We can't make this stuff up. Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Stormy Daniels, wants to run for president against Donald Trump.
The anti-Trump porn star lawyer said Wednesday that if there is no viable candidate against President Tump, he will run for office, Politico reported.
“IF (big) he seeks re-election, I will run, but only if I think that there is no other candidate in the race that has a REAL chance at beating him. We can't relive 2016. I love this country, our values and our people too much to sit by while they are destroyed. #FightClub #Basta,“ Avenatti tweeted.
Avenatti, who has garnered national attention as the attorney for Daniels, the porn actress who is suing the president following an alleged 2006 affair, said the court filing was “part of a smear campaign” and stressed that he doesn’t personally owe any of the money.
The lawyer has his own legal troubles, as a scandal over his failure to pay for inventory for his coffee company has prompted several public responses from Stormy's attack dog. The whole episode just smacks of desperate people looking to cash in at the president's expense. We don't think he has the ghost of a chance to win, but we are looking forward to the Trump tweets.
