We first started informally chatting about Hillary Clinton’s trusted aide Huma Abedin on Friday after the latest email scandal erupted. Seeing Huma and her estranged husband Anthony Weiner once again make headlines quickly inspired us to create this list of South Asian actresses who would be fantastic at playing her. While that was fun, watching Huma be dragged through the mud (AGAIN) hasn’t been.
Of course Anthony Weiner had to pop up in the news during the final week of the campaign.
If you follow lots of left-leaning people on Twitter, that sentiment probably came up a lot over the course of this weekend. It also lead us, as South Asian pop culture bloggers, to ask the question that really matters: Who should play Weiner’s estranged wife Huma Abedin in the inevitable movie made about this campaign?
