Fox News host Martha MacCallum blasted Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, after he claimed Fox wouldn’t interview him.
Over the weekend, Avenatti appeared on CNN to fuel theories that Fox was too afraid to interview him, where he implied that the right-leaning network doesn’t “seem to want me on their shows much.”
During a segment Monday, MacCallum exposed Avenatti for telling what appears to be a bold-faced lie.
She said the producers for her Fox program, “The Story,” scheduled an interview with him for Tuesday, but he canceled.
As reported by The Daily Caller, MacCallum set the record straight:
“That is not actually the case.”
“In fact, Mr. Avenatti was scheduled to appear on this show tomorrow night. But this morning, he abruptly canceled the interview despite his pledge to appear on Fox News this week.”
After MacCallum called him out, Avenatti responded by calling the Fox host “classless.” He also claimed he had to abruptly cancel his Fox interview due to a “commitment with the case.”
You are classless @marthamaccallum. I agree to go on your show tmrw and then had to cancel due to a commitment with the case that I explained to your producer first thing this AM. You respond by calling me out on your show and deceiving people?! #unprofessional #agenda #basta

Social media user lit up Avenatti for attacking MacCallum, with many claiming he didn’t want to appear on Fox because the Daniels case isn’t panning out quite like he envisioned:
Nah uh. You won’t find a person who agrees with you. @marthamaccallumis ALL class and a pro. You can be aggrieved about the booking without using baseless ad hominem attacks. Which, incidentally, do nothing for your client. Remember her, your client? https://t.co/mmKmF4HIKk

Just spitballing on this one, but maybe a question about the disc he tweeted out and implied was a smoking gun and has yet to produce was actually going to be asked about and followed up on… https://t.co/IjSfuVso3i

LOL! He means that Fox would point out that he’s being paid by the DEMOCRAT PARTY to push the MORAL-LESS PORN QUEEN’s Take Trump Out agenda.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006, which the president has vehemently denied on numerous occasions.
She also claims Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000in 2016 as part of a nondisclosure agreement.
Perhaps Avenatti cancelled his Fox interview because he was afraid to answer tough questions — which he never gets asked on CNN.
