WATCH: Michael Avenatti Makes Dubious Claim About DNC Support for His 2020 Run

Published

Michael “Creepy Porn Lawyer” Avenatti, who is best known for being the creepy lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels, has been teasing the idea of running for President in 2020.

An idea that no doubt came to him right from the depths of his very massive ego, because it’s doubtful that anyone else wants him to run, considering he is famous for defending a porn star and literally nothing else. Well, unless you count breaking records for most CNN interviews in one month an accolade.

Avenatti, on the other hand, claims that very important people want him to run for president, namely, “senior leadership” at the DNC.

During an appearance on MSNBC, Avenatti bragged about mysterious members of Democratic leadership who are encouraging to throw his hat in the ring for 2020, and just how successful he believes he’ll be.

From the American Mirror:

“I’ve been traveling around the country raising money for Democrats,” Avenatti told Kasie Hunt, “and I’ve received an incredible response, every state that I’ve gone to. I think I’ve surprised a lot of people.

“I’ve received a lot of encouragement in various states to run,” he said.

“I’ve received a lot of encouragement from the Democratic National Committee, and senior leadership within the Committee, frankly, to run and people want a fighter,” he continued.

He declined to name the “senior” leaders pushing him to run.

Maybe DNC Vice Chair Keith Ellison, who is being accused of domestic assault by a former girlfriend?

“People want somebody who can actually beat Donald Trump,” Avenatti insisted, apparently implying that’s him.

“I don’t care how much experience you have. I don’t care how deep you are on policy. If you can’t beat Donald Trump, you don’t have any business running for the presidency of the United States in 2020, because if you can’t beat Donald Trump, you go home,” he said.

Ooookay there, buddy, whatever you say.

Pelosi Gets Ripped for Tone Deaf ‘Thank You’ to George Floyd

Even the mainstream media savaged Madam Speaker.

Some of our elected officials really cannot read the room, and Nancy Pelosi seems to be one of them. The House Speaker has been at the forefront of the racial issues that our nation is facing today, which is all fine and good.  This is America, after all, and it certainly doesn’t appear as though we’re seeing liberty and justice for all right now. But the issue is in how Pelosi portrays her feelings on the subject that has many in America cringing. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is facing intense backlash after she thanked George Floyd for “sacrificing your life for justice” Tuesday following the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on murder and manslaughter charges. Speaking alongside the Congressional Black Caucus shortly after the verdict was handed down, the top House Democrat looked to the sky and said, “Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice. “For being there to call out to your mom,” Pelosi went on. “How heartbreaking was that? [To] call out for your mom, ‘I can’t breathe.’ “But because of you and because of thousands, millions of people around the world who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous with justice,” the speaker added. The callous nature of Pelosi’s “gratitude” was off-putting for many, even within the mainstream media sphere. “Nancy Pelosi thanks George Floyd for being murdered,” Huffington Post editor Philip Lewis summed up. “What in the actual f,” New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz reacted. “Ummm… he didn’t sacrifice his life… he was brutally, horrifically murdered. What the hell is this,” Guardian writer Hannah Parkinson tweeted. “Sacrifice implies he had a choice,” LA Times reporter Melissa Evans similarly wrote. “Oh, that is very bad. Very, very no,” GQ correspondent Julia Ioffe expressed. “real [W]hite person wearing kente…

Maxine Waters Escapes Censure, Goes on MSNBC to Gloat

It certainly doesn’t appear as though Waters has learned her lesson.

Maxine Waters is no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to her vision of the role of violence in the political process. Back in 2018, the California Congresswoman told a group of constituents that they should confront staffers for then-President Donald Trump. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters told a crowd in California over the weekend. “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” Then, just days ahead of the jury’s deliberations in the Derek Chauvin trial, Waters again suggested that Americans should be “more confrontational” regarding the case. This comment drew widespread criticism from her colleagues in Congress, and Maxine was soon facing a censure by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Now that this effort to admonish Waters has failed, the longtime Democrat seemed to take a victory lap on MSNBC. On MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” Tuesday, Waters knocked the censure efforts led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. The vote to table McCarthy’s censure resolution was 216-210 and split along party lines. “Of course, I’m criticized all the time, and of course, the Republicans make a target of me, but as you know, I am passionate on these issues,” Waters told host Joy Reid. “I’m so sorry that it causes pain oftentimes with my colleagues. Many times they’re in these districts where they are frightened, where they have a lot of racism, where they haven’t moved to the point that they can have a decent conversation about these issues and sometimes it’s very difficult for them. “But they stood up with me today,” she added. “They put…
