Anthony Weiner’s mayoral dreams came to a halt Tuesday night with a bang and so many whimpers. In short, he had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad night.
First he lost the election. Like really really bad.
Then his wife didn’t show up to see him lose the election.

But the woman who killed his campaign does show up, just to humiliate him.

Then he gave a speech where he doesn’t mention his wife who isn’t there.

Then he got chased through a McDonald’s into an alley as he tried to avoid a confrontation with Sydney Leathers.
Then he gave reporters the finger as he drives away.

And they got pictures.
