Tucker Carlson, the popular host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” which airs every weekday evening on Fox News, is known for his ability to stop people who have opposing views in their tracks. So it was fitting that he debated controversial attorney Michael Avenatti live on his show the other day. The two had been arguing with each other off-air in recent weeks.
Avenatti is the attorney for Stormy Daniels, the born star born as Stephanie Clifford who is now famous for allegedly having an affair with now President Trump sometime during Shark Week while he was still a private citizen. She claims she was paid to not speak out about it before the 2016 presidential election.
Needless to say, sparks flew during the live debate. It was a sight to see.
Creepy Lawyer Strikes Out
Carlson really put Avenatti in his place about many topics, including the lawyer’s accusations that Russia was involved in meddling with the 2016 presidential election. Carlson said that when the lawyer accuses Russia in that way, it is so serious that Avenatti is claiming that Russia is engaging in an “act of war.” Carlson also said such allegations amount to “reckless rhetoric.”
Carlson called his debate opponent the “Creepy Porn Lawyer” and speculated about whether Avenatti plans to run for president. That’s partly because after Trump met with Russian President Vladimur Putin in a summit that which Trump opponents criticized, Avenatti spoke at a rally.
To Carlson’s comment about Avenatti spouting out “reckless rhetoric,” the lawyer ridiculously shot back by saying that Carlson engages in reckless political rhetoric, undoubtedly referring to Carlson’s asssertive, “tell it like it is” on-air style and demeanor.
The topic in the debate of course turned to Daniels but kept the “reckless” theme, with Carlson saying that Avenatti recklessly exploited Daniels.
“You’re exploiting her and you know that,” Carlson said.
Carlson was referring to Avenatti taking on Daniels as his client, which he knew would be a high-publicity case against Trump. Avenatti also accused Carlson of giving Trump “a pass” for having an affair with Daniels and then being untruthful about it.
Without missing a beat, Carlson called Avenatti “a moralizer for a guy who does what you do.”
Avenatti asked Carlson if the TV show host had ever viewed pornography or if he would want viewers of his show who look at pornagraphic material.
“[Only] humiliation porn. That’s why I watch you on CNN,” Carlson retorted.
More Debate Fireworks
At one point in the heated debate, Avenatti tried matching Carlson’s characteristic beat-downs with some of his own.
“Sir, this is absurd. Why don’t you call Trump the ‘creepy porn president’?” he posed. “I think you demean [Daniels] repeatedly and I think you’re a hypocrite.”
Carlson said Avenatti has been gaining much from Daniels’ prominent profile as a pornographic actress who is seeking legal action against Trump.
Carlson definitely knows how to put people like Avenatti in their place. Keep up the great work, Tucker!
