Liberal icon and media hero (but I repeat myself) Michael Avenatti is having a no good, very bad, horrible week.

On Monday, porn star Stormy Daniels’s former lawyer weighed in on Twitter about the upcoming Maine Senate race between incumbent Sen. Susan Collins (R) and her newly-announced Democratic challenger Sara Gideon (D). Here’s what the disgraced lawyer had to say:

Gideon has tweeted out a list of endorsements she has received so far, but for some strange reason Avenatti’s endorsement is not noted on the list.

In any event, after Avenatti called Collins a “fraud” – presumably over her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court – NRSC adviser Matt Whitlock slid into the comments section of the tweet to point out the pot, kettle, black nature of Avenatti’s accusation (via Twitchy):

Whitlock, in fact, absolutely roasted Avenatti over and over again:



Unfortunately for Avenatti (but fortunately for us), things only got worse for him the next day.

On Tuesday afternoon, he tweeted this question about “The View”‘s Meghan McCain after she pushed back on AOC’s absurd claim that border detention facilities are like Nazi concentration camps:

As you can imagine, it did not go well. Avenatti took particular issue with Ben Shapiro’s criticism, and challenged him to a debate:

The responses were hilarious:

As Hot Air‘s John Sexton documented here, the two went back and forth for a bit afterwards but it’s not clear whether or not an actual debate will take place.

My personal view is that Shapiro should not waste his valuable time. For reasons Whitlock outlined and more, Avenatti is not worth it. He’s a dishonest blowhard, an exploiter of women, and a fraud who will say and do anything for attention, fame, and money – even and especially at the expense of the truth.
