Tucker Carlson took a victory lap Wednesday night regarding his pummeling of attorney Michael Avenatti eight months ago when he confronted the huckster on his program about taking advantage of Stormy Daniels.

The September 2018 showdown came at a time when lapdog liberal media personalities were inexplicably praising Avenatti and calling him the “savior of the Republic” and looking to him as an unbeatable Democrat candidate for president simply because of his baseless attacks on President Trump, while they completely overlooked the obvious corruption dripping off the guy.

If you need a reminder of how the media embraced Avenatti, look no further than this tweeted video by Elizabeth Harrington …


Already eyebrow-deep in serious legal doo-doo with several dozen criminal counts filed against him in federal courts, Avenatti was charged on Wednesday with forging Daniels’ signature and diverting $300,000 from her book deal to pay for his own personal and business expenses. The lawyer denied the charges … what a surprise.

He already faces potential prison sentences exceeding 400 years if found guilty of the many charges against him, which include attempting to extort Nike and stealing money from other clients.

Carlson had Avenatti on FNC’s Tucker Carlson Tonight last year for a face-to-face showdown and lambasted the “creepy porn lawyer” for his shameless use of Daniels for his own personal gain. He and Fox reporter Melissa Francis had a look back at parts of that confrontation and put it into the perspective of what has since come to light about Avenatti. Watch the two-part video below …

There are NO viable excuses for how MSNBC, CNN, and the rest of the media pushed Avenatti onto the public as a reputable individual. His name was promoted everywhere on a daily basis as the leftist media did their best to create a liberal superhero. Where are they now? Are they reporting on how wrong they were?

“All the while, Stormy Daniels worked in strip clubs to pay her bills. Creepy porn lawyer lived with purity on misfortune. Is anybody outside of cable news surprised by this?” Carlson said last night. “… The whole prime time line up on a bunch of other channels must have their jaws open, they wanted him to be president.”

“Yeah, they were very excited about him,” said Francis before she summarized some of the charges Avenatti faces and how he continues to try to deny them all.

“All told, he could go to jail for 404 years, and in my book, it’s really not enough for everything that he did,” she said. “He also had bank fraud, wire fraud, filed for bankruptcy … again, alleged. “… two themes that our viewers love here. Number one is hypocrisy. And that is what you really put out there when you have the interview with him, where he is standing there, holier-than-thou, filled with sanctimony. This person is immoral.”

“According to these officials, and these law enforcement officers, he is one of the biggest criminals and predators out there. The other thing is the irony. Because you’ve got to think that he was doing this for a long time, and there are many clients he’s accused of defrauding. He spent the money on Ferraris, a private plane, they say. He was living the lifestyle, and defrauding people who are being paid for legitimate things. But he didn’t get caught until he went all over television. Until he was drunk on his own sayings.”

“I actually feel sorry for him at this stage,” Carlson said. “There is clearly something wrong with him. I don’t want to speculate, but there’s clearly something wrong — there has always been something wrong with the guy and any person who spent two minutes with him, we know that, and yet somehow they didn’t know that? … these purveyors of facts. … because they were doing the work that they wanted done.

“He didn’t go after Brett Kavanaugh, he had Stormy Daniels to go after the President. He was doing the bidding of what the other networks wanted, so they look past it there to be doing the work of the Democratic Party”.

“Had he not gotten drunk on his own fame, he might have gotten away with it,” said Francis.
