Michael Avenatti can’t stay out of the limelight for long. No sooner does one of his hare-brained attention-getting schemes blow up in his face than he’s back with something new. Last month it was Julie Swetnick, the woman who claimed that Brett Kavenaugh and his pals had gang-raped her at a party. When it was revealed soon after Avenatti broke the story that Swetnick had herself “engaged in unwelcome, sexually offensive conduct” at a job she held, the porn attorney quickly cut bait and went in search of something that would generate headlines.

He found it on Tuesday at a Vanity Fair summit when he cornered NBC News reporter Dylan Byers over lunch with his next big idea. Byers apparently liked the idea, because he tweeted out that afternoon:

According to Townhall:

If Avenatti wins – which he’s assuming he will – he’d donate proceeds to Puerto Rico and the Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network (RAINN). Makes you wonder if he chose RAINN as a recipient as a means of keeping talks of sexual assault on the table. After all, he’s trying to push Stormy Daniels’ story … again.

Business Insider adds that Trump, Jr. and Avenatti have been trading barbs online lately. On Monday, the president’s son and namesake taunted the celebrity hound, tweeting in reaction to the story that ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner might soon be paroled for good behavior:

The following day, Avenatti took his best shot back at Trump:
