changed?”

“They can judge for themselves,” Mr. Weiner replied.

Mr. Weiner was a member of the United States Congress for 12 years, representing New York’s 9th District. In 2011, he resigned after admitting he had sent sexual photos of himself to several women on Twitter. Two years later, he attempted a comeback for mayor of New York, but his campaign imploded when another woman revealed he had sent her a sext months earlier.

In 2016, reports surfaced that Mr. Weiner had sent sex photos to a 15-year-old girl. The following year, he pleaded guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor and was sentenced to 21 months in prison. He was released in early 2019.

On Monday night, Mr. Hannity pushed the disgraced former congressman to explain how the experience had reformed him or to somehow prove he deserved a second chance. Mr. Weiner would not give him that satisfaction.

“I’m not trying to persuade you or anyone else that I’ve changed,” he said. “I’m not trying to get anyone to like me or get anyone to believe in any particular view of me. We’re going to have conversations about things that are happening in New York and elsewhere, and I hope people tune in to the show, but I’m not very interested in trying to make them feel differently about me.
