Creepy Porn Lawyer and showboat attorney Michael Avenatti escalated his feud with Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson on Saturday night, claiming in a series of tweets that he was investigating a potential “assault on a gay latino immigrant” committed by Carlson at a Virginia country club. To substantiate his wild accusation, Avenatti posted a video of an altercation seeming to vaguely resemble the incident- in which Carlson tells an off-camera figure that he “better get the f*** out of here.”
However, Avenatti’s brief and obscured video clip doesn’t seem to contain any proof of Tucker committing physical violence towards anyone, let alone a “gay latino immigrant-” raising the possibility that the CPL’s latest smear is nothing more than another opportunistic and completely uncorroborated smear, akin to the Julie Swetnick accusations against Brett Kavanaugh. (The Senate Judiciary Committee concluded in a report regarding the allegations of sexual assualt committed by Kavanaugh that “the evidence appears to support the position that Julie Swetnick and Mr. Avenatti criminally conspired to make materially false statements to the Committee and obstruct the Committee’s investigation.“)
Tucker, who earlier in the week was the victim of a home stalking and harassment operation conducted by Antifa group “Smash Racism D.C,” responded to Avenatti’s allegations in a statement he provided to The Hill.
“On October 13, I had dinner with two of my children and some family friends at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia,Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson. My daughter had never seen the man before. She answered: ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The man responded, ‘Are you Tucker’s whore?’ He then called her a ‘f*** c***.’ “
“My daughter returned to the table in tears,” the statement continues. “She soon left the table and the club. My son, who is also a student, went into the bar to confront the man. I followed. My son asked the man if he’d called his sister a ‘whore’ and a ‘c**t.’ The man admitted he had, and again become profane. My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face and told him to leave the bar, which he soon did.”
“Immediately after the incident, I described these events to the management of the Farmington Country Club. The club spent more than three weeks investigating the incident. Last week, they revoked the man’s membership and threw him out of the club.”
“I love my children. It took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what I wanted to do. I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger.”
“But I restrained myself. I did not assault this man, and neither did my son. That is a lie. Nor did I know the man was gay or Latino, not that it would have mattered. What happened on October 13 has nothing to do with identity politics. It was a grotesque violation of decency. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.”
Avenatti would go on to peddle a claim that Tucker’s daughter was “drinking underage” in implying that she couldn’t be believed- a sick irony considering the CPL’s track record of advancing dubious narratives of sexual assault supposedly beyond skepticism on the basis of coming from a female accuser. Avenatti’s trust in women seems to be suspended when he’s presented with the opportunity to make unsubstantiated allegations against Carlson, and by extension, his family- coming from an individual who was seemingly banned from a country club for calling a woman a “w****.”
