Democrat may finally understand that Avenatti is a liability, not an asset.
Any sane group would have recognized this months ago, when the man trotted out a porn star to accuse a billionaire of being a philanderer.
He didn’t even have the decency to pick a chaste woman? Instead he chooses a hoochie who has been screwed by more than the entire graduating class of girls at Christine Blasey Ford’s high school.
Amazingly, this is the woman Avenatti chose to represent.
Worse, he pitted her against the man who was powerful enough as a billionaire. A man who could buy all the prostitutes, porn stars, and starlet wannabes in the country.
Perhaps most incredible, Avenatti continued his extortion attempts even after Trump became the most powerful man in the world.
When you can’t get Trump, you go after the people he cares about. So Avenatti went after Brett Kavanaugh. Actually, Avenatti took advantage of the old Leftist proverb: let no crisis go to waste. Thus, he jumped on the Democrats attempted lynching of Kavanaugh.
Again, and perhaps more surprisingly, Avenatti again chose another skank. This one was Julie Swetnick, the woman who went on dates to, count them, ten gangbangs.
Now, we get news that Avenatti attended the Keith Ellison Sharia School of Female Butt Kickings. Hard to believe a woman now accuses the creepy porn lawyer of beating her.
Question: Democrats, haven’t you had enough of Avenatti?
Chris Cillizza asked that very question.
Everywhere you turn, Michael Avenatti is there.
Of late, that’s turned into not such a good thing for the celebrity-lawyer-turned-2020-presidential aspirant. A brief review of Avenatti’s recent problems includes:
* Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, referred Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick, who alleged that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh attended a party where she was drugged and gang raped, to the Justice Department for possible criminal investigation Thursday. Grassley charged that Swetnick and Avenatti lied to committee investigators looking into the allegations against Kavanaugh. Avenatti denied that he or Swetnick misled investigators.
* In a Time magazine profile on him, Avenatti said that he believed that it had “better be a white male” running against President Donald Trump in 2020. Avenatti told CNN that he had been misquoted and taken out of context.
* A California judge ruled earlier this week that Avenatti had to pay almost $5 million to make good on a debt he owed to his former law partner. Avenatti responded by saying that his ex-partner owes him even more money.
* The Daily Beast published a piece suggesting that Avenatti has personally owed more than $1 million in unpaid personal taxes. Avenatti referred to the story as a “hit piece.”
I can’t wait to see how the media handles the next Democrat presidential candidate. Oh Beto…is this thing on?
The article continues,
You get the idea. There’s a bad story. And it gets published. Then, Avenatti says story isn’t true. Rinse, repeat.
Avenatti casts himself as the sort of guy Democrats need to nominate in 2020 against Trump — someone willing to say and do whatever it takes to beat Trump. “I think the party has yearned for a fighter — a fighter for good, if you will — for a significant period of time,” he said during a visit to Iowa recently. “And for many, I’m probably seen as that individual.”
One person who agrees is former Trump White House political adviser Steve Bannon. “(Avenatti’s) got a fearlessness,” Bannon told HBO’s Bill Maher. “And he’s a fighter. I think he’ll go through a lot of that field, if he decides to stick with it, like a scythe through grass.”
You know Bannon is trying to get back in Trump’s good graces with that comment.
But Avenatti is a joke. Thus, the idea that Democrats at any point took him seriously showcases one of their many delusions.
I’m willing to bet that Avenatti’s star has fallen a bit with Democrats, and that’s hard to believe. Maybe they will pick their future presidential candidates a bit better?
