WATCH: Michael Avenatti Apologizes For Comparing Giuliani To A Pig, Says The Pig Deserves Better
Stormy Daniel's attorney Michael Avenatti wants to apologize for calling President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani 'a pig.' Yet, it wasn't to whom you'd think: he says the pig deserves more respect than that comparison.
"I don't think Mr. Giuliani's attacks are going to go anywhere. People in America are going to be able to see him for who and what he is. But, I do want to go back on what I said, though. I called him a pig last night, and earlier this morning, an apology actually is in order. But, not to Mr. Giuliani, but rather to the pig, for associating Rudy Giuliani with a pig.
This guy is a disgrace. It's disgusting. It has no place in American society or anywhere else for that matter. And. he should have been fired. And, the fact that he wasn't shows a complete lack of leadership and moral compass on the part of the president."
Avenatti initially called Giuliani the name because he said he didn't respect a porn star like Stormy Daniels.
Here was what Giuliani said that drew the condemnation from Avenatti and everyone else who heard him:
"I'm sorry, I don't respect a porn star the way I respect a career woman or a woman of substance or a woman who has great respect for herself as a woman, and as a person, that isn't going to sell her body for sexual exploitation."

Avenatti then sent out a tweet, saying essentially the same thing:
Stormy Daniels is currently suing President Trump over a nondisclosure agreement that she signed in order to keep quiet about an affair she claims they had. To this day, Trump still denies that it has ever taken place and says Stormy is lying about the entire thing.
