There seem to be a lot of posts these days about Avenatti. Many of them wish that he would go away. I can understand why not having him on center stage would be desirable. He is who he is and none of his actions should be surprising. In addition, he represents Stormy Daniels and the path they take may not always be one that perfectly aligns with what you may consider to be a better one for resisting Trump.

I will always be grateful to them for their actions, especially the earlier ones. For a crucial period of time, Avenatti and Stormy were the only voices breaking through and criticizing Trump. Every time her name came up, people were reminded of just how unsavory The Donald could be.

In addition, they could not be cowed or insulted into a caricature. Trump seemed to be wary of going after them. Their indifference to his attacks bewildered him and disarmed him. He had perfected that method for dealing with adversaries and had never really developed another effective strategy.

They were a constant reminder of Trumpís darker side. Those in the Trump cult would never believe them but for those who still had doubts, this was one problem that would stick to Trump. If not for Avenatti, the only voices seemed to be MSM pieces that seemed to be bewildered by Orangeman. I will never understand why they did not dissect him mercilessly and keep writing stories that would clearly expose his lies. They seemed to think they had to balance the type of stories they wrote about each side. The fact that he was an irredeemable asshole with no good side seemed to escape them.

We do not owe Avenatti donations for some campaign he seems to be planning or votes for any position he desires. He also still deserves to have his actions checked and no free pass if we think he is wrong. However, I also think that Avenatti and Stormy have earned a place on the stage where Trump is presented. She deserves her day in court and I hope they refile their case in some form. They arenít perfect allies but who is? They are not nearly as bad as some people who should know better. Iím not going to pretend now that they donít belong on our side. They walked point for a long time.
