There’s nothing quite like political party infighting.
This past week, two of the Left’s most cartoonish characters collided.
Can’t-get-enough-TV-time attorney Michael Avenatti slammed actress-turned-Paul-Revere Alyssa Milano over an aged tweet she fired off over allegations of domestic violence on the part of the used car salesm– I mean, lawyer.
Back in November, Michael was arrested after an ex-girlfriend accused him of grabbing her wrist and ejecting her from his apartment (here).
However, in February, it was announced that Michael wouldn’t be criminally charged.
But Alyssa, oddly, previously made clear her position on allegations: We are to “believe all women.” Therefore, strangely, if it is untrue that a man did something a woman says he did, it is true that a man did something a woman says he did.
Or, to put it another way:
Here’s what Alyssa had to say in November:

As pointed out by Fox News:
The hashtag “Basta” is a Spanish word meaning “enough,” which Avenatti often used on Twitter in posts critical of Donald Trump.
No word on why Michael waited until now to respond, but on Monday, he let Alyssa have it:
.@Alyssa_Milano – you preach about Trump’s need to follow the constitution but then ignore it yourself. You are a disgusting hypocrite. I don’t care what side you are on. Where the hell is my apology for you proclaiming my guilt for something I was never even charged with? https://t.co/mWAwtmF3Z9

It should be noted that the domestic case is still open.
But Michael’s got bigger charges to face: The lawyer — who made 254 television appearances in just one year — was indicted in May for allegedly trying to blackmail Nike and could be going to prison for a very long time (here).
Last week, the California State Bar motioned to suspend his license to practice law, given that his alleged criminality “poses a substantial threat of harm to clients or the public.”
