The Fox interview and subsequent media coverage have garnered his book more attention. On Monday, it was the bestselling title on Amazon.
The New York Times' ethnic slant was less belabored. It didn't take up a 10-minute segment but instead just one single paragraph.
Huma Abedin is a longtime aide of Hillary Clinton.
Her husband, Anthony Weiner, has been caught twice sending explicit messages to women on social media. He was recently caught for the second time sending out lewd photos of himself.
Abedin pledged her love for him at a news conference.
Columnist Maureen Dowd explained Abedin's decision this way: "Huma was raised in Saudi Arabia, where women are treated worse by men than anywhere else on the planet."
First, Abedin is not exactly Saudi Arabian.
Her late father was from India; her mother from Pakistan. She was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, but the family moved to Saudi Arabia when she was 2. She moved back to the United States to attend George Washington University.
She began her Washington career as a White house intern, before working in Hillary Clinton's office, when Clinton was first lady.
Some could not help but see the irony in the same situation connecting both women, in light of the Monica Lewinsky affair during the presidency of Bill Clinton.
"Commentary on Huma Abedin's ethnic reasons for standing by her man ignores the fact that her white boss Hillary Clinton did the same #Weiner," @SaeedShah posted to Twitter.
Moroccan author and novelist Laila Lalami tweeted:
"Maureen Dowd: Huma Abedin stands by Anthony Weiner because she was raised in Saudi Arabia. Remind me, where was Hillary Clinton raised?"
