Michael Avenatti Calls Tucker Carlson a ‘Liar, Just Like Trump‘ After Interview

Stormy Daniels‘ lawyer Michael Avenatti capped off an explosive interview with Tucker Carlson by taking to Twitter to call the Fox News host “a liar, just like Trump.”

Avenatti’s tweet was in response to Fox News chyrons reading “creepy porn lawyer” that aired during the live broadcast on Thursday’s show.

Avenatti was not amused.

“Yes. After he told me that he was not going to engage in ‘name calling.'” he wrote. “This is why so many people correctly conclude that @TuckerCarlson is a liar, just like Trump.”

Then, responding to Chris Geidner posting even more creepy porn lawyer chyrons on Twitter, Avenatti replied, “Disgraceful. Garbage host. Garbage network.”

During the interview, Carlson said he’d actually pledged not to use the term, saying, “In the past he’s also demanded that we stop referring to him by a certain unflattering nickname.”

Carlson continued on, “We haven’t agreed to that demand, but tonight as a gesture of goodwill we will not use that nickname, because we are always grateful when guests are brave enough to show up in person, including in this case.”

Obviously, while Carlson did not say the “unflattering nickname,” he certainly had his team flash it on the screen again and again to taunt Avenatti.
