Just a few short moments ago, the darling of the media, Michael Avenatti, was going to become the next President of the USA or so the media thought. They simply just could not get enough of him.
Avenatti faced multiple indictments Wednesday for allegedly committing fraud and aggravated identity theft related to his former adult film star Stephanie Clifford, professionally known as Stormy Daniels.
He is accused of forging Daniels’ signatureand using fake documents to persuade an agent to divert over a quarter-of-a-million dollars in payment from the porn star’s book advance.
Stephanie Ruhle, “I am intrigued, I’m excited, I’m scared, I’m a little grossed out. And you know what? I owe Michael Avenatti an apology. For the last few weeks, I’ve been saying, ‘Enough, already, Michael, I’ve seen you everywhere. What do you have left to say?’ I was wrong, brother. You have a lot to say. The Democrats could learn something from you. You are messing with Trump a lot more than they are.”
That was one of 147 appearances Avenatti made MSNBC and CNN during a 10-week period around the time of Ruhle’s comments. These platform gave him ample opportunity to attack the president and gain attention for doing so. (RELATED: CNN Hosts Avenatti 59 Times In Two Months)
If ever there was a chance for a learning experience for the media, this was it. The clues were there everywhere. He was a fraud, a jokester. Anyone with half a brain knew this was going to be a train wreck.
Will the media spend a moment in self reflection on this debacle? Doubtful, as they continue to proceed headlong with the Trump Russia Russia Russia nonsense.
Apparently facts are simply troublesome things, to be discarded in the name of the Progressive agenda.
