Rush Limbaugh, a man who has been married three times and who is one of the biggest misogynists on the planet, could not wait to weigh in on this morning's news about Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner.

And of course, his response was to blame her for her husband's despicable behavior.

"Did Huma Abedin Weiner really not know she had a deviant taking care of her child?," he asked, as if that child were not also the child of the father who was "taking care" of him.

He went on to slime Abedin in a truly disgusting fashion.

"She's presumably she's going to be Hillary's chief of staff," Rushbo declared. "But she has not been chief of her husband's staff."

There is so much wrong with that I don't know where to start. Weiner clearly has a real psychological problem that is not her fault, nor is it her responsibility to deal with, nor does Rush Limbaugh actually care about that. He, like his idol Trump, is devoid of empathy or any level of understanding. They both view women as men's possessions, rather than human beings.

Advertisers, is this what you want to associate with? Really?
