Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer At VMAs: ‘Serious’ On Possible Presidential Bid

Eric Scheiner | August 21, 2018

Maybe it’s not so strange that MTV’s Video Music Awards presented an opportunity to keep us abreast of the political ambitions of the lawyer representing adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Monday nights VMA's featured plenty of Trump bashing on stage, so why not showcase a Trump-basher off stage as well.

Michael Avenatti told Variety he was excited to be invited to the event and that he’s seriously considering a bid for the Oval Office in 2020.


"I am, I'm serious about it. I'm seriously looking at it," Avenatti said. 

"I'm traveling around talking to people in the country, and I've been really surprised at how much enthusiasm there is out there for the potential.”

“It’s been a whirlwind six months. I think I have a real shot, if I decide to do it. It’s a big decision though,” Avenatti added.

Avenatti has certainly been popping up in a number of places.  On Saturday, Avenatti spoke at the  Democrats' Kennedy/King Dinner in Florida. The next day he appeared at the 'Hillsborough County Democrat's Summer Picnic' in New Hampshire.

“I can stand here today and tell you that I am not just some TV lawyer,” the lawyer for adult film ‘actress’ Stormy Daniels told the Granite State crowd. 

“I have represented people who have found themselves on the wrong side of power.”
