Despite showing remarkable restraint over the past two weeks as the late hits on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh materialized, you had to know that given the fact that Michael Avenatti was behind this latest hit, that President Trump would have to weigh in.
And he did.
Avenatti is a third rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He is just looking for attention and doesn’t want people to look at his past record and relationships – a total low-life!

And Avenatti responded:
Trump doesn’t even know anything about my background. Knows nothing about my history of over $1 Billion in verdicts and settlements. I have represented Republicans and Democrats. I have represented hard working people throughout this nation.

And he’s also had to pay a $10 million judgment for defrauding a law partner, and that billion dollar judgment was reduced to $25 million, and $5 million in federal tax liens, and he’s, according to court documents, a crappy husband and father who owes $200,000/month in alimony and child support.
This allegation by Avenatti is going to collapse. There are two real shames here. First, the woman who made them will not end up with the mental health care she obviously needs. And Avenatti will not end up disbarred and sharing a cell with Bubba.
