Attorney Michael Avenatti is on a roll with his ripostes to Donald Trump Jr.’s tweets.
The repository of faulty genes that is the eldest of presidential sons was deep into his poorly performed role as an internet troll when he reached back into the long-forgotten past to unearth a stale brick to lob at the crusading lawyer who helped bring Trump’s crooked attorney Michael Cohen to justice in the Stormy Daniels case and threatens to do the same to the rest of the Trump Organization.
Little Donnie Junior made his lame attempt at humor while retweeting a news story about the potential early dismissal from prison on “good behavior” of former Congressman Anthony Weiner. Weiner, as you may remember, was sentenced to 21 months in prison for sexting an underage girl. (Apparently, you have to actually meet the girl in person and physically assault her to be eligible for a Supreme Court nomination, rather than prison.)
Who else is excited about Avanetti/Weiner 2020?!?

Michael Avenatti did not find Trump Jr.’s tweet humorous in the least, but he did find the irony in the idea that someone currently under multiple federal and state criminal investigations would be trying to ridicule an inmate, given the tax evasion, misuse of charitable funds, and those meetings with the Russians that Junior is being implicated in.
Bif: If I were you, the last thing I would be doing is referencing other people getting out of federal prison. Because after you are indicted, you will likely be passing them on your way in. BTW, they don’t have silver spoons or gold toilets in the joint. Buckle up Buttercup. https://t.co/jnDq4weHZh

Avenatti’s vision of Trump Jr.’s future in the penitentiary is a satisfying way to imagine the entire Trump family finally being held accountable for their misdeeds. Hopefully, Mr. Avenatti will be able to retweet this in 20 years or so when rumors of Donnie Jr.’s incipient release begin to circulate. How many people really believe, however, that any Trump could ever be released because of “good behavior”? Ain’t gonna happen.
Let’s see if Junior has enough brainpower to at least try to come back with a decent retort to Avenatti, who has outclassed and outsmarted him every step of the way so far. Perhaps he’ll accept that MMA fight to benefit charity that Avenatti has challenged him to.
