From Media Superstar to Prison Inmate in 4 Years

From Media Superstar to Prison Inmate in Four Years

How the mighty Michael Avenatti has fallen. In just four years’ time, the loudmouth lawyer went from media superstar to prison inmate.

Not exactly how he thought life would go when he first came on the scene, is it?

The media, eager to turn anyone anti-Trumper into a household name, grabbed onto this showboating mid-wit with near-orgasmic gusto.

And now the guy our media betters floated as a possible 2020 Democrat Presidential candidate won’t be spending four years in the White House but fourteen years in the Big House.

I know. It’s wrong to mock someone who is about to spend the next fourteen years in prison.

But when you think about it, Avenatti brought this on himself.

He knew he was a shyster who defrauded his clients when he first agreed to step into the role of ResistanceLOL Heartthrob. But the lure of media fawning and ResistanceLOL fangirling was too hard to … well … resist.

So here we are.

Yesterday, a federal judge sentenced Avenatti to fourteen years for defrauding his clients and obstructing the IRS from collecting payroll taxes from his coffee company.

In addition to the prison sentence, Avenatti also has to cough up $7 million in restitution.

This 14-year sentence is in addition to the five-year sentence Avenatti already received in New York for extorting Nike and stealing from the very client who made him a media superstar in the first place, porn star Stormy Daniels.

A fitting end for the guy who loved to pester Donald Trump Junior on Twitter by calling him “Biff” and telling him he’s heading to prison.

On October 11, 2018, Avenatti tweeted: “Donald Trump Jr. will be indicted before his birthday on 12-31-18. If you doubt my prediction, please check my record over the last 7 months. #Winning”

Here we are nearly four years later, and Donald Trump Jr. still hasn’t been indicted and the only guy going to prison is Michael Avenatti. #Winning

But it isn’t Michael Avenatti who made this journey so freaking entertaining.

It was the dopes in the media that turned this into such rollicking fun.

Nobody did more to destroy the credibility of the American corporate news media than Michael Avenatti.

Back in May 2018, I called the media’s Avenatti love-fest “Suicide by Avenatti.”

Anybody with half a brain knew back then that this was going to end badly.

And from the way things turned out, we now know that “badly” was a bit of an understatement.

    One glimpse of this guy was enough to convince us lowly peons that he was a first-class shyster. I wonder if Ana Navarro still feels the presence of the Holy Spirit when she’s near Avenatti? CNN and The View totally beclowned themselves over this grifter.

    Not wishing ill on prison guards who have a tough enough job as it is, but I wish all of those cuckoo’s nest media “cheerleaders” were joining him.

    With good behavior, Avenatti could possibly run for President in 2036. Actually, he could run for cell block president right now…

    Did he get the recently vacated Blagojevich Suite at Club Fed?

    Another wheres-the-camera pettifogger heading to jail, I’m shocked, shocked

    Seems to me the court made allowances for Avenatti being morally handicapped….

    Should have given him 20 years with a renewal option.

    I am not sure how much of the hype for this obvious con man was the media latching on to anyone who would provide anti-Trump sound bites, and how much was the media just lacking a working BS detector. As Rvahokie said, it was easily apparent from the first moment Avenati showed up that he was a shyster. How so many people failed to see through his act puzzles me.
