Source: Clintons livid with Weiner personally

President Barack Obama had lunch Monday with former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

A White House spokesman said friendship was the only thing on the agenda.

Erin Burnett highlights the timing and says "we have to wonder whether the two caught up on the scandal that's engulfed the woman Clinton has called a 'second daughter.'

Clinton's long-time aide Huma Abedin, wife of New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner. A source close to Bill and Hillary Clinton tells CNN's Jessica Yellin that the couple is "livid" with Weiner but strictly on a personal front.

The Clintons, we're told, are angry only at how Weiner treated Abedin. They aren't angry at all about how Weiner's sexting scandal could impact Clinton's potential 2016 presidential bid, as some have claimed.
