He’s tan, he’s rested…….
Some days, don’t you wish news delivered by the telegraph was back in vogue?
Coming from the file of “No way this would have been possible 4 years ago,” the current President of the United States MIGHT have a declared opponent just shy of the 2-year mark until his reelection.
Attorney to porn star Stormy Daniels.
Avenatti is seriously giving this a thorough vetting according to USA Today
President Trump has an early opponent emerging for the 2020 presidential election: Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti.
Avenatti, who’s risen to national fame as the porn star’s attorney amid the tempest of legal claims she’s made against the president, tweeted Wednesday that he will run if there is no other candidate “that has a real chance of beating” Trump.
He said “only a street fighter has a chance at displacing the ‘King’” and that he feels a moral obligation to run against Trump.
My head hurts.
He is even tweeting policy positions with the hashtag #fightclub.
I believe in being tough on trade but let’s not be stupid in how we address the issue. Even some of Mr. Trump’s own supporters are sounding the alarm bells. This childish bravado will ultimately cost Americans jobs. #FightClub #Basta

#FightClub? Is he the Edward Norton character or Brad Pitt? Why am I even asking this?
How does Avenatti determine if “there is no other candidate ‘that has a real chance of beating’ Trump,” and he should run? Polls? ( scratch that) Does he interview the other declared candidates like Bernie Sanders or Fauxcahanutas?
Also, when you say that only a street fighter has a shot at knocking off “The King,” how do we know that YOU are that street fighter? Alec Baldwin is at least funny intentionally at times and has a great record of verbal street fighting with people on the streets of New York.
Michael Avenatti has a record of giving red meat to a press corps that loves to hate Donald Trump and will miss him terribly when he is gone. The press has so far thrown softballs at Avenatti. How does street fighter Avenatti handle it when people throw punches back?
Maybe we will find out. Maybe this is just another stunt for attention against a guy who has owned the press so far.
In the meantime, I’m torn between wanting to speed up to get to the 2020 race and hoping that aliens invade like in Independence Day but Jeff Goldblum does not give the aliens a virus to save the world.
Sweet Meteor of Death, where are you?
