Creepy: Avenatti Endorses Joe Biden for 2020: 'He Has My Enthusiastic Support'
'Creepy Porn Lawyer' backs 'Creepy Uncle Joe' for presidential election
After announcing his 2020 presidential campaign early Thursday, Joe Biden has already picked up a glowing endorsement from a famous name - "Creepy Porn Lawyer" Michael Avenatti.
Disgraced attorney Avenantti, who picked up the "Creepy" monika after representing adult star Stormy Daniels during her anti-Trump campaign, said on Twitter that the former vice president has his "enthusiastic support."
“I am extremely happy that @JoeBiden has decided to enter the race. He offers Dems the very best chance in 2020, especially in key states,” Avenatti tweeted.
"He has the fight, intelligence and fortitude to beat Trump and begin to make America, America again. He has my enthusiastic support."
The core values of this nation… our standing in the world… our very democracy...everything that has made America -- America --is at stake. That’s why today I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States. #Joe2020 https://t.co/jzaQbyTEz3— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) April 25, 2019
According to Fox News, earlier this month, Avenatti, the former Stormy Daniels attorney and once-rumored 2020 presidential candidate, was slapped with three dozen new federal charges alleging he stole millions of dollars from his clients, failed to pay taxes and lied in bankruptcy cases, amongst other accusations.
The 48-year-old was indicted by a Southern California grand jury following his arrest last month in New York for allegedly trying to shake down Nike for up to $25 million.
Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe. I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign. It will be nasty - you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas. But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!— Donald J.

“I intend to fully fight all charges and plead NOT GUILTY,” Avenatti posted on Twitter at the time after being freed on a $300,000 bond.
“I look forward to the entire truth being known as opposed to a one-sided version meant to sideline me.”
If convicted on all of the new charges, Avenatti would face 335 years in prison, federal investigators say.
He is scheduled to be arraigned on April 29 in United States District Court in Santa Ana.
Avenatti dipped his toe in political waters later year and seemingly sounded out a potential 2020 run, before announcing in December he would not run, citing family concerns.
“After consultation with my family and at their request, I have decided not to seek the Presidency of the United States in 2020,” Avenatti said in a statement at the time.
"I do not make this decision lightly—I make it out of respect for my family. But for their concerns, I would run."
