Corey Lewandowski on Watters’ World: ‘I Want Avenatti to Run for Office’

On Saturday, Watters’ World host Jesse Watters and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski dished on Stormy Daniels‘ lawyer Michael Avenatti and his possible 2020 presidential run.

Watters started by playing a highlight clip of Fox News’  Tucker Carlson‘s interview with Avenatti on Thursday.

“You are wearing a $1,000 suit,” Carlson tells Avenatti in the clip. “Why is it that her life has stalled and your life — you are planning a new career as a politician, and like so many lawyers you are taking advantage of her. And you pose as a feminist hero because you are shameless and the other channels let you get away with it. But you are an exploiter of a woman and you should be ashamed of that.”

Then after veering into Maxine Waters talk for a moment, they returned to the interview.

“Real quick, Avenatti, Tucker…is Avenatti going to be able to come back from this?” Watters asked the former Trump campaign head.

“I want Avenatti to run for office, I want him to run for president” Lewandowski replied.  “He’s a failed attorney — His law firm has been sued many, many times and he’s owed millions of dollars. I think Tucker’s takedown of Avenatti is exactly what the American people want to see.”
