Tucker Carlson has been trying for months to get Stormy Daniels lawyer and potential 2020 Democrat candidate Michael Avenatti to appear on his show and last night it finally happened. It was an epic piece of television.

Tucker started the interview civilly and said he would refrain from using his usual “Creepy Porn Lawyer” moniker for Avenatti. He said that he wanted to take him seriously and he tried but it couldn’t last. Avenatti was visibly angry and hostile from the start. He didn’t even respond when Tucker welcomed him to the show.

Here are some highlights from the FOX News Insider:

‘You’re Exploiting Her and You Know It’: Carlson Battles Avenatti LIVE on Set

Tucker Carlson debated Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti, live on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday, after weeks of trading barbs off-air.

Carlson asked Avenatti, whom he’s often called the “Creepy Porn Lawyer,” about his presidential ambitions, after Avenatti spoke at a rally after President Trump’s summit with Vladimir Putin.

Carlson said that Avenatti was engaging in “reckless rhetoric” and accusing Russia of “an act of war” in its alleged meddling in American elections, when Avenatti compared the allegations to posting Russian troops on its American border.

Avenatti called that accusation “ironic,” saying that it is Carlson who uses “reckless” political rhetoric.

Carlson disagreed, adding that Avenatti was recklessly “exploiting” Daniels, his client.

“You’re exploiting her and you know that,” Carlson said.

Tucker delivered the knockout towards the end in this exchange:

Avenatti: When’s the last time you saw porn?

Carlson: Oh, you busted me. Actually I’m into humiliation porn, that’s why I watch you on CNN.

Watch. The. Whole. Thing.

Some people chose to focus on the chyron when the moniker came back at the end:

Odds are Avenatti will not be back on the show any time soon.
