Showboat attorney and former cable news regular Michael Avenatti is considering entering the Democratic primary for President of the United States, after earlier announcing he wouldn’t be a candidate in the 2020 election.
The lawyer formerly known for fiery segments as a guest on MSNBC appears to have reconsidered, stating in a text message to the Washington Examiner that he plans on making a decision on a campaign by the fall.
Avenatti will presumably face an uphill battle to convince Democratic voters that he’s worthy of their presidential nomination, considering he’s currently facing federal criminal charges related to an alleged extortion of Nike. The California lawyer could face life in prison if he’s found guilty on the charges, complicating the prospect of his Presidential campaign.
In a Friday CNBC appearance, the California lawyer said that he’s “increasingly concerned that the Dems don’t have the right fighter to go toe to toe with Trump. And the future of the republic and our way of life is on the line. He is a brawler who has no bounds. The Dems need a guy who can match him punch for punch. I may be that guy.”
Avenatti claims that he’s the “fighter” the crowded Democratic primary field is currently missing. Apparently if Avenatti’s a fighter, getting fired as a lawyer by your most well-known client and being indicted for felony crimes constitutes winning.
Avenatti clarified that he plans on running for President in 2024 against Donald Trump Jr. if his 2020 campaign doesn’t come together. The loudmouth lawyer has engaged in a running feud with the President’s son for years, at the latter’s behest.
Trump Jr. could be looking forward to a potential Avenatti Presidential campaign, as the celebrity showman stands a considerable chance of totally embarrassing himself on a national stage.
Kanye West Announces Presidential Campaign; 2020 Spoiler?
A shock entry to the Presidential race.
Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION
— ye (@kanyewest) July 5, 2020
West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.
Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.
However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.
West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.
Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
