Avenatti stood before an Iowa crowd and told them to forget what Michelle Obama had said when she lived in the White House about going high when Republicans go low. He wants Democrats to throw that out with the bathwater and get nastier than they are now.

Mr. Avenatti, the hard-charging lawyer who represents the pornographic film star Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels, did not once mention the former first lady in his keynote speech Friday night at the Democratic Wing Ding, a party fund-raiser in northern Iowa. But there was no mistaking his meaning.
“We must be a party that fights fire with fire,” Mr. Avenatti said to cheers from the audience, his voice rising. “When they go low, I say hit back harder.”
He received a thunderous ovation at the end of his speech, notably louder than the applause for the night’s other speakers, including Representative Tim Ryan of Ohio as well as Representative John Delaney of Maryland, who is running for president.
At times, his language verged on apocalyptic. The Democratic Party, he said, is “fighting for no less than the survival of our republic,” and doing so against “a man that wants to turn back the hands of time, to send us back to the Dark Ages.”
Michael Avenatti, in Iowa eyeing 2020 run, urges Dems to reject Michelle Obama’s “When they go low, we go high” on Trump. He drew big applause at #WingDing saying, “When they go low, I say hit back harder.” First Iowa byline for @MaggieAstor https://t.co/RNHRfLTs3e

You gotta love the arrogance of people who EVERYTIME they look in the mirror believe they are looking at the next POTUS. This self-infatuated, attention seeking snake-oil salesman @MichaelAvenatti couldn’t get elected dog catcher. https://t.co/YZ3nTDEMpx
