Do not want:
Michael Avenatti — attorney, potential presidential candidate, and owner of a strong jawline — dropped in on the Democratic Party’s summer meeting on Thursday as he continued to tease a 2020 run.
“I think I’m a man of substance, frankly,” Avenatti told reporters in the lobby of Chicago’s Hyatt Regency hotel after a short speech to the DNC’s Ethnic Council. “I think actually when people hear me speak and when I answer questions about the issues, they’re taken aback in a significant way.”
The lawyer best known for representing porn actress Stormy Daniels took something of a victory lap this week after Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen implicated the president in campaign finance violations related to hush money paid to Daniels during the 2016 campaign.
I’m partial to either Amy Klobuchar or Kirsten Gillibrand at this stage, but that’s just superficial leanings. But I am a hard no on Avenatti. I mean, if I had my first choice it would be John Fetterman, who is running to be Lt. Gov. in Pennsylvania, but I don’t think he has the exposure right now.
