Slimy used condom-chaser: Is there a slimier used condom-chaser out there today than lawyer Michael Avenatti?
We ask our thoughtful question after subjecting ourselves to Josh Marshall's interview with Avenatti from last Friday. After personally reading an ad for "Grady's Cold Brew dot com, that's Grady's Cold Brew dot come, with promo code TPM," the Internet mogul, who's actually smart, asked this spot-on question:
MARSHALL (3/16/18): Let's launch right into it. First question, sort of a "devil's advocate" question:Ignore Marshall's apology! There you see the obvious question:
Why does the public need to know about Stormy Daniels' story at all? My understanding from that 2011 interview is that it's a consensual relationship. So why is this a public story? Why does it matter?
Why should the public be distracted by all this bullshit from Avenatti's perhaps disordered but now high-profile celebrity client? Why should the public have its attention dragged away by talk about a consensual relationship between two slimy, disordered people?
Marshall can never completely hide the fact that he has a good mind. He had asked the obvious question. The used condom-chaser deflected:
AVENATTI (continuing directly): Well, I think it's important that the American people always be told the truth, and always have as much information at its disposal as possible...Nice attempt, Slimebucket!
Marshall's question suggested the obvious—it actually isn't important "that the American people always be told the truth," for instance about irrelevant matters. In response, the mother of all modern slimebuckets had sought a way to deflect.
From there, he refused to answer all subsequent questions.
Having asked the obvious opening question, Marshall refused to follow up. Did we mention the fact that Grady's Cold Brew, through its "cold brew kit," costs less than a dollar a cup?
