Huma Abedin friend on Weiner revelation: “It’s not okay”

On New Day, Binta Brown shared insight into why her friend Huma Abedin is standing by 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 asked if she will continue to support Weiner for office, Brown responded, “… 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.

New Day airs weekday mornings 6-9am ET on CNN.
