Kyle Smith’s article at National Review Online, “Hero to Zero: The Rise and Fall of Michael Avenatti,” caught the eye of the celebrity lawyer who represented Stormy Daniels and Julie Swetnick, and not in a positive kind of way:
What a complete piece of garbage. You call yourself a journalist? You can’t even get basic facts right. Oh, that’s right, you don’t want to because they don’t fit your agenda. You are a hack with no ethics.

Avenatti sure didn’t like the article, but one aspect of his tweet of displeasure caught the attention of many:
Did he really, really, really just say “a hack with no ethics”? Really! ???

It’s just funny at this point the lack of self awareness is unprecedented

Change journalist to attorney and it sounds like Avenatti is describing himself.

It’s just TOO much.
