Ok, I'll admit, that one made me giggle slightly. :)

I confess to trying to put a humorous spin on my posts when I get the chance.

Blaming it on his family is exactly his speed.

It's like me saying I'm not going to try and date Kate Beckinsale anymore.

Avenatti never stood a chance. He appears to have as many haters on the left as he does the right. Nothing but a grand stander.

That and he has way too many skeletons in his closet.

That isn't surprising....I like the guy's panache well enough, but I'm not upset he's not making a POTUS run.

Even though you and I are total strangers, I'm yet willing to wager it's not at all like your saying that. LOL

She's on my list of 5. That's 5 women I'm allowed to cheat on my wife with without repercussions. She has a list of 5 as well that currently has about 48 men on it.

Yeah 'for family concerns' that a showboating porn lawyer who may be a wife beater and is almost definitely not qualified would have no chance against the formidable field of technocrats, populists, governors and career politicians in the Democratic field.

I believe he roughed up his current live-in Hollywood starlet & not his ex wife. I heard the ex spoke on his behalf.

Whichever it is, he's damaged goods. Was unqualified from the start IMO. Also the only people who took his suggestion seriously were Trumpists hoping he would run because that would be the best opportunity yet for Trump to win a second term.

Good. Let him go back to lawyering. Somebody of his temperament has no place in a position of leadership.

So another one of your heroes falls. You sure were one of Avenatti's biggest cheerleaders during the Kavanaugh hearings

For the third time this year, the attorney and 2020 presidential prospect has rolled a grenade into the Trump White House.

For the third time this year, the combative Michael Avenatti — a sustained anti-Trump fixture on cable TV who is also exploring a 2020 presidential run — has found a way to claw his way into another major scandal, potentially making a bad situation even worse for the Trump White House.

Avenatti says his latest client is a victim of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh who is prepared to take her story public in the next 48 hours.
==============================================
This sharp lawyer could turn out to be Trump's worst nightmare.
