He was supposed to be the hero the Democratic Party needed. Charming. Funny. Brash. A progressive white knight in a sea of political darkness. He was the party’s future. You could see his path to the White House.
Then, he had to go and tweet that dick pic.
The joke wrote themselves. A resignation from Congress and two years later, he then decided to run for Mayor of New York… and people have forgiven him. He was even topping the polls. People trusted Weiner again.
Enter Carlos Danger.
Look, if this is all a little confusing to you… that’s fine. It’d probably be better to see his fall, his subsequent rise, and then his mind-boggling second fall with fresh eyes.
If you’re only even mildly interested in politics, this looks to be an instant classic. The trailer looks dynamite.
Weiner will be in theaters May 20, 2016 and Video on Demand on May 26.
