Speaking with the Daily Beast, the attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels mocked the disorganized manner in which the Trump White House — and by extension President Donald Trump’s lawyers — have responded to his almost daily bombshells.
The piece that notes that Trump-backing PACs have remained silent over the president’s legal difficulties with regard to Daniels’ accusation of receiving hush money from Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, with a GOP insider stating, “No one seems to understand why the RNC, America Rising and other GOP groups aren’t doing even basic political blocking and tackling with Avenatti. He’s essentially gotten a free pass from them.”
Asked to comment, the media-friendly Avenatti marveled at the lack of coordination between Trump aides and his most vociferous backers to push back.
“Strategy? They have a strategy? I thought their approach was centered on tic tac toe,” the lawyer told The Beast.
According to the lawyer, he claims to have heard “from multiple people” that “the White House is prohibiting people close to the president from going on camera with me on any show.”
He added that it is his understanding that cable TV bookers had the “plug pulled” on pre-booked appearances by Trump advisors when they heard the attorney might appear for a counterpoint.
Avenatti went on to note that he has offered multiple times to appear on Fox News host Sean Hannity’s show — but so far, no invitation.
