And, just think, less than a year ago Michael Avenatti was the toast of CNN and was teasing a presidential run to take on President Donald Trump.
IF (big) he seeks re-election, I will run, but only if I think that there is no other candidate in the race that has a REAL chance at beating him. We can't relive 2016. I love this country, our values and our people too much to sit by while they are destroyed. #FightClub #Basta
