CNN’s Stelter Wonders If What He Did With Avenatti ‘Was That Stupid’ And The Answer Is Yes
CNN’s head media correspondent Brian Stelter who worshipped at the feet of Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenattie is now wondering if considering him a presidential candidate was “stupid.”
“Avenatti has just been convicted on three accounts for alleged extortion and other crimes,” Stelter said Sunday on CNN. “I’ve been getting some grief from Sean Hannity this weekend, speaking of Fox, from Hannity for one suggesting that Avenatti could be a serious candidate for president.
“Give me a media critique,” Stelter asked Daily Beast reporter Lachlan Markay. “Was that stupid on my part?”
Markay actually blamed Stelter’s behavior on President Trump saying that the president can “Trumpify” his opposition. He was claiming that Trump’s attacks are what caused everyone to want to support Avenatti.
Avenatti was found guilty Friday for attempting to extort Nike out of millions of dollars, he still has open criminal charges in California, and is being sued by Stormy Daniels.
Another dummy at CNN, head legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin reluctantly admitted the lawyer had “snookered him into taking him seriously.”
“It was like walking with a major, major celebrity,” Toobin said about taking Avenatti to lunch.
“And at the peak of this, he even announced he was considering running for president, and he went to Iowa, he went to New Hampshire,” he added. “And to call it hubris … doesn’t do it justice. I mean, the craziness of this.”
CNN was so desperate to take down President Trump that they had him on the air 74 times in a 10 week period. The network practically sold it’s sold Avenatti, they were in love with the guy and wanted to assist and help him in any way to take down President Trump. However, their own desperation betrayed them by a sleazy lawyer.
Stelter, Toobin, and the entire CNN network should be ashamed of themselves for the trash they put on their network. Yes, Stelter, you are “that stupid” and so is your network.
