Stephanie “Stormy Daniels” Clifford might not have made the best decision when she chose to fool around with a thrice-married Donald Trump more than ten years ago, but her taste in men has greatly improved since she hired Michael Avenatti as her legal counsel against the bogus non-disclosure agreement Trump forced her to sign (but conveniently “forgot” to sign himself).
Time and time again, Avenatti has proved himself a vital asset to Clifford’s case, but also to the American people, helping to legally disseminate and uncover important information Trump tried to bury.
Today, he came out swinging for more than fame, this time defending Clifford’s character against an especially heinous verbal attack waged by Trump’s favorite loose cannon Rudy Giuliani.
Mr. Giuliani is a misogynist. His most recent comments regarding my client, who passed a lie detector test and who the American people believe, are disgusting and a disgrace. His client Mr. Trump didn’t seem to have any “moral” issues with her and others back in 2006 and beyond.

“Mr. Guliani is a misogynist,” Avenatti begins wasting no time taking down the rage-filled former Mayor of New York. “His most recent comments regarding my client, who passed a lie detector test and who the American people believe, are disgusting and a disgrace.”
Avenatti’s tweet comes in response to Giuliani questioning Clifford’s credibility, given her career choice. When asked about First Lady Melania Trump’s opinion on the matter, he doubled down and insisted that she did not believe the allegations, either.
“She believes her husband and she doesn’t think it’s true,” he said at a financial conference in Israel. “I respect women – beautiful women and women with value – but a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation I don’t respect. Tell me what damage she suffered. Someone who sells his or her body for money has no good name.”
In fact, Avenatti calls out that hypocrisy in the closing line of his tweet when he says “his client Mr. Trump didn’t seem to have any “moral” issues with her and others back in 2006 and beyond.”
The fact that Trump or anyone in his cabinet can, with a straight face, criticize Clifford for pursuing the same career as Trump’s third wife before becoming a kept woman is laughable, though completely expected. Thus far, Trump’s entire persona is based on lies which maintain the appearance he puts forth into the world as opposed to the reality he exudes on a daily basis.
Most importantly, there is no shame in sex work. Ms. Clifford truly hit the jackpot when she found Avenatti whose unwavering devotion to his client will undoubtedly reveal the truth in due time.
