The calm soothing words of Barack Obama, I’m sure Weiner feels better already.

(ABC News) — President Obama said he is confident that embattled New York Rep. Anthony Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, can bounce back from the sexting scandal that ended the Democrat’s congressional career.

“I wish Rep. Weiner and his lovely wife well,” Obama said in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts to air on “Good Morning America” Friday. “Obviously, it’s been a tough incident for him, but I’m confident that they’ll refocus and he’ll refocus, and they’ll end up being able to bounce back.”

Amid the pressure, Weiner resigned this afternoon from his post as U.S. representative from the 9th District of New York.
