No surprise
For some strange reason I have never felt the need to defend Avenatti.

He's a doppelganger for Republican partisans to use in place of Trump, much as Franken was a doppelganger for Roy Moore.

Well, we asked the Vienna Boys Choir but none of them were up for being the first to stab Caesar. We had to go with someone not so pure. Avanatti is perfect for the job.

I started this thread and I don't even care about Avennati. I do follow current events, however.

I wonder why that is? Could it be that we don't care? That whatever issues this lawyer has it doesn't change the President's actions.

It doesn't changed that Trump screwed around on his wife with porn stars. It doesn't change that Trump paid at least 5 women for their silence and Avenatti is representing 3 of them.

What I love about Avenatti is that he is effectively exposing Trump as the scumbag he is. Does that mean that Avenatti doesn't have his own issues that are questionable? No. But Avenatti has never been on a ballot. Avenatti is a good tv attorney which Giuliani is not. Hes a fighter, he's smart and he's articulate. They love him on CNN and MSNBC.

Lol are you celebrating "winning" a thread? This is a thread of rational participants. No one is contesting your statements because blind partisanship doesn't effect everyone the same. It looks like Michael has some issues, the rest of us just don't have the interest in being labeled as hypocrites. If he's a shady person and has broken the law then he should be held accountable. Simple as that. No one here seems to have an interest in making excuses for him while not holding others to the same standards. Some people have no issues with that, to each their own I guess.

No, Avenatti and what people think of him are not binary support or oppose conditions. Not caring is not the same as agreeing or not disagreeing.

Yet, they are not disagreeing, they are certainly not posting any facts to contradict the lights out posts I have been posting.

They say they donít are, heck you started the thread and say you dont Care.

Curious when one demonstrates that the subject of the thread is beneath contempt that our correspondents claim they donít care

Huh

But you've completely failed to demonstrate why anyone should care. Framing that failure as a success is a rather Trumpian thing to do.

Beneath contempt for failing morals standards that are never applied to Trump sycophants, family, or Dear Leader himself.

Yes, if Avenatti is beneath contempt then Trump is beyond description. Hypocrisy is a common human fault, but trying to defend Trump by smearing Avenatti seems to be hoping that other people have moral standards that he does not. Unfortunately, the strategy only works on people who don't know anything about Trump.

Disagreeing will not serve a useful purpose. You will not be convinced of anything other that what you already believe, so that would be pointless. None of the accusations have had any impact on his client or her case. They probably never will.

I see you have not figured out why I started this thread. There are two reasons. One was a failed attempt at influencing someone else. The other was to be a shiny object to distract from off topic postings in another thread.

What you don't seem to grasp is that Avenatti's actions are not relevant to much of anything unless they impact his client's case. Add to that anything you can hit him with can easily just look at Trump's record and find an equivalent action. Maybe you could start another thread just to compare the two. Start a short list of one man's shortcomings and see what parallels we can find.

Of course they have, he had to withdraw from the NY case because of his sleazy thirsty reputation, just to name one.

Further, as I have pointed out repeatedly, Thirsty is all sett to speak at the Democratic WingDing which is precursor to running for President, as such the claim "Avenatti's actions are not relevant to much of anything unless they impact his client's case" is spectacularly false.

The judge today ruled that @SheraBechard has persuasive evidence that @MichaelAvenatti illegally pressured her former lawyer into handing over her confidential information. Only @MichaelAvenatti or @realDonaldTrump would call that a “bogus” lawsuit.

Basta baby!

Avenatti shows his true colors

Thirsty grifter, attention seeking scam artist, and one of the leading Candidates for the Democratic nomination, Michael Avenatti, shows his true colors with a misogynistic, body shaming attack on a critic

https://twitter.com/MichaelAvenatti/...20839509643264

absolute garbage, but what do you expect from a Rahm Emmanuel acolyte and contingent fee class action attorney.

Avenatti 2020!

Let me get this straight...

Trump bases his presidential campaign and subsequent presidency on racism and misogyny, often making negative remarks about women and their appearances.

A far-right wingnut "journalist" Laura Loomer supports Trump (i.e. the man who called Daniel's "horse face", body-shamed a former Miss America winner over her weight, etc.)

Avanetti posts a pic which both focuses on her appearance and makes her look bad.

Why should Loomer be upset? She supports guys who criticize women's appearance. She should be flattered. "Hey, insulting appearances is what good people do".

Avanetti may or may not have been wrong to post the pic, but frankly, I think any complaints lodged against him by Loomer (or any Trump supporter) smacks of Hypocrisy.

NEW RECORD!

"She should have been flattered." damn, that is some next level misogyny.

Whataboutism is a craven defense of egregiously terrible conduct like Avenatti's, and the above quoted post shows why such arguments are so terrible.

Perhaps you can point out one of the articles she has written where she has criticized Trump for insulting women's appearances.

Hey, she loves her some Trump. Trump insults women and fixates on their appearance. Why should we care if she got her feelings hurt when someone does the same to her?

Those in glass houses and all...

say, there is that tu quoque! Again, because it must be literally impossible to actually address bad conduct from the left on its own terms.

Or at least without doubling down like the last misogynistic post

Tell us how the woman should have felt flattered about Mike Avenatti's abuse. maybe she was asking for it, huh?

tell us more about how she should feel flattered.

Avenatti is not a Republican... but you were not going to actually address his misogynistic statement at all, now were you? Which makes your post more than a little hypocritical, now doesn't it?

protip: Yes, it does

Still waiting to hear whether the women (and the rest of the Trumpkin supporters) are being hypocritical.

Simple yes or no answer would suffice. You can do that, can't you?

Look on your keyboard... . 2 or 3 characters. That's all you need.

Hey, I'm just following in Trump's footsteps. Insulting women=activity to be admired and respected.

Quote:
tell us more about how she should feel flattered.

"She should have been flattered."
Already explained it to you.

Trump is respected by the woman. Trump insults (other) women. Woman doesn't criticize him for it. Woman must think insulting women is something acceptable and/or to be admired.

Not really sure why you think that's such a complex argument.

No, but Trump is. And so are many/most of his supporters (and even the ones who claim they aren't republicans are still supportive of the republican cause.)

So the hypocrisy is that a Trump supporter (one who likes a president who insults women) is complaining about someone insulting a woman.

NO. I answered your silly little fallacious red herring.

Avenatti is being hypocritical and misogynistic, his supporters are being hypocritical and misogynistic, your posts are next level hypocritical and misogynistic.

At least you admit it, which is good.

protip: Yes, it does
It is highly enjoyable to watch how much Avenatti infuriates Trump supporters.
Since he has no chance of getting anywhere with a nomination for 2020, I fully approve of you or others wasting their time and energy railing against him.

The real reason why you are so upset about Avenatti is that he is a mirror image of Trump - only younger and better looking.

A snapping turtle is better looking than Trump.
