Michael Avenatti just humiliated Giuliani with a brilliant piece of morning advice

- Mei 18, 2018

While Trump’s newest addition to his team, Rudy Giuliani, has arguably been more of a liability for the already embattled president than an asset, one person has managed to capitalize off of his sideshow attorney more than anyone else: Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti.

Despite having suggested along with Trump only yesterday that there was an FBI informant in Trump’s campaign, Giuliani this morning walked back his claim, admitting that he didn’t know “for sure, nor does the president, if there really was” an such a person.

Michael Avenatti offered some advice that the president’s attorney – amid his unabating gaffes – would be well served to follow.

Unsurprisingly, this is not the first outlandish claim made by the man formerly known as “America’s Mayor.” Only days ago, Giuliani seemed to unilaterally absolve Trump from wrongdoing by suggesting that a president cannot get indicted for a crime, a claim that has since been put into question even by members of the GOP.

“All they get to do is write a report,” Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told CNN. “They can’t indict. At least [Mueller’s team] acknowledged that to us after some battling, they acknowledged that to us.”

 

While the veracity of Giuliani’s claim, as with anyone in the Trump administration, still leaves much to be desired, the underlying suggestion was clear: even if Trump did something wrong, he is above the law. Not a great talking point for a White House currently mired in scandal.

Then, too, Avenatti predictably pushed back on Giuliani’s absurd suggestion, calling into question not only his judgment, but his entire career.

The remarks come on the heels of a longstanding and public feud between the two attorneys. Last week, Avenatti challenged Giuliani to a public debate. Unfortunately, Giuliani retained enough sense in his addled mind to reject the idea of being publicly demolished by Avenatti in an open forum. He explained away his refusal with a devastating insult towards Daniel’s advocate in an interview with Business Insider:

I don’t get involved with pimps. The media loves to give him room because he makes these roundabout charges and they turn out to mean nothing. I think he’s going to get himself in serious trouble,” Giuliani said.

Avenatti responded to the Trump surrogate’s slanderous comment with a perfectly crafted comeback of his own.

Trump may have vowed to hire the best people, but he ended up with Giuliani instead. Of course, while that may be a problem for the president, it’s good news for everyone else.
