Avenatti just issued a direct challenge to Trump and leveled him with three personal insults

The war of words between President Donald Trump and attorney Michael Avenatti is quickly heating up. Avenatti rose to national political prominence by representing adult film star Stormy Daniels against Trump and surged once again into the headlines earlier today when he came forward with allegations from a woman who claims Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was involved in gang raping girls when he was younger.

In response, Trump attacked Avenatti by name, attempted to discredit him and called him a “total low-life.”

Both Trump and Avenatti are bare-knuckle media brawlers so it was little surprise that their interactions today quickly devolved into an all-out feud.  After the president’s tweet, Avenatti responded by defending his client and counterattacking Trump in a string of mocking tweets.

Now, Avenatti’s Twitter onslaught has culminated in a brutal tweet in which he called the president a “moron.”

Regardless of how one feels about the attorney — who is already being floated as a possible 2020 presidential candidate — it’s refreshing to finally see a Democrat fighting fire with fire. Trump regularly uses blunt and crude language to demean and browbeat his opponents. It’s past time we hit back hard. A huge swath of the country thinks Trump is a moron, now they have someone to voice their feelings.

After referring to the president as a “moron” — which is just one of the many insulting things Trump’s own administration has reportedly called him in the past — Avenatti went on to point out that Trump knows nothing about himself or his client, and that he’s trying to divert attention away from the gang rape accusation.

Avenatti also challenged Trump to a debate over Kavanaugh and his accusers as well as his and Trump’s backgrounds, but added that he doesn’t expect Trump to accept the offer because he is a “coward” and “weak.” In this regard, Avenatti is correct. He would absolutely devour Trump and his laughably scattered brain in a one-on-one debate.

He followed up with one last tweet to gloat:
