Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti is apparently worried that his fifteen minutes of fame might be over. He is now teasing at a 2020 presidential run. It looks like a desperate cry for attention.
The Daily Caller reports:
AVENATTI OPENS DOOR TO CHALLENGING TRUMP IN 2020
Michael Avenatti, the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, said Wednesday that he is open to challenging President Donald Trump in 2020.
Avenatti responded to a question on Twitter about when he planned to announce a 2020 presidential bid. The attorney said he would run for office if Trump sought re-election and if no other viable candidate challenged the Republican.
“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,” said Avenatti, who has predicted that Trump will resign before the end of his first term.
“We can’t relive 2016. I love this country, our values and our people too much to sit by while they are destroyed.”
In an earlier tweet, Avenatti said “only a street fighter has a chance at displacing the ‘King.’”
Avenatti first gained national attention as Daniels’s lawyer in her legal fight with former Trump attorney Michael Cohen. Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in October 2016, allegedly to cover up an affair that Trump had with the adult film star in 2006.
This guy is nuts if he thinks he stands a chance at beating Trump, let alone getting nominated by a major party.
