BREAKING: Bombastic barrister brings down the house!

THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2018

Maddow gets it right:
Rachel Maddow got it right on last night's eponymous program.

She played it straight when she interviewed Michael Avenatti, Stephanie Clifford's "Barrister Bluster." In the process, she elicited a comical claim from the famous bombast king—a claim which brought down the house.

More typically, Bluster appears on Lawrence's 10 PM cable news program. As a general matter, Lawrence stares, slack-jawed, at the porn star promoter like he wants to go rent a cheap room with this greatest of all hairless men.

Maddow took a different tack on her eponymous program. She actually challenged the recent actions of the man called Stormy's "third m*ney-m*ker." In the process, she elicited a classic blunderbuss response.

The self-loving lawyer had published some data concerning cash payments to Michael Cohen. Cohen's the man who heroically kept Clifford from hijacking our last election, Putin- and Flowers-style.

Earlier this week, Avenatti published some data concerning cash payments to Cohen. As it turned out, some of the lawyer's dollar figures were incomplete or inaccurate—and Maddow took note this fact:
MADDOW (5/10/18): ...All the big dollar amounts that you attribute to these big companies have been validated by these big companies today, or they said "Yes, we actually paid them more than that." It`s weird to have the big dollar numbers, to have those validated in this, when the smaller dollar numbers are being contested. It's weird to have a mix of true and false information.
Some of Avenatti's data had been incorrect. As it turned out, some of his claims apparently involved other people named Michael Cohen—and in some cases, it turned out that big companies had given substantially more money to Cohen than Avenatti had said.

"We actually paid him more than that," a few of the corporations have said. In response to this observation, the Bambino of Bombast said this:
AVENATTI (continuing directly): Well, it's not necessarily weird in a case, in a litigation case. I mean, sometimes things check out perfectly and sometimes they don't. I mean, that's just the nature of the beast.

Let me say this. We knew of the additional $800,000 that Novartis had paid. We didn't include that in the report for a reason. We wanted to see what happened. We wanted to see if they actually came clean about it.

And initially last night, they did not. And then they found religion today and came clean about the additional $800,000.
Say what? Did Bluster actually say that?

Did Barrister Bluster actually say he knew that Novartis paid $1.2 million, not the $400,000 he claimed? Did he actually say that he reported the inaccurate figure on purpose, hoping to see if Novartis would come clean?

Did Bluster really say that? Flabbergasted, perhaps gobsmacked, Maddow double-checked.

Did Bluster report inaccurate figures on purpose? Incomparably, Maddow asked—and Bluster said yes, he did!
MADDOW (continuing directly): So why did you hold that back? You wanted to see if they were going to lie about the amount?

AVENATTI: We wanted to see what was going to come out. We wanted to see what Michael Cohen was going to say. We wanted to see what Novartis was going to say. The same thing as it related to AT&T in the additional $600,000.
Maddow asked an excellent question; she got a classic response. And by the way:

If that improbable claim isn't Barrister Bluster, we don't know what is!

Final point—why did Maddow do this? We offer a thoughtful guess:

Maddow comes from a long line of nuns. On The Rachel Maddow Show, they simply don't go for the blue stuff, Governor Bentley's sex tape to the side.

Improbable claims by the score: Here's another improbable claim Bluster has asked us to swallow. In this passage, Clifford tells Anderson Cooper why she "did" Donald J. Trump:
COOPER (3/28/18): You had dinner [with Donald J. Trump]?

CLIFFORD: Yes.

COOPER: What happened next?

CLIFFORD: I asked him if I could use his restroom and he said, "Yes, you know, it's through those, through the bedroom, you'll see it." So I—I excused myself and I went to the restroom. You know, I was in there for a little bit and came out and he was sitting, you know, on the edge of the bed when I walked out, perched.

COOPER: And when you saw that, what went through your mind?

CLIFFORD: I realized exactly what I'd gotten myself into. And I was like, "Ugh, here we go." (LAUGH) And I just felt like maybe— (LAUGHS) It was sort of, I had it coming for making a bad decision for going to someone's room alone and I just heard the voice in my head, "Well, you put yourself in a bad situation and bad things happen, so you deserve this."
If you believe that improbable tale, we have a bridge to the 91st century we'd be willing to sell you, with ten percent going to Bluster.

Avenatti wants you to believe that story. According to major anthropologists, if you believe that improbable tale, you also believe that Avenatti misreported those dollar figures this week because Encyclopedia Brown.

Also this: If Clifford was so scared by the threat she says she received in 2011, why was she trying to sell her story again in 2016?

Cooper forgot to ask this rather obvious question, or maybe CBS decided to edit it out. The mainstream press corps still [HEART] those accusers! Keep accusation alive!

Plus, of course, the artist's sketch! Bluster even hopes that you'll believe that, and of course it could always be true.

  2. History is a set of nested resonances with each epoch being shorter than the one that preceded it. This event horizon is like a series of ghost horizons, and once you enter into history, you enter into the outer shell of the temporal field of the attractor or the concrescence.

  3. Somerby's ambivalence towards women is really showing today. Plus, you'd think he's never seen a trial lawyer before -- he pretends Avenatti is unusual in his bluster and not playing a role that ALL trial lawyers play on behalf of a client.

    Why does Somerby demean Avenatti when the man seems to be providing a public service, not just doing his job? He calls him Clifford's third moneymaker (the other two being her breasts), in a crude and unwarranted reference to her body parts again. He disparages Avenatti's baldness (as if it would be better to be hair-obsessed like Trump).

    There are people who know the truth and are hiding it and there are people trying to discover the truth but necessarily doing so in bits and pieces, more or less successfully. It would be surprising if they always got everything right.

    So what is Somerby's beef? Obviously, he dislikes women in general and Clifford specifically, because she has the nerve to complain about her treatment, file suit, and didn't just go away quietly with the money Trump's thugs forced her to take. Somerby doesn't understand why she would object to such treatment. (Where is his famous empathy now?)

    I think Somerby is the one issuing the howlers now, except his posts are dismaying and even sickening, not funny or clever or informative any more. That's the saddest part of this essay.

  4. Stormy Daniels has offered to return the $130,000 and her lawsuit isn't for money. It is to remove the NDA (Trump wants $1 million for every time she violates that agreement).

    She has a net worth of about $2 million and makes about $300,000 per year. She says she didn't sign the agreement for the money and there is no reason to doubt her word on that or about the man who threatened her. She has more integrity than those challenging her story, men who have repeatedly lied, used thugs in other contexts, and had mob ties.

  5. Somerby asks: "If Clifford was so scared by the threat she says she received in 2011, why was she trying to sell her story again in 2016?"

    Apparently the NDA and payment was negotiated by Stormy Daniels attorney, a guy named Davidson who seems to have worked for several of the women Trump had "affairs" with. She says Davidson talked her into it. It will be interesting to find out whether Davidson was working for Trump and Cohen instead of his clients. The odds of Daniels seeking a lawyer and finding Davidson by chance seem pretty slim.

  6. Barrister Bluster, more than anyone else, is responsible for the disintegration of the blue wave. Republicans have pulled even with Democrats in the midterm projections and they have the momentum.

  9. At least Bob isn't blaming this stuff on his imaginary staff anymore, even in jest. I think I may come from a long line of nuns, because I still think back on Bob during the Get Clinton era, when, even if rightously, sometimes hilariously angry; dispassionate fact weighing was the order of the day, and attributing motive was regaurded as pointless and wrong. GO AHEAD AND READ IT! As Bob used to write. I assume it's all still there in the archives. It has little to do with the self smitten eighth grader who wrote today's "Daily Howler."
    Beyond that, Somerby seems ludicriously devoted to normaizing the Trump era: the predictable if horrifying results of the election of an obvious crook are rolling in, Trump is considerably protected by major right wing news outlets,and the best Bob can do is scream "Micheal Avenatti, Gotcha!!"

    Really Bob, go fuck yourself.

  10. There is a certain male attitude, called transactional by psychologists, that considers all women prostitutes, all women for sale for different prices. That's why Trump confuses models, playmates and porn actresses with prostitutes, as evidenced by his attempts to pay them when they asked for no money. And if he assaults a woman he thinks he can pay her afterwards. He probably doesn't understand why that doesn't make everything OK. Most normal people understand that human beings are not bought and sold, for sex or labor or anything else.

    It isn't surprising to find trolls who reflect Trump's views of women. Trolls have been studied and found to have the same combination of personality flaws: narcissism, psychopathy and Machiavellianism. So you go guys!

    1. These men think wives are prostitutes too, who held out for more money. They think women exist to take their stuff. Women who gain weight or refuse sex after marriage are breaking the bargain, they think. That's why Trump would think it was OK to have sex with Stormy while Melania was pregnant. It's all transactional and all about their needs.

    2. It's extremely difficult to be a woman. A man depends largely on woman to bring meaning to his life.

    3. When Stormy Daniels sucked those hundreds and hundreds of stranger's dicks and let them blow gallons and gallons of their cum all over her hair and face, was that transactional or transformational?

      When she fucked Trump hoping to get a spot on his show, was that transactional on a transformational?

      When she took that cash, was that transformational? Or transactional?

      What a feminist hero!

    7. Stormy has sold herself for sex for many many many years. She has sucked many many many many dicks and had sex with countless strangers, selling herself for sex contrary to what noraml people understand.

      So by your logic, she also has same views about women as Trump . And byyourlogic she should share the same traits ofhave the same combination of narcissism, psychopathy and Machiavellianism.

    8. Don't worry, Republicans will be in control for a long long time as long as we continue to mistakenly believe financial influence of politicians is "free speech".

      If she wants financial success in the current US of A, she should. Are you intimating that rich people, like Ms. Daniels, aren't smarter and better than the rest of us?

    12. I'm just saying the years and years of her selling of her body for sex is transactional and it may indicate her current behavior is transactional as well.

    13. Not all women but certainly the prostitute in question. Her contract was transactional as well by definition but she has no honor so broke it. Prostitute liars are the new feminist heroes.

    14. Transactional? In a capitalist society? I practically never heard of such a thing every day of my life.
