Anthony Weiner shared many things with his new alleged sexting partner – but a common political viewpoint was reportedly not one of them.

The former Democratic Congressman – whose wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, announced Monday that she was leaving him amid his third sexting debacle – has reportedly been sexting with a Donald Trump supporter, according to the New York Post story that broke the scandal late Sunday night.

“The object of Weiner’s affections is his polar opposite politically: a self-avowed supporter of Donald Trump and the National Rifle Association who’s used Twitter to bash both President Obama and Clinton,” the Post reported.

The newspaper published screenshots of sexually explicit photos Weiner allegedly exchanged with the woman, whom he reportedly described in one message as “literally a fantasy chick.” In one of the images, Weiner is lying in bed, wearing only white boxer briefs, next to his 4-year-old son.

Little else is known about Weiner’s latest alleged sexting partner – the Post identified her only as a “40-something divorcee.”

Meanwhile, Trump took the sexting scandal as an opportunity to release a statement about “Hillary Clinton’s Bad Judgment.”

“Huma is making a very wise decision. I know Anthony Weiner well, and she will be far better off without him,” the GOP nominee said. “I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information. Who knows what he learned and who he told? It’s just another example of Hillary Clinton’s bad judgment. It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this.”

Ironically, when asked about his previous two sexting scandals in a recent interview with The New York Times Magazine, Weiner changed the topic to Trump.

“I’m not going to go down the path of talking about any of that,” Weiner said of his sexting habits. “But I will say this: There’s no doubt that the Trump phenomenon has led a lot of people to say to me, ‘Boy, compared to inviting the Russians to come hack someone’s email, your thing seems almost quaint.’ ”
