Michael Avenatti, attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels and attempted destroyer of Brett Kavanaugh, seems to no longer be a resident of the planet earth, making an absurd statement about his chances of becoming the Democratic Party presidential nominee in 2020.
Avenatti is claiming that his chances of nabbing the nomination have increased since he was accused of domestic violence just last month. Yes, he’s being for real.
“I think the field is shaping up to be even more advantageous for someone like me, not less,” the celebrity lawyer told Politico in an article published Sunday. “I think my chances have only gone up, not gone down.”
Michael Avenatti’s cable TV bookings have dwindled. He was uninvited from one prominent Democratic event and skipped out on another. Now his highest-profile client is bringing new allegations against him.
In just a matter of weeks, Avenatti’s fortunes have taken a nosedive, rapidly downshifting him from 2020 presidential prospect to political pariah.
After a domestic violence arrest in Los Angeles and a public rift with his porn star client Stormy Daniels over fees and legal strategy, even some of his most loyal supporters are questioning whether he can survive the latest round of challenges and remain a viable candidate.
Avenatti “is accused of attacking his girlfriend and dragging her around the apartment floor while calling her an ‘Ungrateful f*cking bitch,’ this according to the declaration submitted by Mareli Miniutti,” a November 20 post in The Blast reported.
Avenatti was booked for felony domestic assault, charges he vehemently denies, of course.
Now, if the left is going to be consistent in their application of the principles they have espoused in the #metoo movement, they need to demand justice against Avenatti and take action to ensure he does not end up the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.
If they fail to do so, it will expose their hypocrisy on a grand scale, making it even more likely that Trump will receive a second term in office.
Will they actually do the right thing and remain true to the values they claim to live by? Or will they ignore Avenatti’s dirty laundry for the sake of saving face?
Guess we’ll find out soon.
