“Senior leadership” of the Democratic National Committee wants “creepy porn lawyer” Michael Avenatti to run for president, according to Michael Avenatti.
During an appearance on MSNBC, the creepy porn lawyer talked big about his aspirations.
“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.
