Tucker Attacks ‘Creepy Porn Lawyer’ Avenatti for Letting Kids Attend His Speaking Gigs for Free

If you haven’t heard by now, Tucker Carlson seems obsessed with Stormy Daniels‘ attorney, Michael Avenatti. Or rather, perhaps it’s more accurate to say that Carlson has an obsession with calling Avenatti “the creepy porn lawyer” every single waking moment where he has a chance to do so. Last night, the Fox host covered Avenatti’s recent appearance at the Iowa Democratic Wing Ding dinner, where he stoked the possibility that he’ll run against President Trump in 2020. Carlson didn’t miss a beat, calling Avenatti “a terrifying creature” who draws his “lifeblood” from his numerous TV appearances and now, his upcoming speech for the New Hampshire Democratic Party. “The creepy porn is calling himself an entrepreneur,” Carlson said through mocking laughter. “Pretty funny, tainting yet another once-noble calling. You’ll have to buy a ticket to attend…but brace yourself now. The creepy porn lawyer says children under 12 will be admitted Continue reading "Tucker Attacks ‘Creepy Porn Lawyer’ Avenatti for Letting Kids Attend His Speaking Gigs for Free"

Michael Avenatti Announces His Political Platform, Met With Fear and Mockery

In his latest hint at a potential presidential run, Michael Avenatti tweeted out a list of his stances on a variety of social and economic issues Tuesday in a document titled “What I Believe.” While he said it isn’t a comprehensive summary of his platforms, he stressed that it was drawn up without the advice of a political consultant on “what to say or what to believe.” The list embraces a fairly liberal platform, calling for the protection of abortion rights, equal pay, and gun control,

Media is About to Make the Same Mistake With Michael Avenatti That They Made With Trump

Coming off a trip to Iowa — aka the “land of nascent political ambitions” — personal attorney to adult film stars Michael Avenatti is talking about a presidential bid. Instead of dismissing this as a publicity stunt, the political media class appear to be ignoring what many would call folly, continuing to provide precious airtime to the publicity hound. In doing so, they may very well be making the same mistake they made in the run-up to the last general election…just like how Trump was treated by the media early on in his long-shot bid. There is no denying it’s been quite a year for the California-based attorney, largely due to his public litigation of the Stormy Daniels affair and allegations that President Donald Trump was involved in a pay-off to keep his alleged extramarital affair with the adult film actress out of the public sphere. In the months since that story broke Continue reading "Media is About to Make the Same Mistake With Michael Avenatti That They Made With Trump"

Michael Avenatti in Iowa: ‘When They Go Low, I Say, We Hit Harder’

Yep, this is happening. Stormy Daniels‘ attorney Michael Avenatti is openly entertaining the idea of running for President of the United States, and last night he spoke at the Iowa Democratic Wing Ding dinner to lay out his vision for America and how to fight back against President Donald Trump. He talked about fighting for “the survival of our republic” and made it clear he stands with the Democrats on pretty much every big issue. The dividing point, he argued, is on how much they should fight:
“What I fear for this Democratic party that I love so much is that we have a tendency to bring nail clippers to a gun fight. Tonight, however, I want to suggest a different course. I believe that our party, the Democratic party, must be a party that fights fire with fire. I believe that we can no longer be the party Continue reading "Michael Avenatti in Iowa: ‘When They Go Low, I Say, We Hit Harder’"

He also spoke to the media from the Iowa fairgrounds — a familiar stomping grounds for presidential wannabes —  where he said he was “serious about considering” a run for president in 2020. Responding to Avenatti’s announcement,  CNN host Erin Burnett first played a clip of Avenatti talking about how serious he was about his consideration. Then, turning to the panel, she said simply “okay” before Frank BruniNew York Times columnist, noted that he is not sure if he “believes that at all” because of Avenatti’s penchant for manipulating the media. Then, turning to Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Burnett asked, “would you support a Michael Avenatti?” Blumenthal replied, “I would not support Continue reading "Democratic Sen.

Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin: Democrats Should Be ‘Insulted’ at the Idea of Avenatti 2020

Stormy Daniels‘ lawyer considering a presidential run is the kind of thing most pundits would dismiss out of hand. But Donald Trump is the President so anything is possible now, and Nicolle Wallace‘s panel this afternoon entertained the possibility. The Washington Post‘s Philip Rucker said, “Trump made it happen in the Republican Party a few years ago. I mean, you look at the field of Democrats right now and Avenatti is the one who stands out. He’s the one not a politician.” The question, Wallace said, is what Democrats value most. And if what they need is a “fighter,” people may warm up to him. The Root‘s Jason Johnson said the Democrats could certainly use a fighter, “someone who is actually going to go head to head with Donald Trump.” Wallace noted, as Avenatti himself has, plenty of established politicians ran against Trump and Continue reading "Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin: Democrats Should Be ‘Insulted’ at the Idea of Avenatti 2020"

Michael Avenatti ‘Exploring’ Presidential Run

The 2020 presidential race may see a political newcomer: Michael Avenatti. The famed lawyer for porn actress Stormy Daniels visited Iowa Thursday, where he said he’s mulling the idea. “I’m exploring a run for the presidency of the United States, and I wanted to come to Iowa and listen to people and learn about some issues that are facing the citizens of Iowa and do my homework,” he told the Des Moines Register. Avenatti, a notorious opponent of President Donald Trump‘s in his fight to release Daniels from a pricey non-disclosure agreement regarding her alleged affair with Trump, maintained that his consideration of a run was not motivated by self-interest. “I would never think to come to Iowa in order to use the state or the people of the state to raise my profile,” he said to the outlet. “And obviously if I do this, then I intend to work Continue reading "Michael Avenatti ‘Exploring’ Presidential Run"
