Fox News Labels Avenatti A ‘Creepy Porn Lawyer’ After Host Promised Not To Use ‘Insults’ During Interview





Fox News labeled Stormy Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, a “creepy porn lawyer” while he was interviewed by host Tucker Carlson on Thursday night, with one on-screen graphics reading, “Does America want creepy porn lawyer as pres?”

“We could sit here and hurl insults at each other,” Carlson began the segment, before saying he wanted to take Avenatti “seriously.”

At that exact moment, the chyron below them changed to read “CREEPY PORN LAWYER TOYING WITH 2020 RUN.”

Some version of that insult remained on screen for the rest of their nearly 13-minute interview.



Avenatti slammed Carlson over the on-screen graphics minutes after finishing his appearance on the show.

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

Carlson, an opinion host on the network, repeatedly shouted over his guest while at the same time saying he had “no interest in squabbling or name-calling.”

“Why is it that you don’t call Donald Trump the ‘creepy porn president?’” Avenatti asked Carlson at one point. “He’s the one that had sex, with a four-month-old son at home, with my client, without a condom. But you don’t want to acknowledge that!”


The Daily Beast adds:

Carlson did acknowledge the extra-marital affair, but defended it as “consensual” and would not admit that Trump had lied to the American people about it. As Carlson accused Avenatti of “exploiting” Daniels, Avenatti shot back that he was “hypocrite” for shaming his association with a porn star while giving Trump a pass for the same thing.

It wasn’t until the final moments of the gross display that the words on the screen migrated into Carlson’s mouth. “Creepy porn lawyer, great to see you,” the host said, getting the last word and cutting to commercial.
