Donald Trump has been trying to tweet his way into the limelight surrounding the life and times of Senator John McCain (R-TX) upon his death. The man who wants to be leader of the free world even decided to go to Texas to support Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and grab a few headlines. The president said that he wanted to get the largest stadium in the state, which would hold over 105,000 people at a minimum. Yet, before he grabbed even a little attention, possible presidential candidate Michael Avenatti jumped upon the stage and blotted out the light shining on POTUS.
The pit bull attorney who has consistently supported the little guy against the rich and the corporate will lead a resistance rally in Texas “at the exact same time of Trump’s.” The fiery attorney has shown no fear of the man sitting in the Oval Office:
‘I am excited to announce that I will be leading a large resistance rally in Texas at the exact same time of Trump’s (details tba). All groups are welcome to join. We must fight fire with fire and we must send a message that we will fight to make America America again. #Basta”
The Avenatti rally is open to everyone. Conversely, the commander-in-chief’s rally only accepts his over-the-top base supporters. Given how much Senator McCain gave to this country, fewer and fewer people want to listen to Trump attack the true American hero.
The well-televised attorney has been visiting Iowa, New Hampshire, and other early voting states. Unlike Trump, Avenatti grew up mowing lawns, shoveling snow, and working at McDonald’s. Raised in Missouri, he clerked by day and went to law school by night.
Avenatti announced that he is creating a political-action committee, Fight PAC. Its purpose is to support Democratic Senate and House candidates as they try to take back Congress during the midterm elections.
Cruz used to run first in his race to represent the very red state of Texas. Now, however, Representative Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) has come out giving him a real run for his money in the 2018 Senate race. O’Rourke went to every country in the country’s second largest state, whereas Cruz did not.
The sitting senator wanted to debate O’Rourke five times. Certainly, he expects to win those, because he was a national debater during his days at Princeton University. O’Rourke commented to Houston Public Media:
‘One of the challenges we’ve had is that Senator Cruz not only attempted to dictate the date, the place, the time, um, also the moderators, the subjects that we could talk about.’
Trump has said that he will spend his time holding rallies for Republican candidates across the country – whether they want him or not. POTUS can do a significant amount of damage to candidates in some of those states, especially after McCain reminded the country about patriotism, honor, and courage.
Cruz and O’Rourke have been running neck-and-neck. More recently, the representative has gone from a double-digit approach to a single point race in the most recent polls. Avenatti could make the difference.
