The strangest relationship in politics continues.
Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin were spotted together for the first time in months on Thursday – with the pair stopping by the Bergdorf Goodman salon for a quick cut and color.
The former Secretary of State was photographed as she made her way to a waiting car after a day spent at the John Barrett Salon, showing off the results of her new $600 haircut and $600 dye job.
Huma on the other hand seems to have tagged along for work purposes – with photos showing that Hillary’s longtime aide did not have anything done to her tresses on Thursday.
Those same photos also show that she was tasked with carrying her boss’ bag in addition to her own on the way out, all while trying to maintain her balance on the ice-covered sidewalk outside the building.
In the end, Hillary’s biggest supporter was successful in getting both her $2,580 Prada Saffiano tote and her boss’ $2,435 Givenchy Antigona bag safely to the car before the group drove away from the department store.
Tugging around Hillary’s bags was Huma’s job. But these days it’s increasingly her only job. Huma went from being the closest person to a future president and married to a Congressman to…. tugging around a failed presidential candidate’s bags.
The question is why?
Huma probably did more than anyone in her inner circle to cost her the election simply because of the Weiner factor. Bill let his version of Huma, the guy who helped make the Clinton Foundation happen, go after he became a drag. And Huma Abedin would seem to need to move on if she’s going to retain any kind of career prospects. But instead there she is still playing gofer.
The money is no doubt good. The Clintons have retained plenty of cash. But there isn’t much in the way of upward mobility. Yet the relationship continues.
