Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is apparently still considering a run for president, despite his recent arrest on domestic abuse charges. This is pointless. He was a marginal choice as a candidate before his arrest. Now he is toxic. There’s no way he’ll get enough support to do this.
USA Today reports:
Michael Avenatti ‘still considering’ running for president after domestic violence arrest
Attorney Michael Avenatti says despite his run-in with the law Wednesday evening over an alleged domestic violence incident, he is still debating a bid for the White House.
“I’m still considering it,” Avenatti told USA TODAY in a text message.
For months, Avenatti has been flirting with a 2020 presidential bid and in recent weeks has started building out a possible campaign and strategy if he does run. He did not answer questions about the incident but said his “first priority right now is clearing my name.”
“I will not be intimidated,” Avenatti said in a text message. “The measure of a person is how they get up when they are knocked down.”
But the hurdles in his way are adding up. On Wednesday, Avenatti, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump who rose to prominence as the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of domestic violence.
Avenatti’s 15 minutes of fame were up long ago, he just can’t let it go. He wants to stay in the spotlight for as long as possible.
