This is hysterical.
The National Enquirer has released a photograph that it claims is the first and only picture of former U.S. Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate John Edwards and his love child with mistress Rielle Hunter.
The problem? It's a tad grainy.
The stunning “spy photo” (their quotes, not ours) shows John Edwards holding what we are led to believe is his child with Rielle Hunter, daughter Frances Quinn Hunter, at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles ast month.
That's where the Enquirer recently caught him visiting the baby’s mother, forcing the politician to take refuge in a supply closet. Here's the "damning" picture ...
According to the Enquirer, John Edwards is holding his love child while standing in front of a distinctive striped curtain.
The same window covering hangs in each one of the hotel’s rooms – and is clearly visible in photos of guest rooms on the hotel’s website.
“These photos are damning proof,” said a source. “He’s been caught lying about his affair with Rielle Hunter and their love child for many months – and now the proof against him is piling up. His elaborate coverup is unraveling.”
Okay, look. We've been saying for weeks that the mainstream media should cover this celebrity scandal. We would not be that surprised if an affair and/or John Edwards-Rielle Hunter love child actually existed.
But come on, Enquirer. Either you have a photo or you don't. What appears above is basically a John Edwards avatar cradling a cyber-baby.
