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.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
