This wasn’t even a fair fight. Michael Avenatti tried to bring his tough guy game but Tucker dismantled him so easily. Tucker tried to keep things calm at the beginning but it quickly became clear that Avenatti had no interest in being nice.

‘You’re Exploiting Her and You Know It’: Carlson Battles Avenatti LIVE on Set
Tucker Carlson debated Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti, live on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday, after weeks of trading barbs off-air.
Carlson asked Avenatti, whom he’s often called the “Creepy Porn Lawyer,” about his presidential ambitions, after Avenatti spoke at a rally after President Trump’s summit with Vladimir Putin.
Carlson said that Avenatti was engaging in “reckless rhetoric” and accusing Russia of “an act of war” in its alleged meddling in American elections, when Avenatti compared the allegations to posting Russian troops on its American border.
Avenatti called that accusation “ironic,” saying that it is Carlson who uses “reckless” political rhetoric.
Carlson disagreed, adding that Avenatti was recklessly “exploiting” Daniels, his client.
“You’re exploiting her and you know that,” Carlson said.

Avenatti probably won’t be back any time soon. He wouldn’t want to go through that again.
