We reach time and again in to the well of hypocrisy to scoop out the muck of the mainstream media, and we’ve pulled up a magnificent variety of viscous filth in 2018 alone.
But, when it comes to hypocrisy, the left has a habit of one-upping themselves in increasingly embarrassing ways. Such is the case this week with Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, who believes that he was “defamed” by reporters at The Daily Caller.
Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult film star Stormy Daniels in her legal battles against President Donald Trump, threatened to sue reporters at The Daily Caller News Foundation for writing about his legal and business history.

Avenatti tried to claim his uninvited email was off record, even though TheDCNF never agreed to those terms.
“Let me be clear. If you and your colleagues do not stop with the hit pieces that are full of lies and defamatory statements, I will have no choice but to sue each of you and your publication for defamation,” Avenatti wrote in an email to TheDCNF.
C’mon, Michael. Did you just send an email titled “Cut It Out” to a news organization?
Also, this isn’t how “defamation” works. You would hope that a lawyer would understand this, right?
Furthermore, this becomes a free speech issue rather quickly, with a supposedly well-versed legal technician erring on the side of totalitarian censorship. That’s not a good look an a lawyer who represents a woman whose entire career has been predicated on an extremely salient backbone of the First Amendment.
Avenatti’s childish petulance didn’t stop there.
“If you think I’m kidding, you really don’t know anything about me. This is the last warning,” he warned.
The entire Stormy Daniels affair has been a horrific sideshow of pathetic political obstruction and liberal straw-grasping. While Robert Mueller slaves away in the witch hunt that is #RussiaGate, the left is keeping Stormy awfully close, fearing the worst when it comes for their first attempt at delegitimizing the President by linking him to Vladimir Putin.
As far as Avenatti goes, this isn’t his first brush with incompetence this month, having already made several erroneous contacts with lawyers named Michael Cohen who were completely unrelated
to Donald Trump.
