Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Photobombs Trump Staffers At WHCD

Virginia Kruta Associate Editor

Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing adult film star Stormy Daniels in her case against President Donald Trump, made an appearance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner — and managed to crash a live CNN interview with Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway.

The White House press secretary and senior advisor, respectively, were telling CNN about President Trump’s decision to attend a rally and “be with the people” rather than attend the dinner, which he also skipped last year. A few seconds into the interview, Avenatti walked by in the background.

As he walked by, Avenatti appeared to realize that the two were on camera — and he quickly did his best to grab as much screen time as possible.

Avenatti’s client and the ongoing case against Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who admitted to paying Daniels a sum of $130,000 to refrain from speaking about her relationship with Trump, provided some of the material for host Michelle Wolf’s set during the event.
