When President Trump first announced that he would be holding a rally for Ted Cruz, Michael Avenatti was all tough talk.
I am excited to announce that I will be leading a large resistance rally in Texas at the exact same time of Trump’s (details tba). All groups are welcome to join. We must fight fire with fire and we must send a message that we will fight to make America America again. #Basta

That’s some tough talk there, Mr. #Basta.
Well, tonight’s the night of the Trump rally in Houston.
Rally-goers began queueing up over the weekend – with thousands camping out on the sidewalks.
And where is tough guy Avenatti?
Well, I can tell you where he won’t be: Houston.
From the Washington Examiner:
Michael Avenatti has backed off his pledge to hold a “resistance” rally in Texas on the same day President Trump holds one for Sen. Ted Cruz in Houston.
As the Trump campaign announced that more than 100,000 requests were made for tickets for the event Monday, Avenatti told Geoff Bennett of NBC News that a scheduling conflict prevented him from holding a counter-rally.
“It’s Beto’s show because it’s his race,” Avenatti was quoted as saying, referring to Cruz’s Democratic challenger, Rep. Beto O’Rourke.
Actually, it’s Trump’s show.
But no matter.
The idea that Michael Avenatti would demure to Beto by not hogging the spotlight is so far outside of the realm of reality, I doubt anybody believes it.
If there’s a spotlight, Avenatti is rushing headlong toward it while straightening his tie and checking for food between his teeth.
No. If I had to guess, I’d say for all his tough talk, Avenatti knows that his brand of bluster would be as welcome in Texas as a fart in a small room.
So instead of bravely fighting fire with fire in Houston, Texas, Avenatti is taking his shtick to New Hampshire.
Because nothing say “I’m fighting fire with fire” quite like being over eighteen hundred miles away from President Trump.
Mr. Tough Talk is only tough if he’s far enough away to ensure he won’t have to actually follow through on his tough talk.
Seriously, I hope this clown never goes away.
Like Hillary Clinton, showboating Michael Avenatti is yet another Democrat Party self-inflicted wound.
