A Cleverly Timed Attack

After Time Magazine's publication on Michael Avenatti's recent interview, I smell a suspicious narrative.

Michael Avenatti, now well known as the attorney for Stormy Daniels and Julie Swetnick, has taken issue with his representation in a recent TIME interview feature of his.

In the interview, according to Time, Avenatti remarked how the Democratic Party's 2020 Presidential Candidate better be a white male.

Now Avenatti has already taken to Twitter denouncing the statements, claiming he has been misquoted and taken out of context.

But at least to me, it seems awfully suspicious that this type of comment would come from someone in his position at all.

For one thing, he's considering a run for the position himself. Having such a statement on his record would certainly be a convenient way to demolish any support for him. But what's more is that, in the Democratic Party, whiteness and masculinity, especially combined is a liability, not an asset.

Whether viewed as good or bad, the Democratic Party is clearly very concerned with identity politics; it would be difficult to argue otherwise. White men have been viewed negatively by this segment of the political spectrum, and most Democratic Party frontrunners have some sort of identity perk, either a racial minority status or gender status (sometimes both).

Some, like Elizabeth Warren, even attempt hilariously to make themselves appear as more of a minority to gain more support and incentives.

So even if he was dumb and brazen enough to make such a comment (which may actually be true), how he would get such an idea is downright strange.
