Michael Avenatti went on CNN with Wolf Blitzer today, and spoke more harsh words in response to Rudy Giuliani's disgusting statements implying that Stormy Daniels is a prostitute and that she cannot be believed.
Last night, Avenatti called Giuliani a pig. Today, he apologized—and not to Giuliani.
"I do want to go back on what I said, though," Avenatti said. "I called him a pig last night and this morning and earlier today. An apology, actually, Wolf, is in order. But not to Mr. Giuliani, but rather to the pig. I owe an apology to the pig for associating Mr. Giuliani with a pig. This guy's a disgrace. It's disgusting. It has no place in American society or anywhere else for that matter."
Avenatti said that he and Daniels have been fielding personal attacks from Giuliani because the president's legal team is desperate.
"I don't get it," he said. "And I don't understand why this president continues to employ somebody of this nature. This guy's a disaster."
Why does Trump stand by Giuliani and his outrageous comments? Avenatti said it's all part of a scheme to distract the public.
"They don't want to answer the tough questions, they can't fight us on the facts and the evidence, so they want to distract by demeaning us, calling us names, etc.," he said. "It's not going to work."
