Ladies and gentlemen, it is with a heavy heart that we bring you some terrible news: Michael Avenatti will not be running for president.

The same man who represented adult film actress Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against President Trump posted on Twitter, “After consultation with my family and at their request, I have decided not to seek the presidency of the united states in 2020.”

You’re telling me that the same guy who shrugged off his legal problems by telling this publication “F–k the haters!” isn’t cut out for the 2020 Democratic nomination? Color me shocked.

Surely everybody saw from the beginning that Avenatti was no hero, right? Not exactly.
