CNN’s S.E. Cupp Smokes Michael Avenatti on Twitter: ‘No One is Threatened By You’

Lawyer Michael Avenatti obviously believes in the strategy of using Twitter “beefs” to boost his profile, and seems to focus a lot on fighting with women. Recently he tried to go to war with Megyn Kelly, and today he attempted to take down CNN’s S.E. Cupp. But unless losing all the time is the point of the beefs, that strategy doesn’t seem to be working out for him.

When he went after Megyn Kelly, it ended poorly. Perhaps he forgot she was a fiercely successful attorney before becoming a powerful media figure. In the case of S.E. Cupp, the results were about the same, with Avenatti humiliated rather quickly.

Avenatti was set off by Cupp’s op-ed at the New York Daily News this week where, along with other advice for Democrats, she suggested the party stop “being stupid” and “recognize Michael Avenatti for what he is: a carnival barker who should be disavowed by every Democrat running for election anywhere.” He barked his dudgeon on Twitter Sunday morning.

S.E. Cupp’s reply was perfectly designed to set him off, and further illustrate her point.

That’s going to leave a mark. But it wasn’t just Cupp straightening him out.

He just can’t find a home, it seems.
