Creepy Porn Lawyer and the media’s resident heartthrob Michael Avenatti was sentenced to two and a half years in prison yesterday.
And sure, there’s a little Schadenfreude about a big-mouth asshole who reveled in the fantasy of Donald Trump and his children getting frog-marched off to jail getting frog-marched off to jail.
But the mother lode of Schadenfreude comes from the American corporate news media’s embrace of this charlatan.
Remember how they gushed?
Remember how the shrill, vicious cackling hens of the View turned into giggling fan-girls over their heartthrob Avenatti?
The media was so desperate for a hero to ride in and fulfill their own fantasies involving handcuffs, the glommed on to a guy who ended up in handcuffs.
Back in May of 2018, I wrote a column titled “Suicide by Avenatti” in which I warned the media about hitching their wagon to their ResistanceLOL heartthrob. And that was before they started fantasizing about this loser running for President.
A year later when SDNY charged Avenatti, in my column “The Avenatti Saga is an indictment of the media,” I said “Anybody with two brain cells to rub together knew the Avenatti Saga would end with this Shyster in deep legal trouble.”
But the media missed it because what few brain cells they had left were fried from Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The elevation of this professional con man and bull-shitter into celebrity heartthrob was one of the biggest self-inflicted wounds the media suffered during the Trump years. And they suffered a lot of self-inflicted wounds. But none of them was as Schadenfreuderrific as hitching their wagon to this guy.
And believe me, they know exactly how foolish they look.
NBC New York tweeted a story about Avenatti’s sentencing hearing and in the text of the tweet, they couldn’t even bring themselves to say his name. Instead, NBC New York referred to him only as “A California lawyer.”
Not being able to say his name is quite a switch from this:
Three years later and that clip still makes me cringe.
But the media is doing what they always do when they make complete prats of themselves. They’re just pretending they didn’t spend a year treating this guy like a celebrity heartthrob.
And it wasn’t just the news media that was throwing their panties at this idiot.
Hollywood celebrities, politicians, everyone signed on to the Michael Avenatti fan club.
When these dopes started pushing for their heartthrob to become President Heartthrob, Lincoln Project dick-in-residence Rick Wilson actually told Time Magazine, “You’ve got to be brave to go up against Trump. Avenatti’s got balls. Giant, clanking, titanium balls.”
Yeah, those will no doubt come in handy when some gigantic inmate named Tiny takes Avenatti as his wife.
And Rick Wilson laughs at how stupid and gullible Trump voters are.
By the way, will the court be auctioning off Avenatti's donor email list? Because goddamn that thing is a straight up gold mine of gullibility— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) July 8, 2021
Now, the Avenatti saga isn’t even over yet. In addition to yesterday’s sentencing in New York, Avenatti still faces additional Federal charges in California.
Never forget just how stupid and gullible these people are.
Never forget that the people who are calling January 6 an “Insurrection” and election fraud “The Big Lie” fell for all over themselves believing every word that came out of this grifter’s mouth.
