The Times of London started the rumor mills this weekend when it published a picture of Hillary Clinton next to her now famous aide, Huma Abedin.
The TIMES of London starts 'The Ugliest Month' with a full page photo takeout on Hillary Clinton and her beautiful personal assistant.
"Hillary Clinton has been accused of having an affair with Huma Abedin," reads the caption.
That's right, the Times speculated that Clinton is having a lesbian affair with her assistant (have we heard that story line before...).
Clinton insiders are quick to deny.
"This does not even qualify as tabloid trash... it's ridiculous and reckless," a Hillary confidante explained over the weekend.
And for those of you who don't know, Abedin runs Clinton's life.
On a day-to-day basis, Ms. Abedin is responsible for guiding the Senator from one chaotic event to the next and ensuring that the many hundreds of situations that arise at each—the photo ops, the handshakes, the speeches—go smoothly. The job of “body person”—industry-speak for the catchall role of an omnipresent traveling assistant—is a notoriously grueling one, requiring unfaltering level-headedness and a zeal for multitasking. These folks are constantly on the move, juggling 20 different chores, and they consequently often appear slightly disheveled (or even sweaty).
