Tucker Carlson Hits ‘Creepy Porn Lawyer’ Avenatti After He Rejected an Invite To Come On His Show

On Friday night, Tucker Carlson continued to blast “creepy porn lawyer” Michael Avenatti.

Carlson began by citing a study that concluded that Stormy Daniels‘ attorney has appeared on CNN and MSNBC a whopping 108 times since March, which estimates roughly $175 million in free media appearances.

“It’s a lot of CNN and MSNBC and we thought we would add a little diversity to his media diet,” Carlson told his viewers. “So we invited the creepy porn lawyer onto this show. We called his office- or what he said was his office. It may have been a booth at a Wendy’s in Passaic, maybe a White Castle- you never know. In any case, he turned us down flat. Too bad. Would have been fun. Maybe when Jeff Zucker tires of him over at CNN, he will reconsider our offer. That won’t be long. We’d enjoy it.”

The Fox News host then brought on Democratic strategist Julian Epstein, who said Avenatti has used television “much more effectively” that most lawyers, but pushed back at Carlson’s assertion that Avenatti has become the “standard-bearer for Democrats.”

“To be honest, Tucker, I think your indictment is of the industry you’re a participant in, which is the cable television industry,” Epstein said to Carlson. I think it is the obsession of the cable television industry. I think Bob Mueller and the Democrats, for there part, aren’t necessarily obsessed about this.”

Carlson again expressed his interest in having Avenatti on his show, but he’s “too busy” on other channels “whose viewers are responding.”

“That’s why Jeff Zucker has put him on every day for two months!” Carlson exclaimed. “So he really is one of the most famous Democrats in America. He’s a partisan Democrat. He’s worked on Democratic campaigns, dozens of them.”
