It all makes sense now:
"Weiner and Abedin were married in 2010. Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, performed the ceremony." https://t.co/eJEAGHeZJZ

It gets better, though:
This photo reveals the #Weiner wedding was doomed from the start… #AnthonyWeiner #Huma via @TheUnitedStites https://t.co/Y3lzxz9z6I

More from Newsbusters:
Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin’s wedding was doomed from the outset. After all, the much-hyped political union – sullied by a sexting scandal – was officiated by champion philanderer Bill Clinton.
Although the New York Times, Newsweek and others reported on the couple’s 2010 nuptials, even mentioning Clinton’s role, none of these outlets published a picture of the former president presiding over the six-figure ceremony. At least, if there ever were photos, they’ve been taken down … and understandably so. The juxtaposition of the two remarkably similar men is more than a bit embarrassing.
However, we spotted the photo in the May 2016 documentary Weiner, an eye-opening look at the scandal, attempted resurgence and “disastrous mayoral campaign” of the politician. (According to NYT correspondent Mark Leibovich, the long-suffering Abedin never permitted the filmmakers to feature her in the doc – which was apparently ignored.)
Perfect. https://t.co/Ykkbk3YH8G pic.twitter.com/Q2cEsi5v3u

Kerpen is right: It’s perfect. Honestly, it couldn’t’ve gone any other way.
Weiner and @HumaAbedin had their wedding officiated by @billclinton. Irony much?
