Former liberal media personality and once-potential presidential candidate (at least according to his enablers), Michael Avenatti, is facing the music….. again.

In July of 2021 the disgraced former "creepy porn lawyer" was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison for trying to extort $25 million from Nike. He was then sentenced earlier in June of this year to 4 years in prison for defrauding client Stormy Daniels, and the best was yet to come.

Earlier this week, the man who The View once compared to the Holy Spirit was sentenced to his lengthiest term yet - 14-years - for stealing millions of dollars from clients. He was also ordered to pay $11 million in restitution, the majority of which is owed to the IRS. 

Sadly, but predictably, the same media that sung his praises has gone suspiciously silent throughout his continued fall from grace, which Fox News’ Greg Gutgeld reacted to on his show last night.


GUTFELD: Avenatti will start serving those 14 years after he finishes that term, and by then, I'll be 60. Now, for those of you too young to remember, Avenatti became quite the liberal hero. You know, like a tax collector or a doctor who gave sex changes to kids. 

And the media, they couldn't get enough of Avenatti and that slick skull of his, handicapped by their own biases and poor judgment. Remember all this nonsense?

  • CHRIS CUOMO, 2018: You got lucky tonight. We're back with attorney Michael Avenatti. He is a main player.
  • ANA NAVARRO, 2018: To me, you're like the Holy Spirit. You are all places at all times.
  • JOY BEHAR, 2018: He's out there saving the country.
  • CHRIS MATTHEWS, 2018: Look, I think you're doing a hell of a job... I don't think you're in this for money.
  • BRIAN STELTER, 2018: Looking ahead to 2020, one of the reasons why I'm taking you seriously as a contender is because of your presence on cable news.

You're like that sack of eyeballs in the back of my fridge that didn't age well. No wonder CNN gave Brian Stelter his walking papers, whatever it takes to get him to exercise.
