Stormy Daniels’ lawyer challenges Rudy Giuliani to a throwdown. Boy, did he hit a nerve.

The attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels challenged Rudy Giuliani to a face-to-face “discussion” on live television after calling him out in a series of tweets.

Michael Avenatti apparently did not appreciate comments made about him by President Trump’s lawyer in an interview with Bloomberg on Tuesday, and tweeted a message to the former New York City mayor on Wednesday.

Earlier, Avenatti had issued a challenge to Giuliani to meet on air to discuss the case in which he is representing the adult film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

The lawsuit is centered on a $130,000 payment made to Clifford by the president’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, before the 2016 presidential election in order to keep her silent about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump a decade earlier.

Giuliani’s comments to Bloomberg referred to Avenatti’s claim to have “discovered” that Cohen received hundreds of thousands of dollars after the 2016 election “from a company controlled by a Russian Oligarc [sic] with close ties to Mr. Putin.”

“I have no idea how he would know that. I have no reason to believe that anything he says is true,” Giuliani said. “I consider him now sort of a guy who books for ‘Saturday Night Live.’ The guy is a pretty unsuccessful lawyer — can’t remember a case he’s ever had that meant anything — and I think he’s desperate for money.”

Giuliani, who joined Trump’s legal team as an adviser last month, raised eyebrows last week when he claimed that Cohen had paid Daniels and was later reimbursed by the president.
