Watch as the Media Worships Michael Avenatti

Will Donald Trump Win the 2020 Election?

Last year the media came down with a fever and the only cure was Michael Avenatti.

The fame-fueled solicitor was riding high, representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels, whom he had talked into suing President Trump — and then, later, an obscure woman Avenatti claimed attended several gang-rape parties with now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The media couldn’t get enough. Over the course of last spring, Avenatti, according to the Media Research Center, was invited on national TV for 147 separate interviews, with 131 happening on CNN and MSNBC. The combined haul of all that earned media is estimated at over $175 million, according to the Washington Free Beacon.


Today the media seem to be treating Avenatti like an embarrassing ex they’re trying to shake from their collective memory.

But the media’s Avenatti obsession really happened. And it’s worth recalling, especially as some — such as CNN’s Brian Stelter — actually held him up as a viable 2020 candidate to run against President Trump.

Watch as the Media Worships Michael Avenatti:

ANNOUNCER: “Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti is laying down the law. And is he really thinking about running for president?”


SCIUTTO: “Joining me now live, the man himself, Michael Avenatti.”

CUOMO: “Let’s talk to somebody who understands the system very well, Michael Avenatti.”

MAHER: “He is Donald Trump’s worst nightmare, Michael Avenatti!”

CAMEROTA: “Michael, thanks so much for being here.”

AVENATTI: “Good morning.”

CAMEROTA: “Did you talk to Stormy Daniels last night? What was her reaction?”

SCIUTTO: ‘Did the President just get a new challenger for 2020? Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti may have just tossed his hat into the ring.”

STELTER: “Looking at the 2020, one reason why I’m taking you seriously as a contender is because of your presence on cable news.”

BUTLER: “First, let me take a moment to brag on my former student. This dude right here, I think of him as in a Justice League with Robert Muller to save our democracy.”

BURNETT: “A nine-year-old boy has been reunited with his mother in Guatemala. And the person who helped make this happen? Stormy Daniels’ lawyer and potential presidential candidate, Michael Avenatti.”

REPORTER: “What do you say to critics who say this is a publicity stunt?”

AVENATTI: “Doing good work, having kids reunited with their parents — I mean, my record speaks for itself.”

COLLINS: “Probably one of the biggest stars we have at this dinner tonight, of course, this is Michael Avenatti.”

BEHAR: “And the only person right here Donald Trump fears more than Robert Miller — Mueller — please welcome Michael Avenatti. I do think that Trump is afraid of you.”

COLBERT: “Lawyers don’t normally do talk shows.”

AVENATTI: “I’m not your normal lawyer.”

MAHER: “Yes, you are something of a folk hero now. Let’s be honest, the whole reason that we’re in love with you and Stormy is because we think you guys are the tip of the spear that’s going to take down Donald Trump.”
