Whatever became of that thug: Now he belongs to the ages.
According to the Washington Post, Michael Avenatti is parlaying his ownership of Lawrence O'Donnell into a run for the White House.
He'll be speaking in Iowa next month. Meanwhile, whatever became of that thug?
Back in March, Stephanie Clifford told the world that she'd been threatened by a thug in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011. Some people even believed this.
In mid-April, Avenatti released a forensic artist's sketch of the allegedly frightening alleged thug. Remember how great that was? Avenatti seemed to suggest that an apprehension was right around the corner. Even before the sketch was released, the future president said his team had "made progress" in the search for the thug.
"We may not need to release the sketch," the brash, brassy barrister blustered. He said he had "some pretty good ideas" about the identity of the recently remembered thug.
That was then, and this is now. In fact, it's late July! For whatever reason, no one has heard a word about the extremely frightening putative thug from that great day in April right on up to this.
Avenatti has been forced to deal with his three thousand personal business scams. But he has retained the admiration of Lawrence, who's sometimes described as "Michael's poodle," and all the evidence seems to suggest that he'll soon belong to the ages.
As we've been telling you, our nation's political culture is an utterly rock-bottom joke. Remember when he was pimping that sketch? For the course of maybe a week, remember how thrilling that was?
