I suspect many might argue with me, but the sordid mess that is Michael Avenatti is a choreographed distraction. A ploy to make the Right believe “something” is happening favorable to their side when in fact, it means nothing. It’s an exhaust valve to dilute the anger we should be feeling about the crumbling American political process.
He is a peripheral, inconsequential figure on the political playground.
A symbolic jester seeking to cheaply rattle the narrative, but he is ultimately a bobble-head of dissension and attack. His fame will wither on its own and the less we have to deal with him in the public eye, the better for all concerned. His continued presence is a ploy, and now, a distraction.
The Democrats are stealing the election and destroying the sanctity and integrity of American culture and history but we’re too busy watching this Nerf ball of triviality.
Michael Avenatti, who skyrocketed to fame as a critic of President Donald Trump and the lawyer for porn actress Stormy Daniels, was arrested Wednesday and booked on a felony domestic violence charge, Los Angeles police said.
The alleged victim in the case had visible injuries, according to Officer Tony Im, a police spokesman. But Avenatti slammed the allegation as “completely bogus” and “fabricated and meant to do harm to my reputation” in a statement released by his law firm.
Avenatti, who has said he’s mulling a 2020 presidential run, posted $50,000 bail and was released about four hours after he was arrested Wednesday on the same block where he lives in a skyscraper apartment.
Police declined to provide any details about the alleged victim, including that person’s relationship to Avenatti.
As he left the police station Wednesday, Avenatti said he had never hit a woman and said he’s been an advocate for women’s rights his entire career.
“I wish to thank the hard working men and woman of the LAPD for their professionalism and their work today. They had no option in light of the allegations,” Avenatti said. “I am looking forward to a full investigation, at which point I am confident that I will be fully exonerated.”
He probably will be, too, but not before the distraction has done its…distracting.
