Why do you think Avenatti is running for POTUS?

First, my opinion, so there's no question about where I stand. When asked on Twitter if he should run, I replied:

No. He has no governing experience, and he cannot just leapfrog into the presidency like some Green Party candidate who will do nothing but split the Dem vote.

Speaking of which, he's never answered my direct question of whether he would even run as a Dem, or go third-party.

That said, I'm beginning to wonder if Avenatti is a plant. He appears to have let drop the Stormy Daniels case, and turned his attention to the presidency.

Go ahead and call me paranoid, if you must. But kindly give me your thoughts.

The Qanon nuts are getting crazier.

Re the article below: Crokin isn't quite up to speed on the latest idiocy; the general consensus among the Qanon conspiracy kooks is that JFK Jr. is dead, all right -- murdered by (who else?) Hillary.

Liz Crokin: John F. Kennedy Jr. Faked His Death And Is Now QAnon

Last weekend, right-wing “journalist” and fringe conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin did an interview with online psychic and YouTube host Jenny Moonstone in which she laid out her theory that John F. Kennedy Jr. faked his own death in 1999 and is now behind the QAnon account.

QAnon is an anonymous figure at the center of a right-wing conspiracy theory known as “The Storm” that alleges that high-ranking members of the Trump administration have been using the 8Chan forum board to drop hints revealing that Robert Muller’s [sic] special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is really cover for a secret operation to take down a global network of satanic pedophile cannibals. Proponents of this conspiracy theory have increasingly been making their presence known at Trump rallies.
