Celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti, who hates to be called a celebrity attorney, appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday night, and it was clear that Carlson is not a fan. In fact, in the chyron at the bottom of the screen, Avenatti was referred to as either “Creepy Porn Lawyer” or just CPL for short.

Avenatti made it clear that one of the conditions of his appearance was that Carlson not refer to him as a creepy porn lawyer, which Carlson did not do … verbally. For the most part.

Oh, it’s real.

“CPL finally agrees to interview with Tucker” is pretty good, but we also like “Stormy’s lawyer as creepy porn president?”

Avenatti was not pleased to find out what had gone on on screen:

And yes, he’s running.

Update:

Uh oh … Oliver Darcy, who reports for CNN but seems to do nothing but watch FOX, seems displeased too, even though his network is guilty of the same thing.
