“Creepy Porn Lawyer” is the nickname that Tucker Carlson gave Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing the porn star who goes by the name “Stormy Daniels”, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Ms. Clifford, as “Stormy”, made a name for herself after the election of President Trump, by alleging that the now-president had relations with her back in 2006, shortly after Mr. Trump married Melania.
This revelation was against the agreement Trump’s attorney at the time, Michael Cohen, had made with the actress, paying her about $130,000 in “hush money.”
Ms. Clifford opted to disregard this agreement, since it had value as sensationalism paparazzi style “news”, and Mr. Avenatti represented her in this effort. But now, Avenatti has gone further, making a name for himself and even postulating the idea of running for President himself.
His own publicity in fact, has surged far past his client’s, with multiple TV spots on CNN and other mainstream media and cable networks.
Tucker Carlson dubbed him “Creepy Porn Lawyer”, to which Avenatti obviously took exception, while not changing a whit of his own doings. In this session, though, Mr. Carlson agreed not to call Mr. Avenatti “Creepy Porn Lawyer” if Avenatti would come on Tucker’s program for an interview. That interview is shown here:
Tucker was clearly determined not to let Avenatti get away with saying nonsense, but in the same sense, there was so much more that could have been done. One of the greatest pieces of hypocrisy Tucker did address, which was the matter of “Stormy Daniels” actually being used by the attorney to bolster his own fame, whilst the actress continued to perform and began getting in trouble.
Mr. Avenatti tried, rather absurdly, to pull the morality card as a foundation for his side of the argument, saying that it is immoral behavior for the President to cheat on his wife and young son, Barron. However, this wasn’t flying either. Even by saying such a thing on national television, this allegation, true or not is an outrage against the President’s family. And again, Avenatti was trying to use the Mr. Trump’s behavior against him to try to seal the Left’s connection that Trump is immoral, and thus unfit for presidency.
Of course… Bill Clinton comes to mind as the poster child for moral behavior as president, whose wife lost in 2008 and 2016 in her own bid. Of course, the left is into all manner of support for identity politics, which have created anywhere from ten to thirty “gender” identifications for people who are simply mentally ill and do not want to take responsibility for themselves.
While much of this interview is more of a near-shouting match rather than a discussion and dispassionate debate, lovers of Mr. Carlson will certainly feel that he scored a lot of points interviewing and blowing away the Creepy Porn Lawyer.
