You have no idea how much I want this to be true.
After spending Monday night making the rounds on CNN and MSNBC, the loudmouth ambulance-chasing creepy porn lawyer clammed up Tuesday morning.
He locked his Twitter account and went radio silent.
Where'd he go? pic.twitter.com/80TVPxg6h4

Seems a strange thing to do after such a splashy overture.
By mid-afternoon, word got out that someone on 4Chan was claiming credit for Avenatti’s BIG SCOOP about Brett Kavanaugh.
And it was nothing but a punking.
Here’s a screen capture of the 4Chan posting (courtesy of The Right Scoop):
Now, Avenatti denies that he was punked by 4Chan.
But of course he does.
Given his slobbering eagerness to hop aboard the Kavanaugh Smear Train, his denials don’t hold much weight if you want my opinion.
Asked @MichaelAvenatti about the rumor his new client is a hoax: “It never happened. None of it. No truth to it. This is a fabrication of the right because they are worried and they should be."

Oh, I see.
A 4Chan user posted that claim because “the right” are “worried.”
You just don’t get it, do you?
We’ve been saying all along that this last-minute smear campaign was a desperate ploy to destroy a Trump SCOTUS nominee. You shoving your way into the mix all but confirms that for us.
We’re not worried. Instead, we feel vindicated by your presence.
Because nothing says, “This is a desperate clown show” quite like the entrance of the creepy porn lawyer.
But Avenatti is part-way right.
Some folks are worried.
But they’re not on the right.
As Peter Hansson from The Daily Caller wrote, Democrats are none too happy about Avenatti’s involvement in their carefully laid-out plans to destroy Kavanaugh.
Senate Democrats have been hesitant to promote Avenatti’s claims and liberal pundits have expressed alarm that if Avenatti is bluffing, he could harm their efforts to stop Kavanaugh.
“We don’t know who Michael Avenatti’s clients actually are. But if he’s overhyped the information he has for attention, he will have done real damage to the anti-Kavanaugh efforts — and will deserve to be exiled from cable TV and public life,” wrote Vox blogger Zack Beauchamp.
Katherine Krueger, managing editor of liberal website Splinter, said Avenatti “could easily risk hurting the movement to keep Kanavaugh off of the Supreme Court.”
Avenatti called concerns about his involvement “complete nonsense and ridiculous” in an email to The Daily Caller News Foundation on Tuesday.
“They have no idea what they are talking about,” Avenatti added of his liberal critics.
Senate Democrats have kept their distance from Avenatti’s unproven claims about Kavanaugh.
“Mr. Avenatti has a tendency to sensationalize and make his various crusades more about himself than about getting at the truth,” a senior Senate Democratic aide told The Daily Beast. “This moment calls for the exact opposite.”
“You know I never have no comment, but I have no comment about Michael Avenatti,” Hawaii Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz told Politico.
And Democrats have reason to distance themselves from this attention whore, don’t they?
They’ve been carefully crafting this smear campaign since July. They don’t want a narcissist with delusions of celebrity who isn’t a team player blowing up their plans.
For the Senate Democrats, Avenatti and his mystery accuser are about as welcome as an explosive fart in an elevator.
In fact, I’m guessing the Democrats are even more eager for the 4Chan claim to be true than I am.
