Well, it's officially official… Michael Avenatti is the worst lawyer in the history of ridiculously bad lawyers. I'm trying to figure out what "National Day" this should be, because with Avenatti it really could go either way. Right now it's a toss-up between "The No Good Very Bad Lawyer Day" or "The No Good Very Bad Political Operative Day."
A federal judge on Tuesday seemed to be confused on that as well. Avenatti has been representing adult film star Stormy Daniels in a defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump. It all started when Avenatti, with his infinite superstar lawyer awesomeness, decided to build his case off of — get this…. A TWEET from the president. Trump tweeted this back in April regarding a man, allegedly sent by Trump, that had threatened her not to come forward with her story:
A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!
BOOM! Avenatti let loose the hounds of… well, a defamation suit.
But the judge on Tuesday couldn't tell if this was just bad lawyering or some kind of game of political football. Either way, he opted to rule it as both. The judge stated that the president's tweet was "rhetorical hyperbole", protected under the First Amendment, and all or part of the quote "politics and public discourse in the United States."
So forget for a moment that a federal judge has just highlighted that a defamation lawsuit between a sitting U.S. President, a porn star, and a political activist — masquerading as a lawyer — is now considered normal and business as usual. Consider for just a second that this "lawyer", is actually considering running for president. A man who has shown no qualms at all with parading women (first Daniels and then Julie Swetnick) in front of the entire world, embarrass them, and do it all for his own ugly political greed.
To everyone that donated, you just paid President Trump's lawyers over half a million dollars.
The federal judge ordered the case closed, and Stormy Daniels to pay for all the president's legal fees. And this might be the funniest thing to come out of all this. Daniels set up a Crowd Justice page, kind of like a Go Fund Me, back in April to pay for all her legal fees. As of today that page has raised $586,000. So, to everyone that donated, you just paid President Trump's lawyers over half a million dollars.
As the kids these days say… L-O-L
