In his neverending quest to remain arguably relevant, lawyer-to-the-(adult film)-stars Michael Avenatti tried to get cute yesterday on Twitter by yanking the pigtails of Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.

Apparently, Avenatti took umbrage at Grassley identifying him with his most high-profile client — even though it’s only due to Stormy Daniels (and her association with Donald Trump) that Avenatti’s become a recognizable name.

(He wants to be sure everyone knows just how smart and hip he is. Much smarter than that old geezer from Iowa!)

Not content to leave it there, however, Avenatti thought to impress further via credential measuring:

I hate to break it to the guy, but one needn’t possess a law degree to understand “perjury” and FBI investigations. And I expect Chuck Grassley has better things to do with his time than concern himself with this joker’s legal career.

The Senate Judiciary Twitter account had the perfect rejoinder to Avenatti’s silliness:

Betamax, schmetamax.
