Michael Avenatti is mulling a run for president again after declaring he would not seek nomination

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/08/03/michael-avenatti-is-mulling-a-2020-run-for-president-again.html

As he’s watched the almost two dozen candidates square off in the primary debates, Avenatti says he continues to believe Democrats don’t have the fighter that can take on Trump come the general election and suggested he could be the candidate to beat him.

...

“I don’t think I need to make a final decision for a number of months. I have the name ID and everyone knows I’m one of the few effective fighters that the Dems have,” he said.

————-

Now I know what the undecideds are holding out for!

The Iowa caucuses are just 3 months later after all, and being in custody kind of gets in the way of barnstorming...

I think from private messages with many other undecided primary voters - most of us are at the very end.

We don't vote in NJ until June 2 next year. I'm making no commitments until after Super Tuesday.

If it's Avenatti - Good lord!

"I have the name ID and everyone knows I’m one of the few effective fighters that the Dems have." Change Dems to Republicans and those words could have come right out of Fat Nixon's mouth; those two idiots must be getting their drugs from the same dealer. A debate between those two delusional narcissists would be about as enlightening as a playground fight between third-graders.

But it’s okay. There is no Constitutional bar to having the president in jail.

He will run on being a man of convictions - possibly 35 or more.

Could all be manufactured, for sure. But did make me think, why weren't they all over Trump's scams over the years. If what he says is true, all those audits "every year.". If that is bullshit, then why didn't they? If he got the largest refund of anyone else in US?
