The game is afoot, and this time it is a confidence game.
Our country’s leading con man—or confidence man (a swindler who take your trust and your cash)—is getting his comeuppance.
The attorney for Stormy Daniels (the porn star who is suing President Trump) is setting traps to con the con man by claiming the president will topple from his perch.
“He is going to be forced to resign,” the attorney—Michael Avenatti—told reporters this week.
Taking a page from Trump’s own playbook, Avenatti is setting up the president’s fall by creating a self-fulfilling prophecy, reported widely in the news.
“We have only scratched the surface,” the lawyer claims.
“More evidence will come to light.”
And the president will resign.
Avenatti is playing the news media to predict Trump’s downfall, using the same ploys as the hustler-in-charge, baiting reporters with promises of juicy morsels to come.
Voyeurs, we watch for the coming train-wreck.
