Michael Avenatti found ‘nothing funny’ about ‘total loser’ Pete Davidson’s ‘SNL’ impression of him

Disgraced, habitually sleazy lawyer Michael Avenatti thinks he’s got jokes …

On the latest edition of “Saturday Night Live,” the Trump-obsessed sketch comedy show took a roughly 15-second break to poke fun at Avenatti, a man known for his failed attempts to destroy President Donald Trump via highly dubious allegations.

Not to mention his ripping off of a paraplegic client …

In response, Avenatti jumped on Twitter and wrote a tongue-in-cheek tweet blasting “SNL” and the comedian who played him, Pete Davidson.

Look:

Notice anything peculiar about the tweet? It ostensibly reads just like something the president would tweet. So in response to being mocked by “SNL,” Avenatti jumped on Twitter and chose to mock the president. The thinking behind this idea is unclear.

More on that “ostensibly” a bit later …

As for the sketch, it centered on congressional Democrats’ first round of impeachment hearings earlier in the week. The show basically portrayed the hearings as a soap opera (versus a therapy session).

About four/fifths through the overly dramatized pseudo impeachment soap opera, Avenatti (played by Davidson) appeared out of nowhere with “bombshell” new evidence that the Democrats could use against the president.

“I’ve got a bombshell that’ll change everything,” the fake Avenatti announced. “The president had an affair!”

Watch how the other characters reacted by fast-forwarding to the 5:05 mark below:

The characters reacted with pure indifference because they already know about the president’s alleged real-life affair.

Davidson then tried again by dropping more “bombshell” news.

“The affair was with a porn star!” he exclaimed.

That too provoked very little reaction, as people already knew about Trump’s alleged former paramour, porn star Stormy Daniels.

The tenor of the whole joke was that Avenatti and everything he represents is old news, i.e. he’s so last week. Literally.

“That story went out like last season,” one of the other characters said in respond to the “bombshell” allegations.

After being rebuffed multiple times, an exasperated Avenatti finally gave up but pledged to eventually return.

“Fine, I’ll go. But you haven’t seen the last of me,” he said.

“Who am I playing again?” Davidson then asked the other characters.

When they responded by repeating Avenatti’s name, Davidson replied, “Michael Avocado!”

It was fitting, given as Avenatti is now as relevant as an avocado, as noted by social media users:

Though not surprisingly, he has been, continues to be and will likely forever be a very angry avocado. One with a history of tweeting just like the president.

Case in point: When a critic poked fun at Avenatti’s tweet by pointing out that he’s a shady, sleazy, corrupt man who faces multiple lawsuits from multiple sources — not to mention a potential prison sentence — Avenatti responded to him privately with profanity and Trump-esque insults.

Observe (*Language warning):

Now contrast the lawyer’s “SNL” tweet with what he wrote to the Twitter user above. While the tweet was ostensibly written in mockery of Trump, if you really think about it, it seems like the only person Avenatti was really mocking was himself.

In fact, the only thing that gives the tweet away is what he wrote about “Democratic hit jobs.” He’s reportedly a registered Democrat, so why would he talk trash about the Democrats? Exactly …

Other than for that discrepancy, the tweet sounded exactly like the type of thing that he would and has in fact tweeted many, many, many times:

Remember, folks, it’s hard out here for an angry, irrelevant avocado. Real hard!
