Michael Avenatti, best known as the Creepy Porn Lawyer, repeatedly bragged that he could beat Trump.

With his characteristic bravado, Avenatti portrayed himself as someone who “absolutely” could beat Trump and would be Trump’s “worst nightmare”.

Just two days ago, Avenatti claimed his chances of beating Trump had improved:

Lawyer Michael Avenatti says his chances of running a successful presidential bid in 2020 “have only gone up” following his arrest on suspicion of felony domestic violence and public criticism from his highest-profile client, adult-film star Stormy Daniels.

“I think the field is shaping up to be even more advantageous for someone like me, not less,” Avenatti told Politico in an article published Sunday. “I think my chances have only gone up, not gone down.”

Avenatti elaborated in an email to The Hill, saying he is “still seriously considering” running for president.

“If the Democrats think they can beat Donald Trump without taking him on directly and aggressively, they are kidding themselves,” Avenatti said in the email. “Unfortunately, many of the likely candidates are simply not tough enough or battle tested enough to beat him.”

He just cut and run. And he blames his family for the decision.

Avenatti’s decision comes as we await a judge’s decision that may require Avenatti’s client, Stormy Daniels, to pay several hundred thousand dollars in legal fees for a frivolous lawsuit brought by Avenatti on her behalf and in which Avenatti’s conduct is at issue.

Avenatti also has been referred by the Senate Judiciary Committee for criminal investigation based on his representation of Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick, and Avenatti faces a domestic violence complaint in Los Angeles from a woman who is not his wife.

But yeah, blame it on your family, chump.
