One of the biggest falls from political grace in recent history has been former Democratic Rep. #Anthony Weiner. After the latest news involves Weiner having to register as a sex offender, Presidential Counsel #Kellyanne Conway decided to comment on the issue during a social media post.

Conway on Weiner

From 1999 to 2011, Anthony Weiner won seven straight terms in the House of Representatives, representing New York as a Democrat while never getting less than 59 percent of the vote. On his way to greater heights in politics, everything came crashing down for Weiner when it was revealed that he had been engaging in an online affair, with his sexting pictures and texts being leaked to the public.

Weiner's wife, former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, decided to keep their marriage going and it appeared as if the former congressman would get a second chance at success. However, Weiner's dream of running for NYC mayor ended after it was uncovered that he had been sexting with a 15-year-old girl, including sending a semi-nude picture of himself with his young son in the background. On Friday, NPR reported that Weiner decided to #Plead Guilty on charges of "transferring obscene material to a minor" where he could face as long as two years in prison, while also being ordered to register as a sex offender. Commenting on the news was Kellyanne Conway, who tweeted out her remarks [VIDEO]on May 19.

Taking to Twitter to jab at Anthony Weiner was Kellyanne Conway.

"Weiner's one sexting victim was 15 years old and his son in another picture was 4," Conway tweeted, before adding, "Guilty plea may result in him registering as sex offender."

Twitter reacts

Responding to Kellyanne Conway's tweet about Anthony Weiner's sex scandal, social media users were quick to point out the irony in regards to Donald Trump's controversial history with women. "Drump used to brag about going backstage at his beauty pageants where young women were changing to 'inspect,'" director Robert Maguire tweeted out, before later adding, "Weiner is a vile man, but the idea that president doesn't suffer the same tendencies is laughable."

"Your boss is on tape admitting to sexual assault," Roland Scahill wrote on Twitter.

"What does this have to do with your "job" KELLYANNE?" comedian Kristina Wong wondered.

"I agree; disgraceful. Sexual predators should be despised beyond politics. Speaking of: how are you on Roger Ailes? Didn't see a comment," another Twitter user wrote. "If this was Trump though, the spin would be to destroy the reputation of the girl who leaked it, then call it a media conspiracy," David Berkowitz added.
