Now that Michael Avenatti has found a way to insert himself back into the media’s current obsession, the Kavanaugh hearings, he’s not going to miss the chance to try to launch himself right into the middle of American politics.

In a move that is called for by absolutely no one, Avenatti, who is best known for defending Stormy Daniels earlier this year and spending the entire month of May in the CNN green room, has decided that he really should consider running for President.

In a laughable and dubious claim, the “creepy porn lawyer” recently said that top DNC leadership is encouraging him to run, which doesn’t make a lot of sense since top DNC leadership is most likely considering running themselves.

The American Mirror reports:

“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.

There isn’t one single piece of evidence to indicate that Avenatti could beat Donald Trump considering no one knows who he is other than a man who represents a porn star who had an extra-marital affair with a man who would eventually become President, but his ego is so big, it likely doesn’t matter.

Of course, if he did run, it would be hilarious and wonderful, so I don’t know about you, but I’m all for #Avenatti2020.
