Jr with the Valentine's Day Avennati tweet

ūüėÜ

He is a chip off the old block.

He was the face of the Left and their media sources for quite a long time. End of an era?Error?

He was never the face of the Left. It may have appeared that way to people who run in certain circles, though.

Or who watch CNN and MSMBC....which are two networks with lots of influence. This guy was on every night and praised by many. Own it. That’s the problem. That’s why Trump will have another 4 years. Own it. Talk about it. Admit the mistake and move on. Not everyone thought this guy was who the left thought he was but to ignore is exactly why they can’t win in 2020. People make mistakes. Admit it and move on. It’s so easy.

Why shouldn't¬†Donald jr tweet that clip. It‚Äôs perfect. Anyone that watches it including democrats have to think WTF...he‚Äôs right. To think the democrats have anyone that will beat Trump in 2020 is delusional. Look at what he is going against. Bernie may¬†have a chance but seriously, America isn't ready for Pete and his husband. Biden is done. He was done months¬†ago. I like Amy. Kind of find her hot. In a wired presidential type of way. Warren isn‚Äôt going anywhere and Bloomberg was asked by a fan to say ‚Äústop and frisk‚ÄĚ recently and he did...wtf..it was a bababooee moment...I am more left then right¬†and believe Trump should have never been elected but he was and he will be again. Anyone thinking there‚Äôs a chance he won‚Äôt will be very disappointed. The left is getting ready to call each other out in front of the country and it‚Äôs going to make so many confused and maybe not vote. Democrats need a leader. They have nobody....

Historical negationism (sometimes called "historical revisionism" or "revisionist history"), the distortion of the historical record such that certain events appear to have occurred and/or impacted history in a way that is in drastic disagreement with the historical record and/or consensus, and usually meant to advance a (socio-)political view or agenda.

True. Like people claiming he was the face of the left or a serious candidate.

Yeah, wasn't he also touted as a possible Democratic candidate for President?  Pretty sure I saw this everywhere because he was the bull dog that could take on Trump.

The people supporting this guy and all giddy with delight when he went after Trump have egg on their faces today. 

Are you sure? I’m pretty sure he was convicted for trying to extort Nike. Attempted extortion isn’t really a crime, right? I’m sure Barr will step in.

Aren't you a lawyer?  Seems weird you would ask that question.  

Back in the day the Democrats were touting him as the next big thing to take on Trump.  Possible Democrat presidential candidate too! 

Remember those days? Yeah, me too. Good times.

Which Democrats were touting Avenatti as the candidate to take on Trump?

(If it helps, I do know several people here who said that he was a loudmouth d-bag which makes him the perfect public foil for Trump.)

Well he was on CNN 75 times in a 2 1/2 month period and a regular on MSNBC as well.  For some reason our left stations fawned over him.   Even from the start you could tell he was a snake.

Shows the desperation to cling to anything anti-Trump, no matter how slimy it is.

Where is all of this nonsense coming from that he was a presidential candidate. That is not even close to the truth.

He never was. It was the media that was pushing him as a candidate.

Then youd be able to point out who was serious...instead we get these general posts that democrats said, or he was on TV alot.

That's pretty much what he was doing. If only the DOJ had a rule that he couldn't be prosecuted if he was "thinking of running"...

Victory laps being taken before the race is over?

Avenatti has a seemingly trustworthy person, under oath, swearing that these things happened.  He got Kavanaugh on the record as to questions he wanted answered.  He's attempted multiple times in the past couple of days to have the FBI interview his client.

It's a serious thing to have someone willing to go under oath and claim an assault took place.  Avenatti has that, and it should be considered evidence of sexual assault by Kavanaugh.

I think victory laps are safe now

Remember that DVD that Michael Avenatti tweeted about a few months ago? He said today on The View that the DVD was in the hands of law enforcement.

Just a reminder:

Donald Trump, who was unfaithful to all three of his wives, paid a porn star to have unprotected sex just after his wife gave birth to his son. Then he paid her hush money with campaign funds.

Trump did that. He is a man of low character and has not changed. He is a terrible human.

But hey, have fun at your rally while you praise him as your hero!

Ive looked several pages and havent found anyone taking him as anymore than someone slinging crap at Trump.

If there was someone (and its possible) it was one or two people at best.  This wasnt any serious movement here or by democrats

Wrong again but keep trying. Show me one post where I stated anything about him having a good chance to win  not to mention anything about him being a good candidate.

No, at worst he is lying and at best he is mistaken. I should know as the OP of the thread and the title was never Avenati 2020. Never.

The title was last edited on September 18, 2018. Before that date you can find someone saying in a post it was rumored he was running in 2020 and people responding to that, but it wasn't taken seriously by anyone here, including me.
