Probably it’s only natural that in today’s reality TV political culture, a media-savvy porn star lawyer and cable news fixture could be a plausible presidential candidate.
And so it is that Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti on Saturday made a last-minute trip to the biggest battleground region of the biggest battleground state to address the Hillsborough Democrats’ King-Kennedy gala dinner Saturday night. Avenatti, 47, is exploring a run for Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, and Saturday’s Florida trip was followed Sunday with a New Hampshire appearance. Wednesday he will make his second Iowa appearance in recent weeks.
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result,” the California trial lawyer, said in an interview before the dinner in Tampa. “I think it’s going to take a very unique individual to beat (Trump) in the 2020 election. I don’t know yet if I’m that person or not but what I do know is that I think there’s going to a very small subset of individuals who can actually beat him. And even saying that I think it’s going to be very, very difficult.”
