Showdown: Don Jr And Michael Avenatti To Fight For Charity?

Attorney Michael Avenatti challenged first son, Donald Trump Jr. to a three-round mixed martial arts fight on Tuesday, with the benefits to go to charity.

The story came to light when NBC News senior media reporter Dylan Byers tweeted that while having lunch with Avenatti at the Vanity Fair Summit, Avanatti proposed the fight.

“I’m having lunch with Michael Avenatti @MichaelAvenatti at the Vanity Fair Summit and he’s proposing a three-round mixed-martial arts fight with Donald Trump Jr. @DonaldJTrumpJr for charity,” Byers said. “No joke.”

Avanatti retweeted the comment by Byers “This would be for two great causes. I’m in.”

“My portion of the proceeds from the fight will be split 50% to rebuilding Puerto Rico and 50% to @RAINN. Just waiting on Bif to confirm. #Basta”

This is just the latest in a long line of social media tiffs between the Trumps and Avanatti, who has represented several cases that reflected badly on the president.

Last month, President Donald Trump tweeted about Avenatti, calling him “a total low-life,” in response to his representation of one of the women with an uncorroborated accusation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“Avenatti is a third rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” Trump wrote. “He is just looking for attention and doesn’t want people to look at his past record and relationships – a total low-life!”

Avenatti responded by saying, “you constantly brag about how smart you are. Meanwhile, I think it is obvious that you barely made it through Penn, which happens to be where I went as well. Let’s both publicly release our complete Penn transcripts on Fri. so people can compare.

President trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr. responded to the gauntlet thrown down by Avenatti, saying, “I’ve got a better idea. Why don’t we compare your accomplishments since then. #basta.”
