The lawyer representing adult film star Stormy Daniels hinted on Wednesday that he will run for president in 2020 — but there’s a catch.
The CNN-regular tweeted that he will run only if President Donald Trump seeks reelection. There’s absolutely zero indication that Trump will not seek reelection, especially given his countless accomplishments and what he could do with Republican majorities in Congress and at the Supreme Court.
Avenatti also said he will only run if he believes there aren’t any other viable candidates in the race who can beat Trump. The man who represents a woman who gets paid to be a miscreant went on to say the nation’s values are declining.
IF (big) he seeks re-election, I will run, but only if I think that there is no other candidate in the race that has a REAL chance at beating him. We can't relive 2016. I love this country, our values and our people too much to sit by while they are destroyed. #FightClub #Basta

Avenatti represents Daniels, who is suing Trump and his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to break her nondisclosure agreement. Daniels claims she had an affair in 2006 with Trump, which the president has denied.
Defending an adult film star has paved the way for Avenatti to become a big name with liberals, where he has been on CNN so much he should have his own show by now.
According to the Media Research Center, Avenatti made 147 television appearances between March and May on various left-wing cable news outlets. In that time frame, he was on CNN anchor Anderson Cooper’s show 22 times.
On top of that, Avenatti is currently in hot water for threatening several journalists in recent months for running stories against him that he did not like.
When he’s not partying in the Hampton’s with CNN hosts, he’s threatening journalists who report on his shady past. Avenatti is also a pathological liar who will say whatever he has to for more television time.
The liberal attorney is a left-winger who will do and say anything for attention, making him right at home on CNN and the perfect candidate for the Democratic Party.
Time will tell what happens next, but with Trump’s accomplishments and soaring approval rating, Avenatti knows he is walking into a buzz saw. This is likely just another publicity stunt.
